Match Preview: Inter vs Roma – Lineups, Stats, & Prediction

0

Champions of Italy will host Roma at the San Siro for a midweek clash. Inter thrashed Sampdoria 5-1 in their last outing and will look to continue their run against Roma.

Inter have already secured their fate by winning their 19th title last week and are currently on easy-peasy mode. Roma on the other hand is fighting an uphill battle to qualify for Europa League.

Inter will be looking to continue their untouchable 19-game unbeaten streak in the league and end their campaign with maximum points.

Roma is in seventh place in the Serie A table with only two points ahead of Sassuolo.

Statistics & Encounters

Inter have only trailed for 46 minutes across the last 18 Serie A matchdays.

The head-to-head tie between the two sides is even-steven, with five draws in their last five league meetings.

The two sides drew 2-2 in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

Alexis Sánchez has been involved in 20 goals in his 21 Serie A starts with Inter.

Andrea Pinamonti has scored six of his 11 Serie A goals coming from the bench.

Should Inter win each of their three remaining matches (and finish on 94 points), it would be the second-best final points tally in Inter history in the league after 97 points in 2006/07.
