Inter vs Genoa Match Preview & Prediction, Team News, Stats, Head to Head
Conte’s men will once again continue their 19/20 Serie A title chase this weekend when they host second to the last team on the standings. Despite scoring an early goal and holding the lead at their last match against Fiorentina, Inter conceded a late equalizer at the 92nd minute, denying the Nerazzurri three points. This resulted in the team’s drop to second position following Juve’s victory last weekend and during the week against Udinese and Sampdoria respectively.
Though their Champions league title quest came to an abrupt end, they continue their international competition journey at the Europa league stage after being drawn with Ludogorets. A win on Saturday will see them return to the top of the table through goal difference as they share with equal points Juve. No new injury concerns for Conte with the likes of Sanchez still out. The Nerazzurri are without the services of top striker, Martinez Lautaro who was suspended alongside Brozovic. Dodin will likely return to the back three after being named on the bench at their last match.
Predicted Inter XI: Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Godin; Candreva, Vecino, Agoume, Biraghi; Lazaro, Lukaku, Politano
Genoa find themselves at the nineteenth position, uncomfortably sitting in the relegation zone with an unenviable record of zero wins in their last seven accruing just three points from those. Their task isn’t made any easier this weekend as they face second place Inter Milan. The problem for Genoa isn’t entirely a lack of cutting edge as they seem able to nick a goal or two however that back line has failed to keep back to back clean sheets this season and is breached more times than they would like.
With Romelu lukaku in the kind of form he is, it’s hard to see them keeping a clean sheet in this one, the last meeting between these two teams ended 5-0 in favor of Internazionale. Many fans of Genoa must be hoping there isn’t a repeat of that score line this time around. Top goal scorer, Christian Kouame remains out for the rest of the season, Pandev will serve out his suspension this match while Zapata, Lerager are out with injuries.
Predicted Genoa XI: Radu; Biraschi, Romero, Criscito; Ghiglione, Cassata, Radovanovic, Pajac; Schone; Pinamonti, Sanabria
