Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sunday’s football game between Inter and Frosinone will close round 12 of the new Serie A campaign. The Nerazzurri aim to retain top position in the standings and seeing that Juventus are breathing down their neck, we are positive that the league leaders will go all guns blazing at the Canarini. A man to watch in the home team will be Lautaro Martinez, who has already scored 12 goals in the national championship this term, whereas Benjamin Pavard has joined Juan Cuadrado in the recovery room.
Frosinone, meanwhile, recorded a very important 2-1 win over Empoli on Monday, but Inter are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the visiting team than their previous rivals. In their last encounter in Milano Inter rolled over Frosinone 3-0 and we predict that history is going to repeat itself. Both Abdou Harroui and Sergio Kalaj miss out with injuries, while Francesco Gelli is a major doubt.
Highlighted Player (Hakan Calhanoglu):
Hakan Calhanoglu is another one in the long line of Turkish footballers who were born in Germany, so it is hardly surprising he came to prominence thanks to his performances in Bundesliga. The attacking midfielder with great vision and very good goalscoring record started his professional career at Karlsruher, scoring impressive 17 goals in 50 league outings to earn a move to Bundesliga side Hamburg.
The spell at Imtech Arena was merely a stepping stone for bigger things as 11 goals in his debut top flight campaign persuaded Bayer Leverkusen to splash nearly €15 million on his services. That proved a very good investment as Calhanoglu continued the rich vein of form, and it is now a matter of time before he joins one of European powerhouses.
The midfield maestro had a bright start to his career in the Turkey national team, scoring 5 goals in first 16 caps, and chances are he will become a leader for Milli Takim in the foreseeable future.
Highlighted Team (Frosinone):
Back in 1912 Frosinone were founded as Unione Sportiva Frusinate and it has to be noted that the colors of the team were originally red and blue. They were later changed to the current yellow and blue and the Canarini have been wearing those kits ever since. Frosinone made their first ever appearance in the Serie A in the 2015/2016 season, but they failed to secure the promotion.
The Canarini finished the season in 19th place in the standings, eight points behind Udinese, who eventually avoided relegation to Serie B. However, two years later Frosinone returned to the Italian top flight as they defeated Palermo 3-2 on aggregate in the play-offs final.
The club play their home games at Stadio Benito Stirpe, the stadium that was opened in 2017. The venue can hold 16,227 spectators and it is owned by the Municipality of Frosinone. The construction cost €20 million.
