A win for Inter would send it back to 2nd, and with a one point edge on Atalanta. Anything less, though, and Lazio could jump into 3rd. But as Antonio Conte said, 2nd is just the “biggest loser”. The goal now should be to get Christian Eriksen and Lautaro Martínez some momentum ahead of the Europa League.
Genoa, on the other hand, come into this game after a huge win over its city rival Sampdoria. The win kept the Rossoblù four points above Lecce and relegation. Genoa does have a much tougher run-in than the Giallorossi, but whether Lecce can take advantage of that is up in the air. Better safe than sorry, though, so Genoa will come out fighting and determined for at least a point.
Predicted Starting XIs
Prediction: Genoa 0-2 Inter Milan
Even with Genoa fighting to the death for every ball, Inter should have no trouble thanks to goals in each half from Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young.
Also, apologies for the shortness. It was a scramble to get this done and detail didn’t get a seat in time.
