Today's Top Two Predictions for Inter Milan vs Venezia

The Serie A leaders take on relegation battling Venezia at the San Siro on Saturday for a match that the odds suggest will end in an Inter Milan victory. The hosts are looking to extend their lead at the top of the table to 5pts, while defeat for the visitors could see them drop into the relegation zone.

Martinez to Score

Lautaro Martinez is Inter Milan's top scorer in Serie A this season with 11-goals and we're backing the Argentine striker to find the back of the net against Venezia this weekend. Martinez has scored five goals in his last 10 appearances for the hosts and is due a goal on Saturday after failing to find the back of the net against either Atalanta in Serie A or Empoli in the Coppa Italia.

Inter Milan Win-to-Nil

Inter Milan claimed a 2-0 win when they made the trip to Venezia back in November, and we're backing the title challengers to secure all 3pts and keep another clean sheet this weekend. Inter have won four of their last five matches in all competitions and have kept clean sheets in two of their last three outings in Serie A, while Venezia have lost three of their last four games in all competitions, failing to score in two of those defeats.

Inter Milan vs Venezia: Key Stats & Figures

Odds stacked against newly-promoted Venezia

Inter Milan needed the help of extra-time to beat Empoli in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday night. Sanchez put the hosts in front on the 13th-minute but two second-half goals thrust Empoli in front. Ranocchia was the hero of normal time, equalising in the 91st-minute and in extra-time, Sensi scored to secure Inter's place in the next round. As far as Serie A goes, Inter sit top by 2pts ahead of their local rivals AC Milan and with a game in hand.

Inter Milan Predicted Lineup: Handanovič, Dumfries, de Vrij, Škriniar, Bastoni, Perišić, Brozović, Çalhanoğlu, Barella, Martínez & Džeko

Last weekend Venezia played host to Empoli in  Serie A desperate to secure a much-needed 3pts. Instead, the home side had to settle for a share of the spoils as they came back from a goal down in the first half to equalise in the 73rd-minute through Okereke. Venezia are just 2pts above the bottom three as things stand and could slip into the relegation zone this weekend.

Venezia Predicted Lineup: Lezzerini, Molinaro, Caldara, Ceccaroni, Črnigoj, Cuisance, Ampadu, Kiyine, Tessmann, Aramu & Henry
