Inter will take on Hellas Verona at the San Siro for Serie A matchday 18. Quick turnaround for Inter after a short week as they played the Coppa Italia clash against Parma.
Inter failed to gain maximum points against Monza in the previous Serie A fixture and gave away a late goal to earn a draw. The midweek Coppa Italia fixture was an exhausting match, to say the least as it went into overtime after both sides failed to score a winning goal in the first 90 minutes. Acerbi’s floating header from long range scored the decisive goal in favor of Inter.
The schedule will not go easy on Inter as they are competing in multiple competitions and the lack of squad depth and quality will become a major concern as the season goes on.
Verona is currently sitting in the relegation zone with only 9 points this season.
