Inter Milan vs SPAL: Preview and Predictions
Antonio Conte’s side have taken 34 points from their 13 league matches this season to sit second in the Serie A table, just one point off the leaders and reigning champions Juve.
Inter will enter the match off the back of a 3-1 win at Slavia Prague in the Champions League on Wednesday night, which kept them firmly in the running to qualify for the last-16 stage of the competition.
The Milan giants have been victorious in each of their last four in the league, meanwhile, including an impressive 3-0 victory away to Torino last weekend.
SPAL seems like they just can’t catch a break. After playing against three fellow relegation “partners” in a row, they have nothing to show for it. A game against Inter is a Mission Impossible, as it stands.
Semplicci’s men are currently second-to-last in Serie A. Two wins, three draws and an abysmal eight defeats. And things aren’t looking any better ahead of this game.
Inter will once again be without the services of on-loan Manchester United attacker Alexis Sanchez due to an ankle injury, while Nicolo Barella is also unavailable due to a knee problem.
Kwadwo Asamoah could return to the squad following a spell on the sidelines, although Stefano Sensi continues to struggle with an abductor issue, leaving Conte short of options in midfield.
Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez have developed an impressive partnership in the final third this season, and the pair will again start as the front two in a 3-5-2 formation this weekend.
Sassuolo will be without Missiroli who is Suspended,. D’Alessandro, Fares and Di Francesco are all Injured. While Espeto and Moncini are doubts
