Inter Milan vs RomaSerie A, KO: 17:00 Apr 23, 2022, San Siro
Inter Milan continue their push for the title as they welcome Roma in Serie A on Saturday. Both teams have been in good form lately but the champions have looked more convincing and should have the edge at the San Siro.
Sitting two points behind AC Milan and having played a game less, Inter Milan have a straightforward route to the Serie A title this season. Victory in their remaining five matches will see them emerge champions for the second straight season.
The Nerazzurri are not just vying for the Serie A title as they are also in the running for the domestic double. Simone Inzaghi’s men are into the final of the Coppa Italia following an impressive 3-0 victory over local rivals AC Milan on Tuesday.
Inter Milan head into Saturday’s clash off the back of four straight wins across all competitions. They claimed a 3-1 victory over Spezia in their previous Serie A fixture with Lautaro Martinez and Alexis Sanchez among the goals.
AS Roma have also been in good form lately. Sitting fifth on the table, five points off the top four, they still have slim hopes of catching Juventus for a Champions League place.
Jose Mourinho’s men travel to Inter Milan off the back of a 1-1 draw at title-chasing Napoli in their previous Serie A fixture. Stephan El Shaarawy struck a late equaliser as they extended their unbeaten run to 12 Serie A matches.
While Roma will be pleased with their good form, they have not been overly convincing on their recent travels. They have claimed just one win in their last three away matches across all competitions but will take confidence from the draw in Naples on Monday.
How the bookies view it
