In the city of Romeo and Juliet continues our Friday walk on the football fields of Europe, in a match of the second round of Serie A, Verona welcomes the champions Inter, we hope for a quality and productive match.
Verona and at the start of the new season played again at its Stadium Marcantonio Bentegodi, unfortunately in front of about 5500 of his supporters suffered a loss to Sassuolo with 2: 3. In the interest of truth, the men of Eusebio Di Francesco fought men and after falling behind by 0: 1 and left with a man less after the expulsion of the Portuguese veteran Miguel Veloso in the 45th minute, scored two goals. They did not even reach a point, and today the powerful team of the convincing champions of the country is visiting "Jaloblu" and it will be extremely difficult. However, there is hope, in the last three home games of this opponent, Verona presented itself very boldly and somewhat successfully. According to reports, only Veloso will be absent for the red card.
Inter started at the start of the new championship in the way it finished last season - in the four controls won with 15: 0 goals, the last 3: 0 over Dynamo Kyiv. At Giuseppe Meazza in front of 27,500 fans, the Nerazzurri left no doubt in their superiority and won convincingly 4-0 over Genoa in the official debut of Simone Inzaghi, who replaced Antonio Conte. This was only part of the huge changes, both in the board of directors, in the official sponsor "Pirelli" after 26 years of cooperation, in the players already without the goal machine Romelu Lukaku left the team in the direction of Chelsea ... Many fans expressed dissatisfaction, but if the victories continue, they will surely calm down, and Edin Dzeko came from Roma and replaced the batter with a goal in his own debut.
In 2017 - 2018 - two victories of Inter - 3: 0 in Milan and 2: 1 on this field. In 2019 - 2020 - 2: 1 for the grandee at home and the only point for Verona in these matches at this stadium - 2: 2. Last season - two minimal victories for the "Black - Blues" - 2: 1 as a guest and 1: 0 on the field. There are three good options for this match - 2, goal / goal and over 2.5 goals, but we direct you to the first and most secure in our opinion - forecast 2 and good luck to all!
Verona with strange changes
I have already shared (about Sampdoria and Fiorentina ) that I do not understand these coaching shifts in Italian football at all.
Now for the Verona team.
Last season, they had no worries about their survival. And besides, they were a bony nut for all the favorites.
They change their coach with Cagliari's. Who were fighters for survival. They were even the 3rd team with the most losses in Serie A.
Well, I don't understand that.
And the only thing I can think of is that maybe Verona's mentor left voluntarily to go to a better place.
Anyway. But now we have to keep that in mind.
By the way, this change did not bring the necessary impetus. And Verona started the season with a home loss of 2-3 from Sassuolo.
Inter is strong as a guest
Let's wonder now what to do with those from Verona.
Not only the champion as a guest. But also a team they have not won in the last 21 matches. Of which they lost 17.
Antonio Conte was replaced by Simone Inzaghi at the helm of Inter.
But here the start of Calcio was with a convincing home victory with 4-0 over Genoa.
Data for Inter from last season show only 2 losses as guests. And the strongest protection away from home.
But I have no idea whether these Nerazzurri football statistics will be maintained during the current campaign.
Forecast for Verona - Inter
Verona lost to Sassuolo 2-3. But what was worse was that for a moment there were no signs of a positive result for them.
Their first goal was from a penalty, when they were already 2 goals behind.
And the bad thing was that the captain of the team - Miguel Veloso - was now punished for a second yellow card.
Inter didn't just take Genoa literally. But they also showed two different faces in the match.
In the first half with an incredibly high press left the opponent breathless.
And the opponent's attackers did not have access to the ball.
Two goals scored and one canceled due to an ambush by Ivan Perisic were the least they could score.
In the second half, Inter apparently relaxed. And they let the opponent play a little with the ball.
Only at times did they change their speed sharply enough to score two more goals.
And the unfortunate Perisic had another goal canceled due to an ambush.
But what football forecast to choose?
In my opinion, the possible miracle here is of two components:
- Verona not to lose the match.
- Verona should not lose at halftime.
Well, I won't count on miracles then.
Inter to lead in the First Half and win the match is my choice for a bet.
