Inter Milan vs Hellas VeronaSerie A, KO: 14:00 Apr 25, 2021, San Siro
League leaders Inter Milan are looking to overcome a mini slump as they welcome Hellas Verona to the San Siro for an Italian Serie A fixture. The visitors have struggled in recent weeks and should be no match for the table toppers.
Inter Milan were held to a 1-1 draw by Spezia last time out in Serie A. They fought back from a goal down with Ivan Perisic grabbing the equaliser six minutes before the break.
It was the second straight draw for Antonio Conte’s men, who were also held 1-1 by Napoli in their previous fixture. However, with local rivals AC Milan failing to capitalise on their slip ups, they remain 10 points clear at the top of the table.
Despite their recent struggles, Inter Milan’s home form remains impeccable as they are currently on a 12-match winning run at the San Siro. They have also maintained a solid defensive record on their own turf with five clean sheets in their last seven home matches.
Hellas Verona suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Fiorentina in their previous Serie A fixture. They fell two goals down before Eddie Salcedo scored a consolation midway through the second half.
Ivan Juric's men have been on a steady decline in recent weeks and have now dropped to 10th on the table. They travel to the San Siro with six defeats from their last seven Serie A matches.
Verona also struggle on their travels and have lost two of their last three away matches, including a 3-1 defeat to Sampdoria in their previous fixture on the road.
