Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Following a 2-2 draw with Monza, Inter will look to keep their Scudetto hopes alive when they host Verona to their Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Saturday evening. The Nerazzurri did well to beat league leaders Napoli in their last home game, which is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Verona. Romelu Lukaku got injured again, while both Samir Handanovic and Marcelo Brozovic are out of contention.
Meanwhile, the Mastini desperately needed a win against Cremonese, and they managed to get one thanks to Darko Lazovic’s brace. Verona, though, produce much better showings in the “City of Love” than on the travels, which is the main reason why home win should be considered. All Faraoni, Cortinovis, Praszelik, and Verdi are injured for the away team ahead of the trip to Milano, where they suffered a 2-0 loss last time out.
