Inter is welcoming Spezia to Giuseppe Meazza in round 15 of the Italian Serie A. Inter is on fire lately, and they have caught up to Milan and Napoli at the top of Serie a. Spezia is on the verge of the relegation zone, they are not coring a lot, and they are conceding a ton of goals.
Inter is undefeated in their last 8 games while winning their last 3 games during which they scored 7 goals while conceding only 2. As far as the Champions League goes, Inter has secured their spot in the next round, but they could still get to the top spot if they beat Real Madrid in the last round. As far as Serie A goes, Inter is now in 3rd place with 31 points, 34 scored goals, and 15 conceded goals. Dzeko and Martinez are the leading goalscorers for Inter with 7 goals each. Inter was playing against Venezia just a few days ago, and they were the better team with 56% of ball possession, 12 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a high 90% of the correct passes. This wasn’t a particularly hard game for Inter, and they probably should have scored another goal or two, but even a 0-2 win is a nice win. Inter seems unbeatable right now, and I feel sorry for the team who must face them on the pitch.
Spezia is not playing well, they haven’t been playing well at all this season. and they have won only 1 of their last 6 games. During this period, Spezia has scored only 5 goals while conceding 9 goals. At the moment, Spezia is safe in 17th place with 11 points, but they are only 1 point above the relegation zone. With 32 conceded goals, Spezia is the weakest defensive team in the league, and unless they fix that, they will find themselves in Serie B next season. In their last game, Spezia was hosting Bologna, and they have had 43% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and only 79% of the correct passes. This wasn’t a great game from Spezia, but they haven’t been great at all this season so I’m not sure what they are expecting. Spezia has conceded a late penalty kick in the 83rd minute, and a goal from it. The final score was 0-1 in favor of Bologna. Verde has scored 3 goals for Spezia, and he is their leading goalscorer. The good news is there are no injuries in Spezia, the bad news is they still suck.
These two teams have met only twice in the past and Inter has won 1 game, while the second game ended in a draw. There is a lot to fix in Spezia, while Inter is pretty much a settled team right now, and they will get the win in this one.
