Inter vs PSV Eindhoven | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
For the Italian powerhouse, the upcoming clash is the most important game of the season. We could add even seasons, as they didn’t have any notable international successes over the recent few years. The guests are coming to Italy with a desire to spoil Inter’s plans and get even for a loss in Eindhoven, which was a bit controversial. Dutch champions didn’t deserve to lose that one.
Inter has the same number of points like Tottenham and they are trailing the second place. At the moment, the English club is in a better position because they scored more goals than Nerrazurri. However, the Spurs play at Camp Nou against Barca, which increases Inter’s chances of reaching the knockout stage of the Champions League. The guests are last with one point, and they can’t move up.
Luciano Spaletti and his team had one big match this weekend which they lost. It was Derby Della Italia against Juventus, in Turin, and the Old Lady triumphed with a minimal result. Inter did have a couple of chances, some of them very promising, but they failed to use them. Four of their last five games were on the road and in neither of them the three-time Europan champion managed to win. But is we look only the matches at home, Inter didn’t lose in seven straight, recording six wins and a draw. Furthermore, four of the previous 5 at Giuseppe Meazza ended with them keeping clean sheets. During this invincible streak, only two contests haven’t seen a moderate efficiency, meaning 2 or 3 goals.
We already mentioned several times in these previews that PSV deserves more than their current record in this group. They really played well, losing twice in the last moments, after having a lead in the beginning. The match against Inter was controversial because of the referees and their questionable decisions which damaged PSV in the end. It seems that they didn’t have enough experience for anything greater than this. There isn’t much to say about the productivity of the events they play. Latest 6 finished with over 2.5 goals, and all 5 in the Champions League group stage also saw three or more scores.
Latest Team News
Dalbert and Nainggolan will be out of the picture for the hosts. The Dutch midfielder is back in training, but it is almost certain that he won’t start. Ryan Thomas is long gone from PSV’s protocol, and he won’t be back until late February.
So far Inter and PSV met three times in the Champions League. And the Italians have all three wins. Back in 2007, Inter won in Milan, 2-0, and 0-1 on the road. In the first leg in this UCL edition, they managed to get away with a 1-2 win at Philips Arena.
Odds and Predictions
Nerrazurri are huge favorites, and the bookies gave 1.30 on their triumph. Meanwhile, a draw is 5.50, and PSV’s victory 8.50.
Inter vs PSV Eindhoven | Top Betting Tip: Inter (2-0)
This game is too important for the Italian team, and there is no doubt, that they won’t hesitate to do anything in order to win. After several years of being absent from the big stage, this is their ticket to get back, and a clash against PSV is of the utmost importance to them. It is why we want to propose their win as the final outcome. Now, the odds aren’t high, but if you add Inter to win with clean sheets, it should bring substantial profits. The efficiency isn’t going to be very high. Simply, when Inter plays at home, and especially in some significant matches, there aren’t too many chances. Under 2.5 goals is the first solution, and we are sticking with it. Therefore, the ending of this preview will be, Inter – PSV Eindhoven 2:0.
