Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Olimpico will host Sunday’s Serie A derby between Roma and Inter. The Giallorossi have been producing splendid displays ever since they suffered a heavy 4-1 loss to Atalanta, with the team beating the likes of Cagliari, Sampdoria and Crotone in the previous three league fixtures. The capital club have been impressive in front of goal of late, and seeing that Edin Dzeko should be fit to face Inter, we are positive that the hosts will find the net in Sunday’s clash.
Santon, Calafiori, Zaniolo, and Pedro remain in the recovery room, while Mirante is rated doubtful. The Nerazzurri, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Sampdoria, and seeing that they are eager to keep their Scudetto hopes alive, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Vecino, Pinamonti, and D’ambrosio remain on the sidelines with injuries. Fit-again attacker Romelu Lukaku returns to the starting XI.

Nikola Kalinic is a product of Hajduk Split’s youth school. The 187-cm-tall striker scored 32 goals in 59 appearances for Hajduk at senior level and he played for the likes of Pula and Sibenik in Croatia as well. In 2009 he moved to Blackburn Rovers for fee of £6 million.

After making 44 league appearances for Blackburn Rovers, the Croatian attacker joined Dnipro in 2011 and he played for the Ukrainian outfit until 2015.
Kalinic signed a four-year deal with Fiorentina on 15 August, 2015 and he impressed in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign, scoring 12 goals in 36 games. The Fiorentina striker made two appearances for Croatia at the 2016 European Championship in France and it has to be noted that he found the net in a 2-1 win over Spain in the group stages of the competition.
Highlighted Team (Inter):
Internazionale Milano, known as Internazionale, Inter or Inter named Milan, is a football club from Italy, founded on March 9, 1908 by a number of "rebels" who did not like in the regulations of the Milan Cricket and Football Club, now known as AC Milan. The main objection was that no foreign players were allowed. In 1928 the club merged with US Milanese and strongly entered a time when Ambrosiana-Inter survived.
The club, nicknamed the Nerazzurri or the blue / blacks has had many successes. This is how Inter Milan won 18 national titles, seven times the Italian Cup, the UEFA Cup 3x, and 3x times the Champions League, formerly known as the European Cup I.
