Inter Milan host Roma at the San Siro on Saturday, kicking off at 8:30pm local time in Italy. It’s a huge game towards the end of the season, with both sides hoping to claim a spot in next year’s Champions League.

Home Team: Inter Milan

Inter Milan are strong favourites to finish in the top four, as they currently occupy 3rd place and are 6 points ahead of their upcoming opponents this weekend.

Inter Milan have been inconsistent for parts of the season, and in particular when captain Mauro Icardi was removed from the squad, due to speculation about his future. However, following a crucial home loss to Lazio, he was re-introduced back into the team, with his captaincy stripped, and their form in the last three matches have improved significantly.

Gaining 7 points, with Icardi getting a goal in the process, has given them some breathing space ahead of the final 6 matches. Current manager Luciano Spalletti will be trying to get a win over his former side he had spent 5 seasons with. Can he get the win that would virtually cement a place in the top four?

Away Team: Roma

Roma manager Claudio Ranieri was brought in following their exit to Porto in the Champions League, and he didn’t get the immediate reaction he was hoping for with two straight defeats to SPAL and Napoli, and then drawing at home to Fiorentina. His return to the club didn’t help Roma’s top four chances that started to look increasingly bleak.

However, in recent weeks, they have been able to achieve two narrow wins, both via a 1-0 score line, and it has lifted the confidence within the team, and has put them in with a genuine chance of obtaining a top four spot.

This is arguably the game of the season for Roma, as a win would give them a real possibility of salvaging a poor campaign, but a defeat could mean they miss out on the top four, and could even lead to a worse scenario where they miss out on European football altogether.

Head to Head

There is nothing between the two sides in recent memory, as the last 10 matches have seen both sides each winning this fixture three times, with the other four matches ending in a draw. In the reverse fixture this season, the game finished 2-2 in an entertaining match that saw Roma twice claw themselves back from a losing position to draw.

In the respective fixture from last season, we saw another draw between the teams, this time ending in 1-1. Roma did win on their visit the season before though, with a fantastic 3-1 victory. Inter Milan last had success against Roma in the San Siro back in 2015, when Gary Medel got the solitary goal of the game.

Inter Milan vs Roma Prediction, Odds and Tips

Inter Milan are at 4/5 favourites to win at home here, with Roma valued at 16/5. For the sides to share the spoils for the 3rd time in a row, is at 11/4. I believe that backing Roma in some capacity provides great value in terms of odds, but my hunch tells me that Inter Milan will get the victory here in a 2-1 win – priced at 13/2.

Both teams have scored in the last six meetings, so backing a result with both teams to score would be a wise thing to do. For example, an Inter Milan win with both teams scoring is at 9/4. Mauro Icardi is the main threat once again for Inter, and he is at 9/5 to score at any time, and for the visitors, Edin Dzeko is at 11/5 to score at any time.
