Torino-Inter Preview: The final matchday of Serie A

On the last matchday of the Serie A season, Inter are looking to seize 2nd place with the Champions League final on the horizon.


We are upon the 38th and final matchday of the Serie A championship. For Inter, they will be facing Torino FC at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino on Saturday. Ivan Juric’s team returns from battering Spezia 0-4 a week ago, their fifth consecutive match without a loss. At 53 points and currently tied with Fiorentina, the Granata are looking to secure 8th place in the league.

On the Nerazzurri side, Inter are targeting second place in the standings. They are currently third with 69 points as Inzaghi’s team is 2 points ahead of Milan, but 2 behind Lazio. After tomorrow, Lautaro and his teammates will look towards the Champions League final against Manchester City in Istanbul.

Torino coach Ivan Juric is sending out his top players for tomorrow. Between the posts is Milinkovic-Savic and in front of him, Schuurs will be flanked by Djidji and Buongiorno as the defense. In midfield, Ricci and Ilic will start in the center with Singo and Rodriguez on the wings. Finally in attack, Sanabria takes his place as striker and will be supported by Vlasic and Miranchuk.

Simone Inzaghi may not opt for a complete rotation of his lineup. Captain Samir Handanovic may return in goal and could play in the last match of his Nerazzurri career. In defense, we should see Matteo Darmian, de Vrij over the now usual Acerbi and finally Bastoni rounding out the back three. In midfield, Inzaghi will probably let Barella and Dimarco rest by replacing them with Roberto Gagliardini and Robin Gosens. Dumfries, Brozovic and Calhanoglu should complete the central puzzle. In attack, Lautaro and Lukaku will look to maintain their current hot streak, while Edin Dzeko takes the bench.

Torino (3-4-2-1): Milinkovic-Savic; Djidji, Schuurs, Buongiorno; Singo, Ricci, Ilic, Rodriguez; Vlasic, Miranchuk; Sanabria.

Inter (3-5-2): Handanovic; Darmian, de Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Gagliardini, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Gosens; Lautaro Martinez, Lukaku.
