Inter Milan have no room for error as their quest for the Champions League spot has become too compelling as they currently sit in 4th position just behind their city rival AC Milan. They will take on Hellas Verona on their home turf on Saturday afternoon at 1:00 pm GMT.
Although the away side aren’t at their best, it won’t be a walk in the cake for the Milanese side. The hosts will have to give their best to snatch a victory, especially keeping their goal in mind for this season.
Inter Milan, on the other hand, are in really good form and have kept some great defensive form. The Nerrazurri have kept clean sheets in almost half of their home fixtures. It was Inter’s goal to gain a place in the Champions League the following season and right now, they are in the right path. But, they can’t lose their focus a bit if they are to reach their goal.
On the other hand, Hellas Verona have been struggling in the league with them sitting currently in 19th just 22 points from 28 matches winning six and losing 18 in the process.
The Milanese side have 55 points from 28 games they have played during which they have won 15 and lost just 3.
The Argentine striker will be the main man in breaking the defensive line with Hellas Verona not showing that good of a defensive game. The game may see his brilliance in defeating their counterpart.
Petkovic has been the best player for Hellas Verona side this season and if they are to create an upset against this strong Inter Milan side, he will have to influential in front of the goal.
Of the 16 games, the two sides have played, Inter have had the upper hand with them winning 13 of the games losing none. Their last two fixtures were of the score 2-1 and 3-3, so this may prove to be an exciting fixture depending on the motivation of the Hellas Verona side.
Borja Valero and Matias Vecino may have to settle for a place on the dugout once more, with Marcelo Brozovic and Rafinha being favorites to start for the Milanese side. Andre Ranocchia is injured and will not feature in this fixture for Inter.
Moise Kean is the only one unavailable for Verona this weekend, but the coach will have enough options to compensate for him in the forward position. Bruno Petkovic and Ryder Matos are expected to get the chance over Alessio Cerci.
