Inter welcome Torino as the recently crowned Italian champions this weekend. The Nerrazzuri will have a chance to celebrate their 20th championship title with the fans at the Giuseppe Meazza, who will be hoping for another strong performance from their team.

Around 75,000 spectators are anticipated in the stands and many more outside the stadium for the Scudetto winning ceremony. Inter fans will provide an amazing atmosphere testing Torino’s players’ character, with the visitors aiming to rise to the expectations in the 7th place race.

Inter

Simone Inzaghi’s team has dominated the Serie A campaign. Having defeated AC Milan in the Derby della Madonnina, Inter secured the champions’ trophy on Milan’s turf.

The newly crowned champions have only dropped a single game in the Serie A, a shocking home defeat against Sassuolo (1-2). Despite their dominance in Serie A, Inter disappointed in the Champions League this season when they were ousted by Atletico Madrid in the round of sixteen, failing to repeat their incredible run from the previous season when they reached the final.

The Nerrazzuri’s European campaign has been peculiar this term. They have failed to win a single game away from home since the group stage (1-0 against Salzburg), displaying clear limitations on the road. Despite winning the first leg at the Mezza (1-0), they were knocked out at the Wanda Metrolpolitano in a penalty shootout against Atletico Madrid.

Nevertheless, following a tense contest that saw two late eliminations, Inter cleared up all their faults by narrowly defeating Milan in the Seria A at San Siro (1-2). This win added a second star to Inter’s jersey in honour of its 20th championship title. Furthermore, the Nerazzuri overtook Milan in the Scudetto race, currently holding one more championship, with Juventus claiming supremacy with 36 titles.

Denzel Dumfries is suspended following his altercation with Teo Hernandez in the Milan derby. The game got out of hand at the end and the referee needed to send off both players. Juan Cuadrado is expected to return to the squad after missing two games due to muscle fatigue.

Lautaro Martinez is keen to play and score to improve his position in Europe’s Golden Booth race. Although the Argentinian superstar will likely end as the top scorer in Serie A, he is 10 goals behind Harry Kane for the supreme goalscorer title in Europe.

Torino

Torino found themselves in seventh position in the rankings with six points behind Lazio, who presently hold the final Conference League qualifying spot. With six rounds remaining, the players coached by Ivan Juric hope to retain their chances of competing in Europe next season by beating Inter.

In their last seven league games, Torino has only lost once, but the home team failed to impress in that span. Following the decisive victory at Udinese (0–2), Torino narrowly prevailed at home against Monza (1-0). On the other hand, Ivan Juric’s players displayed their limitations upfront scoring a single goal in the four draws that concluded this series of results.

Furthermore, Torino will try to repeat the last successful performance at the Giuseppe Meazza, when today’s visitors shocked Inter fans with a 2-1 win.

Team News

Ivan Juric is facing an injury crisis with several players unable to make the short trip to Milan. Centre backs pair, Perr Schurrs and Koffi Djidji are expected to recover fully and return to action at the beginning of May. Gvidas Gineitis and Saba Sazonov are the latest players added to the injury list following April setbacks.

Key factors to consider

  • Inter is freshly crowned Seria A champions winning their 20th Scudetto Monday night at San Siro where they defeated bitter rivals AC Milan (1-2)
  • The hosts dominated the Italian’s top flight from beginning to end suffering a single defeat so far (1-2 against Sassuolo)
  • Inter narrowly defeated Torino in the last two Meazza displays (1-0)
  • The visitors are mid-table positioned looking for a shocking win against Inter that will keep them in the 7th spot race
  • Torino failed to score in the last two games

Conclusion

Inter will host Torino as the new Serie A champions, looking to start the celebration with a win in front of their fans. Lautaro Martinez will aim to get on the scoreboard following recent below-expectation displays. The Argentina ace is expected to steal the show and score at least a goal in Torino’s net.

Verdict: Lautaro Martinez to score anytime
