Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
The central match of the 26th round of the Italian Serie A will be held between Inter, Milan and Roma. And now it is very interesting that beside the historical aspect of the battle of two grands, this match has very crucial significance for both teams of Stefano Pioli and Luciano Spalletti.
THREE APPLICANTS FOR TWO TOURNAMENT TICKETS
Five years ago before the start of Polish-Ukrainian EURO-2012, the elite League of the Italian football has lost its third line in the club ranking of UEFA. Since then the country of Gianni Rivera, Luigi Riva and Roberto Baggio is represented in the Champions League only by three teams:
Juventus – 63, Roma – 56, Napoli – 54, Inter – 48, Atalanta – 48 …
Juventus is practically untouchable now and the last such predictable victory during the match with Porto (0:2). Now nothing can stop the team.
That is why all the teams have to do is to fight for winning places. But the hosts of the future match at San Siro in case they win are becoming the active participants of the battle of three teams for two tournament tickets to the next UEFA main tournament battle.
Roma came to San Siro without injured Alessandro Florenzi that is in their usual squad. But Inter has suffered two great losses – central defender Miranda (disqualification) and holding midfielder Marcelo Brozović.
During 5 last matches at San Siro Roma has twice won over Inter:
17th of September 2011 – 0:0;
2nd of September 2012 – 1:3 (Cassano- Florenzi, Osvaldo, Marquinho);
5th of October 2013 – 0:3 (Totti 2, Florenzi);
25th of April 2015 - 2:1 (Hernanes, Icardi- Nainggolan);
31st of October 2015 – 1:0 (Medel).
So, what is going on this time? The team of Luciano Spalletti will be pleased with the goalless draw. In this case the 8 points distance between Roma and Inter will be untouched and one of the rival can be forgotten.
But Inter needs the winning desperately. So, whom to choose? We prefer the happy medium…
