Inter Milan will be hoping to get back on track in Serie A this weekend, as they play host to Lecce. The visitors will also be desperate for the points, as they attempt to move further clear of the relegation places in Italy’s top flight.
Serie A Preview
Inter Milan’s feint hopes of regaining the Serie A title were almost effectively ended last weekend as they slipped to defeat. The loss means that they are now 18 points off the top of the standings, as they have claimed victory in just one of their previous three matches. Inter remain in the hunt for a Champions League finish this season, but their advantage after last weekend’s defeat now stands at just three points over fifth-placed AS Roma.
Inter were extremely underwhelming in their previous fixture, as they were edged out by Bologna away from home. They managed just four shots on target in that defeat, but the majority of their efforts were registered from outside the box. A response will be expected by the Champions League chasers as they return to action this weekend.
Lecce comes into this fixture sitting 15th in the Serie A standings, and they are ten points clear of the relegation places in the current standings. They have picked up two wins from their previous four matches, and have lost on just a single occasion over that period. However, they will likely need a few more wins before they begin celebrating their survival in the Italian top-flight.
Lecce comes into this fixture after a defeat in their previous fixture, as they were edged out by Sassuolo by a 1-0 scoreline. The hosts were extremely disappointing in that match, as they failed to register a single shot on target.
Inter Milan vs Lecce Head to Head
Inter has lost just once in eight previous Serie A fixtures between the two sides. That defeat was suffered away from home in January 2012. Since then, Inter has gone three without defeat, and were 2-1 winners in the reverse fixture between the sides earlier in the season.
Inter Milan vs Lecce Prediction
Inter Milan was extremely disappointing in their previous fixture, as they fell to defeat. But, we expect a much better performance this weekend, and we would be very surprised if they don’t claim maximum points at the San Siro against Lecce on Sunday.
