Inter Milan vs Roma Football Match Preview 06 Dec 2019
League leaders Inter will host Roma at the San Siro on Friday as they look to extend their lead at the top.
Form of Inter Milan
After trailing Juventus for a long time, Inter are finally back on top. Juve hosted Sassuolo last weekend and could only salvage a 2-2 draw. Inter had the chance to go above the defending champions, and they took it. Antonio Conte’s men hosted SPAL on Sunday and claimed a 2-1 win. Lautaro Martinez scored twice in the first half to set his side on its way to the three points. Mattia Valoti scored for SPAL, but Inter held on for the win.
The win against SPAL was their fifth straight in the league. Inter last dropped points against Parma in October. Juventus are the only team to beat Inter in the Serie A this season. Conte has come up with a side which is in contention to end Juve’s monopoly in Italy. The striking duo of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez have been major factors in this rise. Lukaku has scored 10 in the league and Martinez has added 8 so far.
Only Lazio have scored more goals than Inter in the league this season. In terms of the defence, they are second as well. Juventus is the only side which has let in fewer goals than Inter. Diego Godin has been a mainstay in defence, but he was rested against SPAL. The Uruguayan should come back in at the expense of Danilo D’Ambrosio.
Form of Roma against Inter Milano
As for Roma, the title is not in their sights right now. But they have impressed, and are in contention for a Champions League place. Roma have won their last three games in all competitions. They have lost one of the last nine league games. That loss was a 2-0 result against Parma. Since then, their league form has taken a turn for the better. Roma faced Verona on Sunday and recorded a 3-1 win.
Justin Kluivert gave them the lead before Davide Faraoni levelled the score for Verona. Diego Perotti restored Roma’s lead with a penalty, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan sealed the win with a goal in stoppage time. Both Perotti and Mkhitaryan came off the bench, and coach Paulo Fonseca had the luxury of calling them as substitutes.
Surprisingly, the last three meetings between these two sides have ended in draws. Inter claimed the last win which was a 3-1 result in 2017. Both teams have scored in the previous seven encounters, which suggests that we will see goals in this game. These two sides last met in April, and that game ended in a 1-1 draw. Ivan Perisic and Stephan El Shaarawy got the goals in that game.
