Inter will travel to Stadio Olimpico to have a face-off against Roma on Sunday. The two sides are only 3 points apart in the Serie A standings.
Inter’s 8 game winning streak came to an end at the hands of Sampdoria during the midweek clash. While Conte’s men created many scoring opportunities but ended up with only 1 goal.
Roma will impose a serious threat as they are also on a 3-game winning streak. The attacking duo of Mkhitaryan and Dzeko will trouble the back 3 of Inter and they will have to be at their very best if they wish to avoid a loss.
