Inter Milan will begin play down in fourth place after their poor run of results.
Inter Milan vs Crotone
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 3 February 2018
Kick-Off at 20:45 - Nigerian Time
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (Milano).
They have not won any of their last five matches and have drawn four in a row to give them 44 points, putting them 13 back of leaders Napoli after once being title contenders for a time.

They have just three points over Roma for the final UEFA Champions League slot right now.

Inter's home form has been very good. They have only lost once at the San Siro and have won seven out of the 11 matches. The issues have began of late, though, with two losses and just one point from the last three home games. This run has to stop in order for them to get back on track.

As for Crotone, they are in 17th spot at the moment.

They are on 19 points, putting them just two points above the drop. They have just four points in their last five matches, but they have picked up each of those in the last two games.

Crotone's away record is among the very worst in the league. They have only seven points to show from their efforts, but one of their two wins was in their latest away outing.

TEAM NEWS:

Inter Milan: Manager Luciano Spalletti has no injuries or suspension issues ahead of this tie as they look to turn around their poor recent form. 

Crotone: Coach Walter Zenga is missing young forward Marco Tumminello as well as winger Adrian Stoian due to injury.

TEAM FORMS:

Inter have four draws and a loss in their last five matches.

Crotone have a draw, a win, and three losses in their last five matches.

PREDICTED LINEUPS:  

Inter Milan (4-3-3): Handanovic; D Ambrosio, Skriniar, Miranda, Cancelo; Vecino, Valero, Gagliardini; Candreva, Perisic, Icardi.

Crotone (4-3-3): Cordaz; Sampirisi, Ceccherini, Capuano, Martella; Barberis, Mandragora, Benali; Ricci, Nalini, Trotta.

KEY STATS:
  • This marks just the third time these sides have played.
  • Inter have two wins so far and Crotone has one.

PREDICTION:

Inter 2-0 Crotone —   Since Crotone have been struggling to find goals throughout the entire season, and particularly on travels, I'll go with Nerazzurri to keep a clean sheet.
