Betting tips and match preview | UEFA Europa League
Inter Milan welcome Southampton to the San Siro on Thursday evening, in the third round of matches from the Europa League group stages.
Frank De Boer’s side come into this match on the back of a 2-1 defeat at home against Cagliari in Serie A.
The hosts took the lead through Mario (55) but defensive frailties saw then concede two goals late in the second half to consign them to another home defeat.
Goals from Melchiorri (71) and a Handanovic own goal (85) saw Inter slip to 11th, they are already 10 points off leaders Juventus.
Inter In Poor Form
Inter had gone into the weekend’s fixtures in poor form, with back to back defeats in all competitions.
They have started the Europa League in poor form as well, with two defeats in two matches in what should have been an easy group for them.
Hapoel Be’er Sheva defeated them in the opening match 2-0, with the 3-1 defeat against Sparta Praha in the second game leaving them rock bottom of the group.
Despite their poor form Inter remain favourites, with a win sure to boost the confidence of a fragile Inter Milan side.
They will be looking to register their first win of the competition, they will also be looking for their first win in 5 matches.
A win may still not be enough to move Inter off the bottom of the table, they will need a win to ensure they have any chance of progression.
Southampton travel to the San Siro on the back of a 3-1 win against Burnley at the weekend.
It’s a result that sees Southampton continue their incredible run of four wins in six matches, they are also unbeaten since the opening Europa League game as well.
They had drawn their previous two matches going into the weekend’s game, they emphatically put those results to bed though.
Goals from Charlie Austin (52, 66) were both from the penalty spot and Nathan Redmond (60) combined to ensure that Southampton went 3-0 up.
Sam Vokes also converted a penalty (72), in what was the third of the day and there could have been another early on, it was a small consolation for Sean Dyche’s side though.
Big Game For Southampton
Claude Puel’s side are currently joint top of their group, with a 0-0 draw against Hapoel Be’er Sheva in their last Europa League match.
They have registered four points from their opening 2 matches, with the English side unbeaten in their Europa League campaign.
On matchday one they comfortably beat Sparta Praha 3-0, with goals from Charlie Austin (5, 27) and Jay Rodriguez (90+2).
English Side Underdogs
Southampton come into this match as underdogs, they will be looking to register their second win in the Europa League this season.
This will be a tough fixture for the visitors, arguably the toughest of their Europa League campaign, with Inter one of the best sides in the competition on paper.
Claude Puel’s side will be looking for their biggest win of the season, on form alone Southamton are the favourites but Inter have yet to hit top gear this season.
Both teams are 4/6 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Inter are Mauro Icardi at 4/1, with Ivan Perisic and Eder at 6/1. For Southampton, Charlie Austin and Shane Long are at 6/1 with Nathan Redmond at 15/2.
This is the first meeting between the two sides in European competition.
