Serie A football is back and as is the case with plenty of other leagues across Europe, they’ve got a lot of catching up to do after the winter break. Italian football, in a lot of ways, is starting to make a real comeback in terms of its prestige – and it’ll be interesting to see if they can maintain that momentum. Today, we take a look at the upcoming battle between Monza and Inter Milan this weekend.

Monza

After bouncing up to the top flight last season, Monza have done a solid job of trying to cement themselves as regulars. The bottom three have underperformed so dramatically that it’s made their job, in a lot of ways, a bit easier. Alas, it’s never over until it’s over with a relegation battle, and they need to believe they can win games like this if they’re going to vault away from danger before the final run-in.

Team News

Sensi has been ruled out of this one due to an ankle injury with the hosts also expecting Rovella to be out of action.

Inter Milan

While they may have slightly fallen off of the pace in the first half of the campaign, Inter Milan are still one of the best sides in Italy. They have a solid squad, a manager who isn’t afraid to take risks, and a fanbase that knows how good this team can be once they start to get the ball rolling. The big question, of course, is whether or not they’ll be able to do it consistently enough to make a difference in the title race.

Team News

Martinez and Dzeko will battle it out alongside Lukaku to start up top. Elsewhere, Brozovic’s calf strain is expected to keep him out.

Factors to Consider

  • Inter are 4th in Serie A whereas Monza are 15th.
  • Monza have won two, drawn one and lost three of their last six games.
  • Inter have won five and drawn one of their last six games.
  • Monza have scored eight goals and conceded eight in their last six games.
  • Inter have scored 15 goals and conceded two in their last six games.

Conclusion

Monza will serve as stiff opposition as they always tend to do, given that they’re quite a free-flowing side both in the attacking and defensive department. Alas, Inter always seem to find a way to get over humps like this, and that’ll be especially true given their current position in the table. We predict a 2-1 victory for the former champions with Monza struggling to really keep them at bay.
