A high-profile match between two of this season’s contending teams, AS Roma (17-4-8, 59 points) and Inter Milan (16-7-6, 54 points), is scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 19th at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome as the 2015-2016 Serie A season begins to wind down.
The top two teams at the end of the season will directly qualify in next season’s UEFA Champions League group stage while the third-placed club will qualify in the playoff round of the said European continental competition.
Meanwhile, Inter Milan escaped with a 2-1 victory over middling team Bologna FC at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza also last Saturday. The match started with both teams unable to find each other’s net, making the game scoreless until the final 18 minutes. Internazionale suddenly caught up with the scoring, netting two quick goals at the 72nd and 76th minutes courtesy of winger Ivan Perisic and full back Danilo D’Ambrosio to build a 2-0 lead.
