Inter Milan – Benevento
Serie A title contenders Inter Milan host Benevento at the San Siro in a fixture from the 20th round of the league. Are you ready to take a look at it in this preview?
The Nerazzurri are currently second in the Serie A standings and they are just two points behind the current leader AC Milan. Antonio Conte’s team will try to find consistency again after winning just two of their last five matches in the Calcio.
In the previous round Inter made a dissapointing 0-0 draw during their visit to Udinese at the Dacia Arena. Now they would have been even with Milan at top if they had win this. In the second half Conte put Perisic, Alexis and Sensi on the pitch, but Udinese’s defense did not allow any penetration.
During the week Inter had some good emotions, though. The Nerazzurri progressed in the Coppa Italia after a 2-1 win over their biggest local rivals AC Milan. The Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen was the hero of the game with a winning goal in the 97th minute.
Benevento are doing really well since their promotion from the Serie B. Managed by the legendary Filippo Inzaghi, Benevento are currently 11th in the standings with 22 points. They are doing much better than all the pundits expected. We really thought they will be fighting for survival.
In their last game Benevento made a draw as well. Inzaghi’s boys faced Torino at the Stadio Ciro Vigorito and got a point with a 2-2 draw. Benito Viola and Gianluca Lapadula gave the Witches a really good advantage, but Simone Zaza equalised with two goals for the visitors.
That’s the preview of the Serie A game between Inter Milan and Benevento on Saturday. The Nerazzurri will try to move closer to the top and this is a good chance for them to do it. Let’s see.
