Bet of the Day: Enhanced Lukaku 1st goalscorer wincast appeals on Inter debutPublished on: August 26, 2019Author: Jamie Clark
Antonio Conte got his man, so an enhanced Romelu Lukaku 1st goalscorer wincast as Inter Milan play Lecce looks value on Monday.
The Nerazzurri start their Serie A campaign in their iconic San Siro stadium against a promoted side.
New Inter boss Conte should hand big money signing Lukaku his competitive debut. The big Belgium frontman left Manchester for Milan with United happy to sell the stocky striker.
Lukaku is still just 26, but has all the attributes to be a hit in Italian football. With a similar build to Diego Costa, who played under Conte at Chelsea, this is a great starting point.
After scoring over 100 goals in about 250 Premier League games, Lukaku can be lethal up front. When Inter last won Serie A in 2010 they had Diego Milito leading their attack.
The Argentine frontman was a similar type of centre forward to Lukaku and helped the Nerazzurri to a historic treble.
When Conte was at former club Juventus, he often played with Basque frontman Fernando Llorente through the middle.
Archetype striker Lukaku 1st goalscorer wincast value at enhanced odds
There’s a pattern emerging here. Both Inter as a club and their current coach have had success with a physical presence like Lukaku leading the line.
Lecce have spent seven years outside Serie A, so this is a tough beginning on their return to the top flight.
Despite their rapid resurgence achieving back-to-back promotions under Fabio Liverani, this is a tall order.
That’s why an enhanced Lukaku 1st goalscorer wincast at 9/2 with William Hill looks worth a bet.
Conte also captured Uruguay international Diego Godin to shore up defence. A lynchpin of multiple successes at Atletico Madrid, his arrival further transforms and improves the Inter spine.
As the Nerazzurri are long odds-on favourites to win, this price boost looks a great way to get some value.
Bet of the Day: 9/2 with William Hill, enhanced Romelu Lukaku 1st goalscorer wincast in Inter v Lecce.
