Inter vs AS Roma Match Preview
This will be the biggest match of the weekend in Serie A, as Inter Milan and AS Roma will clash in the race to be in the Champions League qualification places. With a very tight battle for the four positions, this Inter Milan vs AS Roma fixture could well determine how the race to the top-four pans out for the rest of the season, so check out our Inter vs AS Roma prediction and betting tips.
It wasn’t long ago that Inter Milan were top of the Serie A table. A poor run of matches has seen them drop down the table and after 20 games, the hosts are third in the table (42pts, W12, D6, L2). Before this round of fixtures, the hosts are nine points behind the leaders Napoli and it is safe to say that they are out of the title race. The challenge now is to stay in the top four with Lazio and Roma breathing down their neck – two and three points behind them, having played a game lesser. The worry for the hosts is that they have lost their early season momentum and are winless in their last five matches (D2, L3) in all competitions, leading to this Inter Milan vs AS Roma encounter.
Roma find themselves fifth in the table, ahead of this encounter after having played 19 games (39pts, W12, D3, L4). They too were in the title mix not too long ago, but just like Inter, Roma too fell down the perch. They have picked up three losses in their last four games (D1, L3) in all competitions. A win will help them get level on points with Inter and with a game in hand, that will be a major boost to their hopes of finishing in the top four places. This Inter Milan vs AS Roma fixture will also have a footnote as the current Inter manager Luciano Spalletti had a successful stint with Roma until last season.

Inter Milan vs AS Roma Prediction
It is tough to pick a winner in this fixture simply because both the sides have been struggling in the recent matches. It would be a great injustice to either the sides if one of the side wins, because neither of the sides is good enough on current form! However, we feel that Inter may edge out slightly considering the importance this fixture has for its manager. Don’t be surprised if it ends in a stalemate.
