Serie A Preview | Inter vs. Torino: Winter Champions let loose

by | Dec 20, 2021 23:07

Inter are already guaranteed the title of Winter Champions, but could further consolidate their leadership against Ivan Juric’s Torino.

The Nerazzurri are four points clear at the top of the table and can celebrate the Winter crown with a round to spare after six consecutive Serie A victories. Nicolò Barella is suspended and Joaquin Correa injured, but there could be more squad rotation for Simone Inzaghi.

Toro scraped a win past a Verona side that were down to 10 men for over an hour and went out of the Coppa Italia to Sampdoria, but above all have a poor away record. Josip Brekalo should return to the starting XI, but Andrea Belotti and Dennis Praet are sidelined.

Form Guide: (W W W W W) Torino (W W D D L)

Stat fact: Lautaro Martinez has found the net in each of his last four Serie A games against Torino, so could become the first player since 1994-95 to score past Toro in five straight meetings.

Torino (3-4-2-1): V Milinkovic-Savic; Djidji, Bremer, Rodriguez; Singo, Lukic, Pobega, Vojvoda; Pjaca, Brekalo; Sanabria

    Courious to see if false modest Juric puts up a true fight as he always love doing against Napoli especially, but I doubt it very much, the guy avoids upsetting the tradition of total submission to the Italian Football Establishment’s hierarchy, otherwise known to some as the “Calcio Security Council “, aka (Robentus, Inter, and Milan).
    NB; False modesty is the worse form of arrogance.
