My Team's Next MatchInter Milan

Southampton, the small club that develops players and sells them to Europe’s elite, keeps producing a quality on field product. They are enjoying good football at the moment and this week their fans get to enjoy a journey to the San Siro, one of world football’s most famous arenas.

And if there is one place that Inter Milan do not enjoy football at the moment it is at the San Siro. Their last Europa league game at home was a 2-0 loss to Israeli side Hapoel Be’er Sheva; a match that the fans labelled as their darkest night. They followed that up with a 3-1 loss away to Sparta Prague. Against those same two sides the Saints have claimed 4 points and 2 clean sheets.

Inter Milan vs Southampton Betting Prediction

Inter Milan is not treating this competition with any respect. As punters we are obliged to note that.


Southampton are playing good football and as they are not a public team the fact that the line is this low for them to win in Italy should sound off alarm bells. The Saints have only allowed 1 goal in their last 7 games in all competitions. Inter Milan on the other hand is a club on the verge of crisis.

Troubled Times for the Nerazzurri

Inter has issues on and off the field that are affecting each other at the moment. Young Argentine Striker Mauro Icardi released his biography this week. In his biography he retells a story of an altercation with the Ultras, one of Inter Milan’s firms, a group of hardcore fans. Icardi has harsh words for them and the Ultras have responded with harsh words of their own. In conclusion, this is good for no one and Icardi is on the verge of being stripped of his Captain’s arm band. Icardi will be getting booed by the Ultras and cheered by those who oppose the Ultras until this is resolved.

Furthermore Inter Milan have a new ownership group who is trying to buy every player on Earth which is causing it’s own side show.

And finally Inter Milan are not winning games. We know they have the potential to be good, because they beat Juventus this season. But currently they sit 11th in the Serie A table. Until they rectify their multitude of problems it is best to fade them.

Stephen Bronfman, son of former Expos owner Charles, remains cautiously optimistic for a new era of Montreal Expos baseball.
