San Siro – Serie A
Inter welcome Hellas Verona to San Siro after a hiccup against Parma last round and will be hoping Lautaro Martinez’ and Romelu Lukaku’s fine form continues. Inter are well on route to challenge Juventus to the title this season and this is a must win match if they are to continue their path to glory. Antonio Conte’s men are facing a Verona team on the up with two wins from their last two matches.
In nine home games against Verona, the away side have only got one point to show for. Inter have scored 22 times and conceded five in their last nine fixtures against the Gialloblu at home. The last one between the two teams ended in a 3-0 win for the Nerazzurri last season. Then Mauro Icardi scored twice for the home side. He is now at PSG and won’t be able to help. Ivan Perisic scored the other goal and also he has moved on to pastures new with Bayern Munich.
Danilo D’Ambrosio should be back from a broken finger this weekend, as he has missed six games due to the injury. Roberto Gagliardini got injured last weekend and might be out for this weekends match, whils Kwadwo Asamoah is also facing a spell on the sideline with a knee injury he caught in the start of November. Alexis Sanchez won’t be back until January.
Koray Günter had to miss one match through illness, but the centre-back should be recovered for the game at San Siro. Miguel Veloso injured himself this weekend and is doubtful with a calf injury, joining a list of a total of seven players on the injury list for the away side.

Inter are hanging on only one point behind league leaders Juventus, waiting for the Bianconeri to slip up again. They need to keep going to catch up with the unbeaten Old Lady and make sure they don’t slip up when expected to win. At home they are expected to do so, and stand at 1.34 to beat Verona, who give 10.75. A draw is at 5.20.
Verona are ninth in the Serie A this season and don’t look like they are about to give way just yet. Inter will have to expect a tough encounter at home, but the controversial 2-1 win over Brescia last weekend have made it difficult for the away side to focus solely on the next match. They have been in the news of late in Italy and will have to look past all the fuss when they face Antonio Conte’s second placed Nerazzurri this weekend.
