Today's Best Bet: Monday, August 26


Leigh Copson: Back Inter Milan to beat Lecce 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 @ 7/5 Paddy Power

A new season brings new hope and Inter Milan’s hope for the 2019/20 campaign is that they will somehow find a way to close the gap between themselves and last season’s top two, Juventus and Napoli. Inter were able to secure a top-four finish and a place in the Champions League during their first campaign under ex-Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, but this time around fans will be demanding more than a top-four finish that saw them finish well off the top two, 10 points behind runners-up Napoli and a mammoth 21 behind champions Juventus. A fast start is crucial when trying to challenge a Juventus side that have dominated Italian football for the best part of the decade, so will Inter come storming out of the blocks on Monday night or will they false start?

The visitors to the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium are newly-promoted Lecce, who ended a seven-year exile from Italy’s top flight last season. The Giallorossi plummeted all the way down to the third division in 2012 when they got caught up in the match-fixing scandal that rocked Italian football, and it was not until the summer of 2018 that they finally clawed their way up to Serie B. Their stay in the second tier proved to be a short one as they immediately earned promotion to the top flight by finishing second in the table, but are the really ready to mix it up with the big guns this season?

Lecce could not have asked for a much worse fixture than a trip to face Inter Milan in their season-opener. You could simply describe this as a baptism of fire for Fabio Liverani’s men. While Inter finished well off the pace in the title race last season they boasted one of the better home records in Serie A and a big reason for that was their rock-solid defence. While only eight clubs scored less goals at home, Inter were rescued by a defence that conceded just 10 times at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium in the league – the best home goals against record of any side in Italy’s top tier!

Mancini will be hoping that the summer arrival of Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United will add some much-needed firepower this time around, but right now it would be a risky move to back Inter to become some sort of free-scoring force in their season opener. We can, however, have plenty of confidence in them shutting out Lecce on Monday night, so backing Inter to win 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 is a very tempting bet for this Serie A clash.
