Our football match prediction:
Inter suffered yet another disappointing defeat in the Europa League in midweek. The Nerazzurri dropped a two-goal advantage in the game against Hapoel Be’er Sheva and they eventually suffered a 3-2 loss to the Israeli outfit at Yaakov Turner Toto Stadium. Inter failed to make it to the Europa League knockout stages and, on the other hand, they played out a 2-2 draw with their bitter rivals Milan in the Derby della Madonnina at the weekend. Unlike Inter, Fiorentina booked their place in the Europa League last 32 and it has to be noted that coach Paulo Sousa rested his first-team regulars in a 2-1 loss to PAOK. The Viola rolled over Empoli (4-0) in their last league fixture and, taking everything into account, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza clash. Josip Ilicic scored a brace against Empoli, meaning that the opposition back-line should have him at bay.
Highlighted Player (Murillo):
Jeison Murillo is a 24-year-old Colombian defender who plays for Inter Milan in Serie A. The centre back started in the youth teams of Deportivo Cali but made his senior professional bow with Udinese and Granada, as part of the partnership agreement between the clubs. He moved on a permanent basis to Granada in 2011 but spent most of his time on loans at fellow Spanish league clubs Cadiz and Las Palmas. His talent was there for everyone to see and soon he would end up moving to Inter Milan in 2015. Murillo made his international debut for Colombia in 2014. He was also a member of the 2015 Copa America squad and scored his solitary goal in national colors against Brazil. He would go on to win the “Best Young Player” of the tournament. Murillo is a hard-tackling no-nonsense centre back and is regarded as a ball-playing defender, which is almost a rarity in world football.
