Jose Mourinho’s team have been inconsistent this season. However, the Giallorossi are still fifth-place, occupying the final European berth a Europa League spot. The team from the Italian capital are also just six points shy of the league’s top-four and a win would boost their hopes of playing Champions League next season.
The reigning champions have picked up major positive momentum in recent months. In fact, the visitors have now recorded four straight league wins following a 2-0 home win against Spezia. The victory was the Nerazzurri’s fourth consecutive win in all competitions, while also making them undefeated in ten competitive matches.
Roma are the sort of team that you don’t always know what you are going to get from them. Inter seem to have found a similar sort of consistency to last season when they won the Scudetto. We are backing the Nerazzurri to record another win in this clash.
Starting with the hosts, while Roma might have thought that they had found a real boost when returning from November’s international break, they certainly came crashing back down to earth in midweek.
As for the visitors, putting in another professional display earlier in the week, Inter Milan find themselves enjoying what has been an eye-catching purple patch. Last seen on Wednesday landing a deserved 2-0 win against Spezia on home soil, the defending Italian champions have done a stellar job of making up ground in the title hunt.

Roma vs Inter Milan: Predictions
After a positive start to life in Roma, things have taken a downturn for Mourinho, with his side struggling for consistency. Having won each of their first six games across all competitions, Roma have now lost seven of their past 16, including that humiliating defeat to Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League.
Roma vs Inter Milan: Match Stats
Lautaro Martinez goes into this game in good form, having scored in each of his past three Serie A appearances and eight in 14 in total (playing just 900 minutes).
Roma vs Inter Milan: Head to Head
While Inter have dominated this fixture historically, with 91 wins to Roma’s 61, things have been a lot more even recently. Six of the past eight Serie A meetings between these two sides have ended in draws, sandwiched between two Inter wins. Roma’s last victory against Inter game in February 2017, a 3-1 win at the San Siro.
Having travelled to Emilia-Romagna hoping a worrisome few weeks were well behind them, Roma’s attempts to secure a third successive Serie A win – and a fourth in all competitions – fell flat at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Wednesday.
Simone Inzaghi made some changes against limited opposition in midweek but is likely to revert to full strength upon his return to Stadio Olimpico, where he managed Lazio with such distinction for a number of years.
We say: Roma 1-2 Inter Milan
Inter’s greatest foes Milan last punctured Roma’s excellent home record in Serie A, and the impressive Nerazzurri can make it a double triumph for the second city on Saturday.
