Roma vs Inter, Match preview

Inter will be on the road against Sampdoria in the league before the game against Roma. Last week, Inter beat Crotone 6-2 at the Giuseppe Meazza. Lautaro Martinez scored his first Inter hat-trick, while Crotone’s Luca Marrone suffered the ignominy of scoring an own goal. Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku and new signing Achraf Hakimi also got in on the act with second-half goals to seal the game. Niccolo Zanellato’s goal and a penalty from Vladimir Golemic proved to be consolation for the visitors.

The win keeps Inter at second place, one point behind cross-town rivals AC Milan, who are still unbeaten in the league. Inter will hope for strong performances against Sampdoria and Roma on the road to overtake Milan. The Nerazurri earlier were humiliated in the group stages of the Champions League, finish bottom in a group consisting of Real Madrid, Monchengladbach and Shakhtar Donetsk.

Roma are also in decent form, winning 4 out of their last 5 league matches, barring a 4-1 defeat at Bergamo to Atalanta. Paulo Fonseca will expect a strong showing from his men against an in-form Inter, who are eager to perform well in domestic competitions following a disaster European campaign.
