Inter and Roma are set to battle it out on Serie A Matchday No 36, just several days after bagging five goals apiece in their previous round fixtures.
Mid-week’s tie at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza will by no means change the two teams’ fortunes, regardless of its outcome.
Inter are the new Serie A champions and we have already known it for more than a week. They celebrated their first Scudetto title in eleven years with a demolishing 5-1 victory over Sampdoria on Saturday.
Although Antonio Conte mixed up his starting XI leaving the likes of Matteo Darmian, Milan Skriniar, and Romelu Lukaku on the bench, I Nerazzurri bagged five goals past the struggling opposition on the occasion.
Alexis Sanchez took advantage of an opportunity to get the nod alongside Lautaro Martinez in the final third. The Chilean forward bagged a brace in a festive atmosphere at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Roma bounced back from a 6-2 catastrophe at the Old Trafford by clinching back-to-back wins in the last two games.
They improved the impression with a strong attacking showing in the reverse fixture of the UEFA Europa League tie against Manchester United just three days before bagging five goals in the demolition of the rock-bottomed Crotone at Stadio Olimpico.
However, it was the first win in five Serie A outings for Roma who almost have nothing but pride to play for in the remaining three rounds.
Inter Milan vs Roma Head-to-head
- The draw has been by far the most common outcome in the most recent history of this match-up.
- None of the last six head to head games between these two outfits has produced a winner.
- The teams shared spoils in back-to-back 2-2 draws in their past two meetings.
- Roma won just 8 of the last 39 away games against Inter.
Inter Milan vs Roma Prediction
Since both managers should rotate heavily for this match (in the lack of proper imperative), we can hardly recognize the value in backing the home win at the odds of 1.65. Instead, we will rather go for goals and back the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score pick at the 1.83 odds.
We will also take the 2.75 odds offered for the Romans to net two or more goals on Wednesday, knowing they’ve bagged as many as eight in the last two outings.
