Stadium: M.A. Bentegodi (Verona)
Inter has confirmed why they became the champions by defeating Verona 4-0 in the opening match of the Italian Championship. Will they be able to win in the second round?
Nothing good awaits Verona?
Again, but still worth it - Eusebio Di Francesco, the current head coach of Verona, has failed miserably twice in a row. First at Sampdoria and then at Cagliari, and there is no reason to assume otherwise in his new job. In fact, the mentor's opening game at the head of the team has confirmed all fears. The first leg at home against Sassuolo ended in a 2-3 defeat. It should be noted that Di Francesco's team played the entire second half with less players following the suspension of Miguel Veloso. However, even before he got his red card, the score was 1-0 in favor of Sassuolo.
Inter is the true champion
The team's first match of the new season showed that Antonio Conte's departure is not as catastrophic as is commonly thought. Simone Inzaghi has established himself at Lazio not only as a quality coach, but also as a promising one. It seems that at Inter he really has a huge space for his own development. Yes, there was only 1 match, but 4-0 is a formidable victory, which can hardly happen without any reason.
By the 14th minute the scoreboard was already 2-0, in the second half Inter scored two more goals. It is important to mention that the team's newcomers played an excellent match. Both Edin Dzeko and Hakan Calhanoglu scored goals and assists. The departure of Romelu Lukaku and the potential departure of Lautaro Martinez is not such a problem for the team.
Expert betting tips
Eusebio Di Francesco only beat Simone Inzaghi as coach of Roma. In teams where the class of players at his disposal was lower, the current head coach of Verona has always been worse. We shouldn't expect anything different in the upcoming game. Most likely, Inzaghi with Inter will once again outplay the hapless coach of recent years.
Prediction - Inter will get their second win at the start of the season.
