Inter will make the trip to Olimpico di Torino on Sunday after two victories on the trot. One of those coming against a much-fancied Liverpool side at Anfield, handing them their first home defeat in a year. Despite bowing out of the Champions League, Inter will put their focus back on the two domestic titles on offer now. The Torino vs Inter game will be a crucial game for Inzaghi’s men to keep the momentum going.
Although Torino come into this game with no wins in their last six games, they held the likes of Juventus to a draw. At this stage in the season, Inter cannot afford to drop points and let Milan and Napoli gain on them. Moreover, with that said, expect Inzaghi to field a full-strength side as Inter won’t be playing a mid-week fixture after a long time.
