Inter will return to action for Seria A matchday 17 against Monza at the Stadio Brianteo. After beating the only undefeated and arguably the best Seria A side, Napoli on Wednesday, the Nerazzurri will look to keep up the momentum.
Edin Dzeko’s thunderous header from close range was enough to seal the victory, however, Inter did miss out on plenty of other chances to stretch the score line.
Inter now sits in 4th place in the Seria A table, only 2 points behind city rivals, AC Milan.
Monza’s first-ever Seria A campaign has been a roller coaster ride thus far. They are in the bottom half of the table and will fight hard to survive the drop. There’s an eerie sense of unpredictability with Monza as they have come up with decent performances in between. Monza will look to test Inter’s vulnerable defense in this week’s matchup.
