Inter Milan v Livorno Preview, Serie A Saturday 9th November 2013

Inter Milan head into this game on saturday night having had a decent enough start to their new campaign which has seen them win 6, draw 4 and lose 1 of their opening 11 matches played and currently has them placed in 4th position of the league table on 22pts.

Walter Mazzarri will be slightly concerned over the amount of games his side have drawn though as they have taken the lead in every one of those matches and the dropped points have been costly ones as Inter Milan now sit 9pts behind current league leaders Roma.

Livorno have had a difficult start to their new campaign and currently occupy 14th position in the league table having recorded 3 wins, 3 draws and 5 defeats from their 11 matches played, but Davide Nicola’s side do head into this game having beaten Atlanta 1-0 at home in their last fixture which should provide the players with plenty of confidence of getting at least something from this one on saturday night.

Inter Milan v Livorno Recent Form (Last 5 Games – Left to Right)

Inter Milan: L D W D W

Inter Milan have a slight advantage on the recent form satistics having won 2 of their last 5 matches played. Livorno have only managed 1 victory from their last 5 played of which they have lost 3.

Inter Milan v Livorno Match Betting Odds Market.

Inter Milan have only been defeated once this season and with home advantage it should come as no surprise to see the online bookmakers having the hosts priced up as the clear odds on favourites to win this game at a current best price of 1/3 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw is probably the best result that Livorno can get from this game for me, but even that looks unlikely with only two of the last eleven matches having finished all square and the current odds of 9/2 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) will unlikely attract much interest in this game.

Livorno don’t win many games away from home and have only managed one victory on the road this season which came against whipping boys Sassuolo and I really can’t see them having any chance of causing an upset in this game which is reflected by their current odds of 10/1 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers).

Inter Milan v Livorno Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This is a game that Inter Milan can not afford to drop any points from if they are to have any ambition on winning the league title and qualification to the Champions League next season as Livorno will be seen as a relatively easy 3pts for others in this league.

Livorno seem to save their best results when playing at home and have only managed one victory away this season which came against newly promoted side Sassuolo who it seems everyone is beating in comfortable fashion and although they do have a striker in form in the shape of Paulinho, I just can’t see it being enough to cause an upset here.

Unfortunately the online bookmakers seem to agree and currently have Inter Milan priced up as the clear odds on favourites to win this game on saturday night and with those odds offering no value we are forced to look at other betting markets.

The goal stats suggest this to be a low scoring game with maybe only one or two goals scored, so things like Both Teams to Score NO, Under 2.5 Goals and Win to Nil could be the value plays here in what should be an Inter Milan victory by one or two goals on the night.
