The Inter vs Crotone 20/21 Serie A fixture will mark the comeback of the Nerazzurri from the winter break. Subsequently, Inter were in prime form before going on the break. Conte’s side won 7 out of their last 7 Serie A encounters to sit second in the table. On the first Sunday of the New Year, Inter will host Crotone at the San Siro. The Calabria club sit 19th in the table after a horror campaign before Christmas.
Antonio Conte will have all the players he prefers at his disposal. The only missing link can be Alexis Sanchez whose fitness is in doubt. But, don’t be surprised if you see him start the game today. Conte will most likely stick to the winning combination and start Handanovic in the goal and Skriniar, de Vrij and Bastoni in the back three. The midfield will likely consist of Barella who’s a regular, Brozovic and one of Gagliardini, Sensi or Vidal. Achraf Hakimi has made the right wing-back slot his own which he’ll start. Darmian or Young might start on the left. Conte should stick to Lukaku and Lautaro upfront as Sanchez is unavailable.
If there’s one thing that Inter must improve then it has to be the first half shortcomings. The Nerazzurri often look lost in the first half and even when they do look good, they fail to capitalize. Such an attitude can cost Inter dearly against bigger opponents. Conte must try and fix this against smaller clubs to be ready for the challenges the likes of Roma and Juventus will pose in the upcoming games.
Inter vs Crotone 20/21, Inter must keep the show going
The Inter vs Crotone 20/21 game is important because Inter will want to continue their winning streak. Thanks to a flurry of wins, Inter have opened up a considerable lead on Roma who sit at the 3rd spot. But, it will be equally essential to keep winning in order to catch Milan who are just 1 point ahead. Milan have struggled to win lately and a slip-up can hand Inter the top spot. Antonio Conte and his men must be looking for that one opportunity to jump on and claim the top spot in a bid to win the Scudetto.
