Inter Milan will wrap up the Serie A season this weekend with a visit to Stadio Olimpico di Torino to face Torino.
The hosts ended their away Serie A campaign with a scintillating 4-0 win over Spezia last Saturday.
Although the victory was soiled by racist abuse directed towards their coach Ivan Jurić with play even halted before half-time, they will still be happy that they were able to win their fourth straight away league match without conceding in a single top-flight campaign for the first time since 1942/43.
However, Il Toro is surprisingly amid a six-game winless run at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (D3, L3). It’s, therefore, unsurprising that their relatively poor home form has been behind their failure to break into the top seven this season.
The hosts might therefore have to improve on their starts if they want to end their season on a high, as five of their last six home matches saw them concede the opening goal, with three conceded within the first ten minutes.
Meanwhile, Inter Milan will travel to Turin in a confident mood after a 3-2 win over Atalanta confirmed they’ll finish in the Serie A top four.
That win also extended their imperious form, as it was their tenth victory in eleven matches (L1). That run was part of what landed the Nerazzurri the Coppa Italia Cup win and a place in the UEFA Champions League final against Manchester City.
With that huge occasion in Istanbul looming, coach Simone Inzaghi hinted at squad rotation after speaking about his staff doing “well in managing the playing time” after the win against Atalanta.
Meanwhile, they have a chance to extend a seven-game unbeaten H2H run (W6, D1) and also end their league campaign on a high.
Inter have won their last six league season finales averaging 3.33 goals per game, and a repeat could make it an entertaining trip for the fans. An over 2.5 goals game is, therefore, likely.
