Serie A returns this weekend with a blockbuster Inter vs Roma match tomorrow. Both teams are looking to bounce back after losses in their last games. Inter had a major setback before the international break as they lost 3-1 to Udinese. The Nerazzurri are far below their expectations and will have to tackle a big challenge at home on the weekend. They will have to pick up their form soon, or else the season will get out of hand.
AS Roma had a positive start to the season as they had only one draw against Juventus. But after a shameful 4-0 loss to Udinese, the Giallorossi have been struggling. The international break would have come as a refresh button, and they will be keen to get a win over Inter as their last victory over Inter was back in February 2017.
Inter vs Roma Serie A: team news, tactics, and prediction
Inzaghi will miss the services of Lukaku once again the Belgian is still recovering from his thigh injury. However, he now has Hakan Calhanoglu back in the team, who will be taking place of former AS Roma captain Mkhitaryan. There are talks of changing the formation to help Inter get out of their bad phase. Inzaghi can use a number 10 behind Lautaro and Dzeko to give something different in attack. However, Asllani will need support in the midfield as he will be taking place for Brozovic.
Jose Mourinho might not start Dybala, who is still recovering from his injury and was not a part of Argentina’s starting eleven. But the former Inter manager still has plenty of quality with Zaniolo and Pellegrini. Also, the in-form Cristante will partner with the summer-signing Matic in the double-pivot.
Inter have to pick up their form soon, but they face the Giallorossi with a couple of key players missing.
Inter Milan 1-0 AS Roma.
