Spal is welcoming Inter to Stadio Paolo Mazza in round 33 in Italian Serie A.
Spal is the weak team, probably the weakest in Serie A, and after just a few games as the newcomer to Serie A, it was clear that Spal will not have a good time this season. With only 19 points this season, Spal is in the last place in the standings, and they will, unfortunately, get relegated to Serie B. With only 23 scored goals so far, Spal is the weakest offensive team in the league, by far. Even though their defense is bad, it’s not the worst in Serie A, and Spal has conceded 58 goals in 32 games. Spal has 5 losses and 1 draw since the Serie A restart, and they are still waiting for their first win. During this stretch, Spal has conceded 14 goals, while scoring only 3 goals. In their last Serie A game against Genoa on the road, Spal has had 45% of ball possession, 2 corner kicks, 72% of accurate passes, and 0 shots on goal. Spal has lost this game 2-0. Petagna is Spal’s leading goal scorer with 12 goals, while Dabo added 3 assists. Berisha, Fares, Valoti, and Zukanovic are all injure and will not be playing in this game. Spal has 5 wins this season, but they simply lack the quality to be more competitive, there isn’t much to say about this team. I think it’s better for Spal to go back to Serie B.
Inter is in third place in the standings with 68 points, 2 points behind Atalanta, but Inter also has a game less. There is still hope for Inter to catch up to Juventus at the top, but they can’t afford to gamble away any more points. With 68 scored goals, Inter is the second-best offensive team in Serie A, while their defense has been decent with 34 conceded goals. Lukaku is Inter’s top goalscorer with 20 goals, while Martinez added 13 goals. Antonio Candreva has added 7 assists. Sensi and Barella are injured, while Godin is suspended because of the yellow cards. Inter has 4 wins, 2 draws, and 1 loss since the restart and all those dropped points have cost Inter in the title race. In their last 7 games in Serie A, Inter has scored massive 19 goals, but they also conceded at least 1 goal in 6 of their last 7 games, 10 goals in total. In their latest game against Torino at home, Inter was dominant with 60% of ball possession, massive 10 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, and high 89% of the correct passes. Inter was struggling in the first half, but it was like a different team came to the field in the second half and Inter has won this match 3-1. Inter still has a few tough games until the end of the season, but they have the depth and the quality to overcome every obstacle put in front of them.
In 5 games Spal and Inter have played against each other, Inter has won 4, while one game ended in a draw. Spal is in a terrible form, and there is nothing else to think about here. I will pick Inter.
