Stadium: Giuseppe Meazza (Milano)
Referee: Davide Massa
In the central match of Saturday's program of the 8th round of Italian championship Inter will take on Roma on its home field. Who will turn out to be stronger? Let's choose several betting options.
Inter is off to a bad start
Simone Inzaghi's wards have already had 4 defeats in the new season. It is a bad start for the team that won the championship only two years ago (albeit under the leadership of Antonio Conte) and last season was the strongest in the Italy Cup. In fact, the nerazzurri lost to every strong opponent - 1:3 to Lazio, 2:3 to Milan, 0:2 to Bayern in the Champions League. And in the last matchday of the Serie A before the international break, Inter failed to beat Udinese away - 3:1. At this rate, Inter can expect serious changes in the near future.
Roma is falling behind
At the start of the season, Jose Mourinho's team looked excellent in almost all games, but often failed to score. Basically, Roma's main problem is the realization of scoring chances. On the previous matchday the giallorossi completely outplayed Atalanta, but failed to score and ultimately lost 0-1. Thus, Roma had three defeats in the previous five matches. In addition to Atalanta, the Romans lost in the Europa League 1:2 to Ludogorets, and were also defeated away by Udinese in the Italian championship - 0:4.
Injuries and disqualifications
- Inter: Dalbert, Hakan Calhanoglu won't play;
- Roma: Jorginho Wijnaldum, Ebrima Darboё, Paulo Dybala, Rick Karsdorp, Marash Kumbulla, Stephan El Shaarawy won't play. Lorenzo Pellegrini is under question.
Expert Betting Tips
Inter can't afford to lose - Simone Inzaghi's team has already lost a lot of points at the start of the championship. Although Roma certainly hopes to make up for the unfortunate defeat against Atalanta. Probably, the giallorossi will be able to score in the upcoming game - Jose Mourinho's team must get some compensation for the lack of luck in their last encounter. Most likely, Inter will also score - the neradzurri score in every match of the championship. Having scored once each, the opponents may stop.
