With a Derby win to humiliate Milan and seal the Coppa Italia final, Inter are on a role. The Inter vs Roma 21/22 match will hold significant importance as this is one of the few difficult fixtures left in the league for Inter. While Milan and Napoli will play more difficult fixtures, Inter must grind out a result against Roma. As Milan travel to the capital to play Lazio, can this be the weekend for Inter’s return to the top? Although Inter are well and truly in the driving seat with a game in hand, Milan are still on top with a two-point cushion. If not through this fixture, Inter will surely have a chance to reclaim the throne in the mid-week fixture against Bologna given that they get all three points against Roma.
As Mourinho returns to the Giuseppe Meazza, he will look for his first win against Inter. The former Nerazzurri manager has not won a game against his old club since taking over the reins at Roma. Mourinho has not found a solution to Roma’s inconsistency. Coming up against a side like Inter can be a hard nut to crack for the Giallorossi this time around.
Inter vs Roma 21/22 Statistics and Encounters
Inter have won their last four games. Two of them against the likes of Juventus and Milan. Simone Inzaghi’s Inter have found the perfect balance and have also got rid of their goal drought.
