Inter Milan vs Roma
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 20th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) (Milan).
Inter is in possession of a Champions League spot and going forward, this will be one of the sternest challenges they have to wade through. They do have a five-point lead over the next-placed AC Milan, but Gennaro Gattuso’s side is pitted against Parma and is almost sure of the three points. This results to – if Inter bottles this tie, they are needlessly putting themselves under unwanted pressure.
Roma is placed fifth in the table and can boast of the first Europe League position, but Champions League entry is just a point away, and for the semi-finalists of last season, nothing would be enough but the fourth spot or higher.

Inter Milan vs Roma Prediction
Inter was unbeaten in 17 of their last 20 home ties, and in 19 of their last 24 overall fixtures. Roma, on the other hand, was winless in five of their last eight and lost three of their last four away ties. In h2h meetings, Inter managed to register three of the last five overall wins, and seven of the last eleven at this venue.
With their home advantage, and the chance to put some distance against a rival for the European spots, Inter should be able to dole out a win in at least one of the halves.
But Roma will not make it easy. They are a group of warriors. After their disheartening exit in the Champions League, they will be particular to make it to the next edition. And right now, they are just one point away from it. Count on them to give the toughest of fights for CL entry. Moreover, the last six h2h games, eight of the last nine, and 17 of the last 23 at this venue had both teams on the scorecard. In line with the trend, expect both sides to net goals.
