With a Serie A crown looking unlikely this season, Inter Milan boss Simone Inzaghi will be determined to make sure his side’s Coppa Italia title defence does not come to an end against Parma on Tuesday night.
Unbeaten in their last four games in Serie A, Inter have the form to come out on top in this cup encounter but they might be made to work for the win at the San Siro.
Inter Milan vs Parma Betting Tips
- Inter Milan to win, both teams to score and over 4.5 Inter corners @ 2/1 with #PickYourPunt
- Edin Dzeko first goalscorer @ 10/3
A calf injury means hosts Inter will still be without Marcelo Brozovic after the player picked up a knock while playing for Croatia against Argentina in the World Cup semi-finals.
Inzaghi must also do without full-back Dalbert who remains out on the sidelines as he recovers from a cruciate ligament injury.
As for Parma, head coach Fabio Pecchia has his own injury concerns with Elias Cobbaut, Gabriel Charpentier, Daniel Ansaldi and Valentin Mihaila all unavailable for the trip to Milan.
Veteran keeper Gianluigi Buffon is also set to miss the clash at the San Siro as the 44-year-old continues to struggle with a hamstring issue.
Inter Milan to win, both teams to score and over 4.5 Inter corners @ 2/1 with #PickYourPunt
Inter are likely to make changes against their Serie B opponents, but head coach Inzaghi will still be looking for the balance to name a strong side while giving some players a rest before a league game against Hellas Verona at the weekend.
The Nerazzurri were frustrated last time out with a 2-2 draw at Monza, in a game that again highlighted their shortcomings at the back.
Inter have kept just one clean sheet in their last five Serie A games and Parma will take confidence from that ahead of a daunting trip to the San Siro.
The hosts should have the strength in depth to come out on top in this one but, as mentioned, Inter’s defence is far from water tight.
Meanwhile, Inter have averaged 5.29 corners a game in their 17 Serie A games this season.
With all those factors in mind, an Inter win, with both teams to find the back of the net and over 4.5 corners for the hosts is worthy of consideration through #PickYourPunt at 2/1
Edin Dzeko first goalscorer @ 10/3
Scoring in three of Inter’s last four Serie A games, vteran striker Edin Dzeko is a man in form for the Nerazzurri at present.
The former Manchester City and Roma forward only played 55 minutes last time out against Monza, so he should be fresh to start against Parma this week.
It would be no surprise to see the in-form Dzeko add to his goal tally as Inter hope to avoid any banana skin and progress to the next round of the Coppa Italia.
