After an important and hard fought Derby D’Italia win, Inter are now on a mission to collect all points as they host Hellas Verona in San Siro. Match today Saturday at 18:00 CET.

If there was ever a match to re-ignite Inter’s self belief and confidence, it would be a win against arch rivals Juventus in Turin.

With the three points in the bag, the reigning champions now look at the final stretch knowing full well that a defence of their title is back on the books.

But first, Inter must navigate a tricky home match against Igor Tudor’s high-flying Hellas Verona. Hellas have been in fine form almost all season long and are now looking at European football qualification for next season.

They have the same scoring record as both AC Milan and Napoli so far this season, and in Gio Simeone they have the league’s third highest scorer on their roster.

That said, Inter generally seem to do well against teams that like to come at them rather than sit deep and defend.

With the defensive trio of Stefan DeVrij, Milan Skriniar and Alessandro Bastoni starting at the back and hopefully fully fit and in form, Simone Inzaghi has a strong base to build on.

Furthermore, Inter’s central midfield trio of Hakan Calhanoglu, Marcelo Brozovic and Nicolo Barella are also fully fit and ready to start, this is reminiscent of the sort of form the side was in towards the end of 2021 when Inter were on a rampage.

If the squad has finally put it’s fitness issues behind it, and can build on the psychological gains of the Juve win, expect Inter to win here and then hopefully to finally build a winning streak.

Team News

With no injury or fitness issues to contend with, Inzaghi only needs to account for Lautaro Martinez’s single match suspension when making his squad selection.

Probable Line-up (3-5-2): Handanovic (C); Skriniar, DeVrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Brozovic, Perisic; Correa, Dzeko.

Stats

Last Season: Inter 1 – 0 Verona.

Last 10 Head to Head: It’s total dominance for Inter against the Versonese, with seven wins to none by the visitors. Inter have not dropped points against Hellas in Milan since 2014.

Keep An Eye On:

Joaquin Correa: The Argentine forward has flattered to deceive so far this season. Injury and fitness problems have plagued his debut season.

But with Lautaro injured and Inter facing a porous defence, this might finally be Correa’s chance to make an impact on this season.

Officials

Referee: Livio Marinelli.
Assistants: Rossi and Liberti.
Fourth Official: Massimi.
VAR: Aureliano and Cecconi.

Prediction & Concluding Remarks

Prediction & scorers: Inter 2 – 0 With a Dzeko and Calha to put the pressure back on Milan.

Concluding remarks: Verona are a strong attacking side, but have a leaky defence, expect a bolstered Inter back-line to be too much for the Veronese attack, and Inter to finally put some open play chances away.
