Inter Milan has turned their season around with incredible run of results winning 8 of the last 9 matches in Serie A which has put them in a position where they can challenge for the top 3 spots in the league. Currently sitting fourth in the table 8 points behind second placed Roma and 6 behind Napoli who are third. A win for Stefano Pioli’s men will put them back in the contention and something to build on for rest of the season.
Team News & Lineups: AS Roma on the other hand are also in good knick and although trail Juventus by 7 points and highly unlikely to make a title challenge they must keep winning games to stay clear in the race for champions league qualification. Last time these two meet was back in October when Roma came ran out 2-1 winners but alot has changed since than and I expect Inter to put on a good show this Sunday.

Inter Milan on the other hand has experienced squad but most of their top players are at the wrong end of careers. Captain Mauro Icardi has huge responsibility who has scored 6 of the 8 inter goals in Serie A this season. He will start upfront with Perisic playing in no.10 role. Four man midfield of Candreva, Jao Mario, Ever Banega and Gary Medel will provide some stability in central areas but Inter’s problems lie in their defense David Santon, D’Ambrosio. Miranda and Ranocchia are expected to start.
