Team News

Manchester United

Luciano Spalletti’s can call up a pretty strong squad this weekend with Marcelo Brozovic the only notable absence. Borja Valero is doubtful, but he could still make it too the bench.

Mauro Icardi is set to get that starting role again at Inter after recent controversy. Roberto Gagliardi look to partner Matias Vecino in midfield following Brozovic’s injury.

AS Roma

Claudio Ranieri has more injury problems to think about ahead of this weekend game. Daniele De Rossi, Santon, Juan Jesus and Rick Karsdrp are all injured.

Stephan El Shaarawy could return into action again, although not from the start. Roma will continue to count on Edin Dzeko to lead their attack on Saturday.

Head to Head Records:

Earlier encounter between Inter and Roma happened on December 3, 2018 and ended in a 2-2 draw.

Match Prediction

Inter are looking to continue their recent good run with all three points at home. A win on Saturday can make Nerazzurri looking closer in securing that top four finish.

Giallorossi won’t make it easy for Inter as Roma are also battling for top four finish. This tie looks could go either way, though Inter are slightly favorite because of their home court status.

Final Score: 1-1
