Inter is hosting Spezia at Giuseppe Meazza in round 13 in the Italian Serie A.
Inter is now on a 6-game streak without a loss, but that wasn’t enough for Inter to advance in the Champions League, but that is now behind them. Inter has won their last 2 Serie A games, and they are no in second place with 27 points, just 1 point behind Milan. With 30 scored goals, Inter is the best offensive team in Serie A this season. in their latest Serie A game a few days ago, Inter was hosting Napoli, and they have had 41% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 88% of the correct passes. This was a tougher game than I expected, but Inter was the luckier team, and they have won this match 1-0 by a goal from the penalty kick. Lukaku has been playing well this season, and he has scored 10 goals for Inter so far, while Martinez added 5 goals. Nicolo Barella has added 4 goals. Vecino, Nainggola, and Sanchez are all injured, while Vidal and Hakimi are still questionable for this game. After that fry spell in Serie A, Inter is back on track, and in the title race, and I have a feeling this season is just getting interesting.
Spezia is having a decent season, but they haven’t won any of their last 4 games while losing 2 of those 4. With 11 points, 17 scored goals, and 25 conceded goals, Spezia is now in 16th place, just 4 points away from the relegation zone. Spezia has scored at least 1 goal in their last 5 games, but they have also conceded at least 1 goal, 12 goals in total. Nzola has scored 6 goals for Spezia at this time, while Gyasi added 3 assists. The injury list for Spezia is long, and Capradossi, Zoet, Galabinov, Sena, Dell’Orco, Mattiello, and Verde are all on that list, while Chabot is suspended because of the yellow cards. Spezia was playing at home against Bologna in their last game, and they have had 44% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and only 67% of the correct passes. After leading 2-0 in the 63rd minute, Spezia has conceded 2 goals, and they conceded a penalty kick in the 97th minute. Fortunately for Spezia, their goalkeeper saved that penalty kick, and this game ended in a 2-2 draw. After a solid start, Spezia has cooled off as of late, and I think this season will just get harder for them.
It’s hard to imagine, but these two teams have never met in the past. Inter is the better team here in every aspect, and they are in much better form. The long injury list will have a huge impact on Spezia, and for that reason, I won’t even think about anything else but Inter here.
