Where: Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, ItalyWhen: Saturday, January 6, 1:30 pm CET
The Nerazzurri lead the way in the Italian Serie A and are the biggest favorites to win the Scudetto. On the other hand, Verona’s goal this year is to stay away from the relegation zone, and right now, their situation isn’t looking bright at all. Inter is a massive favorite in this event, and everyone expects to see Inzaghi’s unit ending on the winning side of this contest.
Inter Milan vs. Verona Preview
The holidays came in handy for Inter, who was beginning to slow down in the second part of December. They had a few unexpected displays, like the one against Bologna in the Italian Cup, where they got eliminated, or the one versus Genoa on the road, 1-1.
Still, Simone Inzaghi’s crew managed to keep itself atop of the Serie A standings, with two points more than Juventus, against whom they played in Turin and stayed unbeaten, 1-1, which is a big plus ahead of the remaining part of the campaign.
Inter is very strong at home this year, and their performances in Serie A are quite confident. After nine appearances, the team from Milan has seven wins, one tie and one loss, with 23 goals scored (the most in the league) and five conceded (second-best).
Only one win in the last 17 contests made Hellas look like one of the weakest, if not the weakest, team in Serie A. They would defeat Cagliari at home on December 23, 2-0, and that’s the only success this unit had since the start of September, which is a terrible record, regardless of the results and everything else.
In a vast majority of the matches during this negative stretch, Verona couldn’t score a single goal, and it appears that the poor offense is the key to their terrible results lately. Only 15 goals this year in 18 Serie A events is the second-worst productivity in the league.
Verona has only one win on the road in the domestic championship, with two ties and six defeats, which totals up to five points. There are three teams who are worse in this category than Hellas, but we are pretty sure none are in worse form.
