Former Inter and Torino defender Fabio Galante has said that he will be cheering for Inter on Sunday night, according to a report in the Italian print media today.
Speaking during an interview with Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, Fabio Galante said that given Inter’s need for three points in the Scudetto fight, he wants them to win the game in Turin on Sunday night.
“I tend to always cheer for the underdog. On Sunday, however, given that Inter will need three points to fuel the Scudetto goal, I will cheer for the Nerazzurri.”
In terms of how the game will pan out, Fabio Galante expects it to be very tough for both teams. He feels that Inter are still the favourites to win the Scudetto in May.
“The match promises to be difficult for both of them: Inter, after being eliminated this week from the Champions League, will focus everything on the championship and will try to repeat last year’s triumph.
“The Nerazzurri have not yet played the match with Bologna which could bring them back to the top of the table, but in Turin they will have to be careful.
“Inzaghi’s team must regain the polish they have recently shown they have lost. If I had to say three months ago I would have had no doubts about the outcome of this game, but now it’s different.
“Inter, however, is still the league favourite for me despite the fact that Milan and Napoli have shown that they are close.”
When asked who on the pitch he thinks will be decisive, Fabio Galante pinpointed Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez for the Nerazzurri.
“For Inter I’d say Dzeko and Lautaro, they both scored goals against Salernitana, but also Barella with the runs forward he makes.”
Taking stock of the various battles around the pitch Fabio Galante had a tip for Torino defender Gleison Bremer who will be up against Edin Dzeko.
“Between Bremer and Dzeko it will certainly be a physical clash. We have seen how perfect the defender was in defusing Vlahovic in the derby.
“I want to give him a tip for Sunday: he will have to limit physical contact with Dzeko to a minimum, preventing him from turning around. With a player like him, the Bosnian will need to play in advance.
“Brozovic will be the lighthouse of Inter’s game. In this sense, Juric could opt for a man-marking of Pobega, as Napoli had done in the past using Zielinski.”
Gleison Bremer has been linked with a move to Inter in the summer and Fabio Galante says that he can imagine him playing for the Nerazzurri.
“He is confident, plays the ball well and fights with his opponents. I consider him a complete defender, and for his age in my opinion he is ready for a great move.
“I can see him at Inter next season, but not only Inter: one performance after another has earned him the chance to play in the defences of the strongest teams in Europe.”
