The Nerazzurri come into this game sitting in fifth spot, and a win against Torino could see them temporarily overtake Lazio into fourth place. Under the tutelage of Stefano Pioli, Inter have won 12 out of their last 15 games, and the only defeats have been against Juventus, Roma, and Napoli – all sides in the top three.
Meanwhile, Torino have been quite solid. Although the Granata are out of contention for a European spot, they have been quite impressive at home.
So far, they have lost just once at the Stadio Olimpico, and are among the highest scoring sides in the league. The Granata and Inter have racked up well over 100 goals between them, and given that 14 out of their 17 home ties have seen over 2.5 goals, expect more on Saturday.
Inter, meanwhile, have been firing in the goals like there is no tomorrow.
In their past two games they have scored a whopping 12, and in their most recent tie, Argentinian duo Mauro Icardi and Ever Banega scored hat-tricks. This explosion of goals includes the 7-1 demolition of Atalanta and a 5-1 drubbing of Cagliari. And given Torino’s defensive woes, Inter surely will be wanting to add more to their rapidly growing tally.
Torino have seen 25 goals scored in their past five games, including a 5-3 win over Pescara and a 4-1 defeat to Roma. With Andrea Belotti in rich form, this also could be an interesting showdown between two of the most in-form strikers in Serie A.
