Inter Milan face Roma at San Siro Stadium on Saturday, April 20. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
The race for the final Champions League spot in Serie A is extremely close. Roma enter the weekend in fifth place, one point behind AC Milan. Only three points separate Milan and seventh place, Lazio. On Saturday, third-place Inter Milan host Roma at the San Siro.
Inter are six points ahead of Roma. However, a loss on Saturday could drag Inter back into the battle for a Champions League spot. Inter have not lost since Mauro Icardi returned to the club, picking up seven points in their last three games. Despite missing 10 games this season, Icardi leads Inter with 10 goals this season. Inter will need another strong performance from Icardi if they are going to beat Roma.
Roma have started to put it together under Claudio Ranieri. After picking up only four points in their last four games, Roma have won two straight games. Edin Dzeko scored the winner against Udinese last weekend. Dzeko is second on the club with eight goals this season. Stephan El Shaarawy leads the club with nine goals and will lead the attack with Dzeko and teenager Nicolo Zaniolo. Roma signed Zaniolo from Inter in the summer. The 19-year-old played only 23 minutes over the first 10 games but has gradually worked his way into being a regular. As the season has gone on, Zaniolo has emerged as Roma’s best midfielder and Inter’s decision to sell Zaniolo to sign Radja Nainggolan is looking like a terrible decision.
The Serie A game between Inter Milan and Roma will be broadcast live on ESPN+. Live streaming is available on ESPN+, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscriptions, either online or through the ESPN+ app.
Inter and Roma have drawn in their last two games. Since the start of the 2014-15 season, each team has won three games, with three games ending in draws.
