Inter Milan – Statistics & Current Form
While Eintracht Frankfurt celebrated perhaps the best possible dress rehearsal for the match on Thursday, this looks quite different with opponents Inter Milan. For the Nerazzurri lost on Matchday 26 Serie A away in relegation candidate Cagliari Calcio 1: 2 and thus lost important points in the fight for the Champions League places. Inter Milan are still in fourth place with three points ahead of Roma, but benefited from Roma’s 3-0 defeat by Lazio in the derby. For Inter Milan, the defeat at Cagliari was the first after five competitive games in a row without defeat, from which the Milan could win four. At the same time confirmed by the fact that Inter Milan away from home again and again has its problems. Inter Milan face a record of eight wins, two draws and only two failures in Serie A at home, as well as Tottenham (2-1), FC Barcelona (1-1) and PSV in the group stage of the Champions League Eindhoven (1: 1) and also in the European Championship quarter-final against Rapid Wien (4: 0) was unbeaten at home, there were already five bankruptcies in league away with six away wins and three draws.
In the Champions League there were away games at Tottenham and in Barcelona and only one victory in Eindhoven. Between mid-November and late December Inter Milan had a phase in which the club could win none of five competitive games on the opponent’s place – three defeats. Although this phase is over, the performances in foreign parts were not really intoxicating. In this respect, Inter will have to put in a lot of effort to play out a good starting position for the second leg of currently winged eagles from Hesse. In addition, the Nerazzurri still burdened the topic of Mauro Icardi. The back and forth of the Argentine superstar and top scorer in his contract poker is eating away at the nerves. In the first leg on Thursday Icardi but probably initially continue to fail. The bookmakers see the Italians in any case behind. In the match of Inter Milan, Frankfurt, the odds for a tip on away win are higher.
Expected formation of Inter Milan:
Handanovic; Soares, Skriniar, Vrij, Asamoah; Brozovic, Vecino, Politano, Nainggolan, Perisic; Martinez
