Internazionale vs AS Roma Preview

Internazionale vs AS Roma

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

Date: 21st January 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

This is the biggest game of the weekend in Serie A and for both clubs, it is a must win as they look to recover from their recent slumps and get back into the race for a Champions League spot.

The biggest questions for Inter Milan ahead of this game would be: can Luciano Spaletti inspire them to a win against his former side and end their current dreadful run of form or will he allow AS Roma get back in the race for a Champions League place.

Inter remain without a win in their last seven games and if they lose here they could drop out of the top four while AS Roma would move back in.

They have an overall good record against Roma and having Spaletti who built the Roma squad should be a plus.

Mauro Icardi has scored at least 50% of Inter’s goals this season and he is available for selection here also.

AS Roma have not won any of their last 5 games heading into this game but a win would see them get back into the top four having been knocked out by Lazio.

Roma are a good side going forward as they have scored in 84% of their games this season however, just like Inter, they are conceding too many goals.

In their last four meetings against each other, they have both scored but Inter have won more games against Roma (79) than any other side in the league.
