Lecce vs Inter Milan: FW Predictions

Lecce return to Serie A for the first time since suffering relegation to the second tier of Italian football during the 2019/20 campaign. The hosts claimed the Serie B title and will be confident about their chances of staying up this season but they couldn't have asked for a much-tougher opening match at home to Italian giants Inter Milan.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams have scored in three of the last six league meetings between these two clubs and on each of those occasions, Lecce had the home advantage. Two of Lecce's last four fixtures have produced goals at both ends of the pitch, including their 3-2 home defeat in the Coppa Italia last week. Four of Inter Milan's last five matches have seen both teams score so while the visitors look supreme going forward, they often leave themselves vulnerable at the back.

Lukaku to Score First

Romelu Lukaku has rejoined Inter Milan on loan from Chelsea this season and the Belgian star has plenty to prove after a frustrating year away in England. Before he left Italy, Lukaku bagged 64-goals in 95 league games for Inter Milan and was easily the best striker in the division. Now he's back and looking to make up for lost time, which is why we're backing Lukaku to score the first goal of this game.

Inter Milan backed to beat their newly-promoted hosts

As you might imagine, Lecce haven't had a whole lot of money to spend but have managed to bring in a few players this summer. Daniel Samek joins from Slavia Prague for £1.80m, Lameck Banda also cost £1.80m while Joel Voelkerling Persson arrived for £720k and Federico Di Francesco cost £450k. Right-back Federico Baschirotto has joined the club for £315k, Bistrovic has made a loan move from CSKA Moscow and both Ceesay and Brancolini came in on free transfers. Massimo Coda went out the door for £1.35m and Gargiulo joined Modena for £675k.

Joaquin Correa made his loan move permanent this season, joining Inter from Lazio for £21.24m but Lukaku is the biggest signing so far, coming back on loan for a season from Chelsea. Empoli youngster, Kristjan Asllani has also come in along with Bellanova from relegated Cagliari. The former Ajax goalkeeper, Inana, has made the move to Inter Milan on a free transfer as has Roma's Mkhitaryan. Perisic, Vidal and Sanchez have all left the club on free transfers, freeing up a decent chunk of the wage budget.
