Inter will look further to strengthen their second-place spot during matchday against Sampdoria. Having won the derby against Milan in a dominating fashion, the team’s morale is undoubtedly higher than their competitors.

Sampdoria is sitting in the relegation zone at the moment but surely is a tricky side to play against.

In spite of showing dominance in numerous matches against stronger clubs, Inzaghi’s men have had turbulent times against weaker sides. The loss against Empoli was a major setback since the restart and some near misses against Monza and Cremonese also slowed down the Nerazzuri’s charge for the title.

The Nerazzurri will need 100% focus, determination, and will to beat Sampdoria if they want to be even remotely close to the league leaders, Napoli.
