Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Giuseppe Meazza will host Saturday’s Serie A game between Inter and Torino. The Nerazzurri suffered a heart-breaking loss in the Derby della Madonnina, but they are still seen as favourites to beat Il Toro in front of home fans. Romelu Lukaku is a major doubt, while both Dalbert and Gabriel Brazao are sidelined with injuries. Torino have been producing fine displays in the new domestic campaign, but given their three-game losing run at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Milano.
Key attacker Andrea Belotti is no longer part of the team, while all Etrit Berisha, Samuele Ricci, Stephane Singo, and Alexey Miranchuk should miss out through injuries for the visiting side. In their last meeting at the venue Inter defeated Torino thanks to Denzel Dumfries’ goal, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
