INTERMILLAN VS ROMA.
Olivier Giroud’s double condemned Inter to just their second league defeat of the season on Saturday, blowing open the race for the Scudetto. That defeat was just Inter’s fourth in all competitions this season, but they’ve proven adept at bouncing back on the previous occasions they’ve tasted defeat, responding with 6-1, 3-1, and 4-0 home wins after each of their reverses under Simone Inzaghi.
The Nerazzurri have not won the Coppa Italia since 2011, and will be desperate to bounce back again against former boss Jose Mourinho, in this week’s cup quarter-finals. Inter have been able to rely on a fantastic home record under Inzaghi; only Milan, Atalanta, Juventus, and Real Madrid have avoided defeat to Inter at San Siro in their 17 competitive home matches this season.
Roma, meanwhile, have not won Italy’s domestic cup since 2008, when they defeated Roberto Mancini’s Inter in the final on home turf. Not many teams have enjoyed their trips to San Siro this term, and this one looks particularly ill-timed for Mourinho’s men. Roma have lost six and won five of their 11 away league games this season, and were held to a frustrating stalemate by struggling Genoa last time out, with a late disallowed goal leaving the special one seething.
Prediction:Intermillan to win.
