Double Chance – Home or Draw 39/10

Inter Milan have been an unstoppable force in fixtures, winning 8 matches in a row and registering no losses in their last 10 matches. They are the team to beat in this season’s Italian Serie A. Domestically they have played 24 matches, 20 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss. It has been an exciting time for the Italian giants who have also been cruising in the UEFA Champions League.

They finished second in Group D with no losses, 3 draws and 3 wins. Win probability gives Inter Milan a 54% chance of walking away as winners from this first leg. Atletico Madrid, under Simeone, has won every trophy available to them except the UEFA Champions League. They are sitting fourth in La Liga behind Barcelona, Girona & Real Madrid. It has been more than a decade since Simeone joined Atletico Madrid. If they are going to get this illusive trophy, it will start with a win against Simone Inzaghi’s Inter on Tuesday evening.  

Home Team Clean Sheet – Yes 16/13

Without the away goal rule. Atletico Madrid will not overextend themselves in search of getting goals on the board. You can expect them to play a cagey game trying to take a goalless draw to Madrid or a low scoring result to Madrid. Which makes sense from an Atletico Madrid perspective. Inter has shown signs of a team that struggles away from home across all competitions. In UEFA Champions League they have conceded 4 goals away from home and only 1 goal at home.  

Anytime Goal Scorer – Marko Arnautovic 27/10

Arnautovic is a key player off the bench for Inzaghi, scoring a goal at home against Salernitana. He managed to get an assist against Roma in the game before that and it looks like he will feature in the Champions League on Tuesday evening. He is a player with a lot of ability and skill. A player who can score the decider if he is brought in off the bench.
