Roma vs Inter MilanSerie A, KO: 17:00 Dec 4, 2021, Stadio Olimpico
Inter Milan travel to Roma for a Serie A fixture on Saturday as they look to maintain their recent resurgence. The capital club have been erratic lately and could find things difficult against the in-form champions.
Roma head into Saturday’s clash off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Bologna in their previous Serie A fixture. They conceded midway through the first half and failed to find a way back into the contest despite several opportunities.
Manager Jose Mourinho will consider the defeat a bitter setback as Roma had looked to be coming out of a slump with wins in their previous two matches. The result also meant that the capital club have now been beaten six times this season and could slip to as low as eighth if results do not go their way this weekend.
Roma have generally looked solid at the Stadio Olimpico this season, although there have been a few cracks in recent weeks. They have claimed just one win from their last three home matches and have already been beaten 2-1 by title challengers AC Milan in front of their fans this season.
Inter Milan appear to have fully got their title defence back on track and are unbeaten in their last seven Serie A matches. They are now just two points behind leaders Napoli and could climb to the top of the standings if results go their way this weekend.
Simone Inzaghi’s men travel to Roma off the back of a 2-0 victory over Spezia in their previous Serie A fixture. Goals in each half from Roberto Gagliardini and Lautaro Martinez were enough to earn them the win.
Inter Milan have also impressed on their travels this season with just one defeat from eight away matches. They have claimed five wins in that run, including a 2-0 victory over Venezia in their previous fixture on the road.
