After thrashing Hellas Verona 6-0 mid-week, Inter will look to continue with their rhythm in Serie A as they travel to the Capital for Roma vs Inter. AS Roma have a chance to go over Inter and get back into the top four. However, they welcome a Nerazzurri side that have found their goal-scoring momentum. Lautaro and Dzeko completed their brace against Verona, but Inzaghi might give them a rest. Meanwhile, AS Roma are stumbling in the crucial part of the season.
The Giallorossi have failed to win in their last three games, and in contrast, Inter have won their last three matches to end their miserable run in Serie A. The recent draw to Monza has further tainted Roma’s chances of finishing in the top four. But Mourinho will be confident to play against his former side at home and will be looking to complete a double tomorrow.
Roma vs Inter Serie A: team news, tactics, and prediction
Both Inter and AS Roma will set their lineup with one eye on the semi-finals next week. The Nerazzurri face their eternal rivals AC Milan while Roma will welcome Bayer Leverkusen. Inzaghi is likely to start Lukaku and Correa as the duo got full rest in the last match. Also, the Italian manager would want to keep Lautaro fresh for the Derby della Madonnina. While Onana, Barella, and Bastoni should return to the lineup.
Matic returns after serving his suspension, but Mourinho has a long list of players out for this game. His star-signing Paulo Dybala might start on the bench if he passes the fitness test. Belotti and Shaarawy are other absentees along with Wijnaldum and Smalling. So Pelligrini should support Tammy Abraham at the front.
Jose Mourinho will pose a serious threat with his pragmatic tactics and compact defense. But Inter should take three points home considering their recent form.
AS Roma 1-2 Inter Milan.
