More than 2,000 Roma fans are set to travel to Milan next Sunday evening for a hotly anticipated clash between Inter and the Giallorossi at San Siro.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza is likely to be full once again as the Nerazzurri host another of Serie A’s big teams. There are no territorial limitations, as is the case when Roma play Napoli for example, and so it looks as though another crucial game for Inter will be played in front of a capacity crowd.

The game is likely to be sold out, with over 50,000 tickets already sold. In fact, sales have almost reached the 60,000 mark and there is still more than a week to go.

So far this season, Inter have averaged the highest crowds in Serie A by quite some considerable margin. At least 50,000 fans have watched Inter play at home, while nearest challengers Juventus average around 39,000 at the Allianz Stadium.

    While it’s nice that our average is higher, you also have to take into account Rube’s stadium capacity is only 41000, while the San Siro is 80000. With an average of 39000 their home games are usually 90% packed. While our average is 50000 so about 60%.

    Inter definitely needs its own stadium, but only in the 60000-70000 range. And there needs to be solid investment in the area where the stadium is as well, like shopping malls and restaurants. Though I love the San Siro and cried tears of joy at my first home game, the stadium and that area of Milan isn’t the greatest. There’s not really much to do around the stadium.

    50.000 compare to 39.000 is a huge margin.
    Even rube has his own stadium, their average crowds it not higher than us. This is interesting.
    With this highest crowd number, Suning must invest in building our own stadium in near future for the sake of making profit on his business and the good of INTER. Don’t think you have an excuse to not invest in building new stadium.

      Well we definitely need one..but where? We need land to get one..that’s why initially Milan was supposed to leave but with their current situation (questions of money laundering among others) they can’t leave and we’re stuck with them for at least 2-3 seasons that id assuming suning even wants us to leave the Giuseppe Meazza :/
