Our match prediction:
Inter still keep their Champions League dream alive with a triumph over Udinese (3-1). Stevan Jovetic’s brace and Eder’s goal in the dying moments of the match did the job for Roberto Mancini’s charges, narrowing Roma’s advantage to only four points. However, Mancini expects a strong finish of the season, regardless of the final position in the table and wants all three points in Rome against his former club. Simone Inzaghi’s men recorded back-to-back defeats against Juventus and Sampdoria and they definitively lost all chances for a European spot, but they will try to repeat the success from the reverse fixture. I Biancocelesti have been blowing hot and cold on home soil of late, while i Nerazzurri won three of their last four matches, and are in desperate need of points, which is why we will back the visitors in the upcoming encounter, while we do not predict a spectacle for the fans.
Highlighted Team (Lazio Roma):
