Former Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid fullback Michele Serena previews the decisive clash between his two former employers.

The two sides are embroiled in a double tie in the Champions League Round of 16.

The Nerazzurri emerged with a slim advantage from the first leg at home thanks to Marko Arnautovic’s solitary strike in the 79th minute.

Nevertheless, the decisive second leg will take place in the Spanish capital on Wednesday night.

Therefore, Serena warns Inter of the atmosphere that awaits them at the Metropolitano Stadium.

“It will be a difficult match. I know the Atletico Madrid environment well. It will be a hot atmosphere,” said the 54-year-old in his interview with Tuttoport via FcInterNews.

“In addition to the strength of the Colchoneros, it will be a tough environment.

“However, Inter are used to it and will know how to best approach the match. It will be a real sporting hell, the small advantage from the first leg could be decisive.”

Therefore, Serena expects the Serie A giants to prevail, and the latest football betting tips support his claim.

The Italian underlines the great passion of the Atletico supporters who will play their part this evening. He identifies them as the equivalent of the Torino supporters in Spain.

“Atletico fans experience the matches passionately. They are very attached to their colors, and to their shirt, regardless of the results.

“The fans will try to push the team to a comeback against the Nerazzurri.”

“I would compare them to the fans of Torino in Italy for their great attachment to the jersey.”

Serena expects Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann to play a decisive role on Ateltico’s part, while Inter will rely on their defensive block.

“Since Atletico are chasing the result, I nominate Morata and Griezmann to play an important role.

“In Inter, however, given that the Nerazzurri start from their first-leg advantage, I would say the entire defensive block. So it’s not just the three defenders plus Sommer.”

Nevertheless, the former Inter star highlighted the importance of club captain Lautaro Martinez.

“Lautaro is the captain, the top scorer, the player who has the ability to score goals. He has developed a lot in recent years and acquired more experience.

In conclusion Serena states that “the Argentine has now consolidated himself in the club. He is totally involved and inside the planet called Inter.”
