The Inter recovery, which I covered briefly ten days ago (see below) is now well and truely under way and another three wins and nine goals later, they are up to sixth, still have two games in hand and only trail hated rivals Milan, who are nervously looking over their shoulder, by just nine points. A win tonight will eat into that lead further and I believe that they will want to do so in style, with the Serie A programme to themselves and a chance to lay down a big marker to their neighbour and the other title pretenders. The mood at the club is completely different under Leonardo and once again, the best squad in the division take to the field of battle expecting to win. The brazilian coach has been especially good with the south american players in the squad and with the samba rhythm in their legs instead of the leaden tactics of Rafa, it is like Inter have 5-6 new players hungry for victory and enjoying the beautiful game. Cesena will come with a packed defence, which was pretty much their tactics on the road even in their promotion season last year, they do not score enough goals to stay in the top flight IMO and to be honest, have ridden their luck at times to collect the 19 points which see them level with Lecce, who are battle hardened from numerous relegation campaigns, in the final drop zone spot. Their only away win came recently at Brescia, where the home side gifted the vsitors two goals courtesy of shocking defensive errors and failed to find an equaliser despite creating 20 attempts on goal.

A win tonight will take the Nerazzurri above Roma and into fourth spot, I can see only two outcomes this evening, Inter win by one goal or they win by more ! They are playing so freely and scoring for fun, that I have to go with the latter and will also take a speculative bet on them scoring four or more, just as they did against Bologna at the weekend.

1.5 units Inter -1.75 goals 2.04
0.5 units Inter "over" 3.5 goals 4.33 +... 4.50 available.

Good Luck.
