A couple of bumps in the AC Milan road means Inter’s Scudetto destiny is back in their hands, and next up for the Nerazzurri is a trip to face a Spezia side who are as good as safe after a welcome boost in form over the last few weeks.

Thiago Motta’s side have picked up seven points from their last four games, including vital wins over 17th place Cagliari and 18th place Venezia.

That releases some of the pressure off their shoulders, so the impetus is very much on an Inter side to build on their own promising run to land a major blow on Milan in the race for the title.

So, read on for our full match preview and expert football betting tips for Spezia v Inter.

Inter Milan Half-Time/Full-Time

There appears to be a bit more urgency about this Inter side, following back-to-back 1-1 draws in the middle of March.

A potentially daunting trip to Juve followed, but a first-half penalty set Inter on their way to an excellent 1-0 win in Turin, before they comfortably beat Verona last weekend.

Going further back, their 5-0 win over Salernitana saw them take another first-half lead, so there’s evidence to suggest manager Simone Inzaghi has his side adequately fired up for the run-in.

Spezia certainly represent some form of test, but they were dispatched without much fuss at the start of December in the reverse fixture and having established an eleven-point buffer between themselves and the bottom three, we think they may well take their foot off the gas a bit here.

Inter can only deal in wins as we approach the season’s climax, so the away victory at both half-time and full-time at 19/20 (bet365) looks a solid play at evens with our favourite sports betting sites.

Spezia Form, squad news, opinion

Currently sitting 15th in the Serie A table, the brief for manager Motta will be to take his side higher than the 15th they managed at the end of last season.

And with just three points between themselves and 12th-placed Udinese, that’s certainly a realistic aspiration to keep his side ticking over between now and May.

Their run-in is tough, though, with games against Inter, Napoli, Atalanta and Lazio featuring in their final half-dozen engagements, but this is a side that have thrown up some surprises already this season, having won away at both Napoli and AC Milan.

But that was when they were scrapping for their lives, and now they have a healthy cushion between themselves and the dogfight down below, we think it might well be a low-key end to the season.

Good news for the hosts is that they have no fresh injury or suspension absentees for this one.

Inter Milan Form, squad news, opinion

A run of just one win in five had put Inter’s title defence in serious jeopardy over the course of February, but they appear to have some through it now and haven’t lost in almost two months.

Four clean sheets in their last six is also much more like it, and out of the three main challengers for the title, Inzaghi’s side almost certainly have the kindest run-in.

A home clash with Roma is their toughest test, but their other six games all come against sides sitting in the bottom eight of the table, so it’s no surprise to see them at odds of 8/11 (888sport) to pip Milan and Napoli to the Serie A title.

And we think they’ll get the job done too, starting with a comfortable win in Spezia.

But they may well have to do it without defender Stefan de Vrij, who came off at half-time in their win over Verona with an injury and is likely to be out for the Easter schedule.

History

This is one of the freshest domestic fixtures we have previewed in recent times, with only three meetings taking place between Spezia and Inter.

And Inter are undefeated in those opening trio of games, winning a couple and drawing the other.

About the Venue

The Stadio Alberto Picco is a hidden gem in the stadium world, with a picturesque, hilly backdrop looking over the 11,466-seater.

But with just five wins and 16 goals to their name in 15 games there this season, Spezia haven’t enjoyed a great deal of home comforts this campaign.

Conclusion

Spezia are a potentially dangerous proposition, but Inter’s win at Juventus a week or so ago could well prove to be a major turning point in their mid-season wobble and with some decent fixtures ahead of them, they should be in a good place mentally.

The Nerazzurri are also developing a welcome habit of getting their noses in front early on, so we think they’ll ultimately prove too good over the course of 90 minutes for a home side that can almost certainly start planning for life in Serie A next season.
