SPAL vs Inter Milan
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 7 October 2018
Kick-Off: 19:30 UK,
Venue: Stadio Paolo Mazza (Ferrara).
Things seem to be clicking for Inter as they have won three games on the trot, and in addition to that, the Nerazzurri also emerged victorious in their midweek Champions League fixture. Luciano Spalletti’s side are tied with Barcelona with six points after wins over PSV and Tottenham and have won against Sampdoria, Cagliari, and Fiorentina, making it five straight wins across all competitions.
SPAL, meanwhile have started to slide down the table. That’s not surprising, as they are relative novices to competing in the top flight. SPAL only made their return to the top flight after 50 years last term. After a strong start, Leonardo Semplici’s men have started to struggle, and despite beating Bologna, Parma, and Atalanta, they have lost their last three games and have now fallen into the bottom half of the table.
Things are set to get even tougher with upcoming clashes against Lazio and Roma after the international break, meaning that SPAL could find themselves even lower in the standings, but they will be hoping to arrest this downward trend – although with Inter in strong form that will be easier said than done.
Inter will be facing cross-town rivals AC Milan soon and so want to keep up the great run heading into the international hiatus.

SPAL vs Inter Milan: Prediction
Inter have won their last three away fixtures and are taking on a SPAL side who have lost their last three games. The Nerazzurri will want to make sure they further make sure their position in the Champions League places is secure before the international break, and with Sassuolo facing Napoli this is a great country.
