Livorno v Inter Milan Preview, Serie A, Monday 31st March 2014

Livorno are having a bad season so far as they find themselves sitting in 18th in the dreaded relegation zone. They currently have only racked up 24 points so far and they have lost 1 in their last five outings. Given Livorno are away from home for this fixture I can see them having a real go at Inter and if they manage to get all 3 points they will move out of the relegation zone.

Inter have not had a very good week but if they manage to overcome Livorno on Monday night they might just get their European ambitions back on track. Last season they could only manage a ninth placed finish so they have not appeared in any European action this season but at the moment they are definitely in with a shout of finishing in a Europha League spot.

Inter had a little bit of a wobble as last weekend as they lost to Atalanta and then midweek they were held to a goalless draw with Udinese. I believe if Inter are looking to secure some form of European football next season as they want to sign some big names tin the summer which include the like of Torres, Dzeko and Morata. Nemanja Vidic has already agreed to join the Italian outfit for the beginning of next season.

Livorno v Inter Milan Team News

Livorno Team News:

Manager Domenico Di Carlo will be quietly confident as he has all his main men fit for this encounter on Monday. The only injury they have is to midfielder Andrea Luci who is suffering from crucial ligament damage. Livorno have no players suspended for this game and with only one main injury concern the visitors can also name a strong squad for this game.

Inter Milan Team News:

Walter Mazzarri will also be delighted heading into this fixture as he only has one player who will miss out which is the very experienced defender Cristian Chivu who is suffering from a long term injury and is expected back for next season. Inter also have no suspended players so the manager can name a relatively strong squad for this game.

As we can see above in the recent form statistics there is not much to choose between the two clubs, but Inter do have a slight advantage over their opponents Livorno as they have managed to win 2 of their previous 5 matches played compared to Livorno having managed to secure just 1 victory from their last 5 games played.

Livorno v Inter Milan Match Betting Odds Market.

Livorno have never beaten Inter Milan in their previous 12 meetings and if I am honest I don’t think that is about to change on Monday night. The only positive thing I can say about Livorno is that the two draws they have managed against Inter over the years have both come at home. The bookmakers have Livorno to win at a best price of 18/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw is not a bad shout for all the neutrals out there who like a flutter as Livorno really need something from this game if they are going to stay in the division come next season. The best price for the draw is coming in with a best price of 5/2 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers).

Inter Milan will see this game as a make or break for their Europa League aspirations, so personally I think they will come through this match against Livorno with the vicotry and send a message to the teams around them who are fighting for that last European place and the bookmakers seem to agree with me as the best price currently available is 19/20 with Coral (£20 Free Bets for New Customers).

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

So its crunch time for Livorno as this is one of their few home games they have left to play so if they are to remain in Serie A for another season I feel they must take something from this game even if it’s a valuable point.

Having said that I really feel they will come away from this game feeling disappointed as I feel Inter Milan will snatch all 3 points come Monday night.

Inter Milan will have to win these games against teams that are fighting for relegation if they are to secure European football next season and if they are to attract some quality players to boost their squad which is much needed after a pretty poor season by their standards.

So down to my predictions, which is quite tough given the bookmakers fancy Inter to win this one. My banker is going to be quite a brave one and definitely value for money in my eyes and it is Inter Milan’s top goalscorer Palacio to score and Inter to win in a score/win bet.

My saver this week is going to be over 2.5 goals as I feel because both teams really have to go for the win I think that will open the game up so we should see a few goal grace the net, which will be good for the neutrals and should provide for a very entertaining game on monday night.
