Inter Milan vs Torino
A quick trip to the San Siro Stadium may be what Inter Milan need as they try to get back on their feet and make a late run in the Serie A table.
The Nerazzurri’s recent Serie A 2020 results haven’t been that promising by their standards, as they drew level against Hellas Verona yesterday and lost to a heated affair against Bologna in just a few days prior.
Their inconsistency has haunted them as of late. As a result, Antonio Conte’s side have dropped down to the fourth spot despite hovering around in the top two for the majority of the 2019/20 term.
With their Serie A 2020 odds for a title now down the drain, what’s left for them is to secure a Champions League spot for next year along with their ongoing Europa League stint.
And you can bet that they’ll vent out their frustrations against a lowly Torino squad who is trying to ensure that they’ll be back in the Serie A roster next season.
These two proud clubs occupy contrasting places at the standings – with Inter having 66 points placing fourth, while Torino are at 15th with 34 points.
While there’s a huge consensus that Inter Milan will cruise for an easy victory, recent history suggests that this might be a tighter affair than expected.
As part of our continuous coverage of the Italian top-flight, here is the match preview by SBOBET.
Inter Milan turn their focus to Europa League
They were once a promising side that is capable of upending Juventus in the title race, but now it is ending painfully on a sour note.
For a time, the Nerazzurri were on top of the table as their dangerous attack have torched so many of their opponents.
They tried replicating their high-scoring form since the restart, but it hasn’t been going as planned so far.
Yes, the scoring was there for Antonio Conte’s men, but so does the opponent’s goals along with the unnecessary bookings.
They were given a red card in three of their last six matches and they’ve conceded nine goals during that period. So far, Inter Milan’s game against Brescia was the mere exception.
Since their title hopes are effectively over, they can now focus on the Europa League as they hunt for another trophy.
They are currently entangled with La Liga’s Getafe in a single knockout format in the second leg of the European showcase. If they advance, Inter might get to face either the Rangers or Bayer Leverkusen.
The Nerazzurri have the quality players that can produce when being called upon, so it’s expected for them to go on a deep run in the Europa League.
Torino avoiding the relegation zone
In stark contrast, Torino are a middling team who is quite in a quagmire.
Although they are seven points clear from the relegation zone, Il Toro cannot afford to let their guard down especially with their horrid form as of late.
Since the restart, Moreno Longo’s men have only won and drew level once, while losing four straight times.
Their defence is the main culprit for their lacklustre play as they’ve conceded 13 goals during their losing streak.
While top striker Andrea Belotti has been doing everything he could for Il Toro, any additional help from guys like Alex Berenguer, Cristian Ansaldi, Simon Zaza, and Kevin Bonifazi will be very much welcome.
Inter Milan and Torino have met each other in 27 matches.
The Nerazzurri own the upper hand in the head-to-heads with 14 wins, while Il Toro only won four times along with nine draws.
In the reverse fixture last November, Inter Milan brushed aside Torino with a 3-0 clean sheet as Lautaro Martinez, Romelu Lukaku, and Stefan de Vrij punched in the goals.
These two have drawn level in three of their last six matches.

For this match, Inter Milan are pegged to win at 1.46, while Torino are priced at 7.20 and chances for a draw are at 4.10 in the 1×2 market.
This indicates a huge quality difference between these two teams. But as they say in football, anything can happen.
It was also expected to happen in our old preview against Hellas Verona, but the ninth-seeded team defied the odds when their skipper in Miguel Veloso scored the equaliser late.
But I’m certain that Antonio Conte will set his men straight in order to avoid another collapse at home, as they won’t like the idea of languishing for too long.
