Frosinone vs. Inter: Match Preview, Team News and Ways to Watch

New, comments

A (hopefully) easy match for the Nerazzurri this weekend, but still very important for their hopes of finishing the season in 3rd place.

So many things happened last week and unfortunately, just a few of them were good for us. First, there was the 4-2 Roma win in the Derby, then we lost 1-2 to Torino with two defenders sent off because of controversial calls by the referee. The only reasons for happiness were Icardi's goal and the Fiorentina draw against Sampdoria, which allows Inter to still hope for a 4th place finish, even though the 3rd place, which is 8 points away, shouldn't be ruled out yet, with 7 matches to play before the end of the season.

Miranda and Nagatomo were the two players who saw red last Sunday so they won't play against Frosinone, leaving Mancini with very few options in the defensive line. Medel could replace Joao as the centre-back, but since the Chilean missed Wednesday's training he most probably keep his usual midfielder role and Juan Jesus will pair up with Murillo instead. As always, it's hard to say who will play for Inter though he will likely persist with a 4231 formation. Roby likes to rotate his players, especially the ones behind the striker (almost certainly Icardi) and Perisic, Brozovic, and Eder seem the most likely to be starting behind the Argentinian striker this week. Kondogbia should play along with Medel as a central midfielder, but everything could change if Ljajic manages to land a starting role at the expense of the Frenchman, forcing Brozovic to play in his more natural CM role.

Everyone expects three points this weekend given that the Canarini have collected just 27 points this season, but they will surely fight tooth and nail to take at least one point in their fight to avoid relegation. Frosinone is currently in 19th place, but Carpi and Palermo are just one point ahead of them, so they have every reason to hope for the possibility of remaining in the Serie A for at least one more year. Last time these two teams were on the same pitch together, the Nerazzurri destroyed the opponents with a convincing 4-0 win, a result like that would be greatly appreciated by the Inter fans and would help them forget the painful defeat against Torino.
