Inter close to Europa League
By defeating Sampdoria 4-0 at Stadio Marassi Inter have obtained their 5th consecutive positive result on the road: 3 wins and 2 draws. Parma drew their game in Bologna (1-1) and lost the chance to have the same points as Inter (now Parma 51, Inter 53) but they count on their home strength as they are undefeated in their last 10 home games: 4 wins and 6 draws.
Parma only two defeats at home
Only Juventus and Roma made better than Parma (home balance: 7-7-2) in their home games as they are still undefeated. And it was Juventus (1-0) and Roma (3-1) the only teams to defeat Parma at Stadio Tardini. If Parma had not lost many points by drawing with weaker teams (Chievo, Bologna, Cagliari, Catania and Genoa) they would be now fighting for a Champions League spot with Napoli.
Inter best attack on the road
Even by experiencing a negative season Inter have sometimes expressed a good quality in their away games, away balance: 6-6-4. In these 16 away game they have scored 32 goals (included a 7-0 win over Sassuolo and a 4-0 win over Sampdoria), 3 goals more than Juventus which played an away game more than Inter, 6 goals more than Roma and 4 goals more than Napoli.
Parma won only one game in their last 5 but it was the only game they played at home. They lost twice in Rome (with Lazio and Roma), in Turin with Juventus and drew 1-1 in Bologna. Inter have lost only once in their last 11 games and they experienced a difficult period between the end of March and the beginning of April where they lost to Atalanta at home (1-2), drew two more home games with Udinese (0-0) and Bologna (2-2) and lost a two goals advantage in Livorno (2-2).
Kovacic in the starting line-up
Inter coach Walter Mazzarri will have to make an important change as central defender Ranocchia is out for suspension. Campagnaro will take his place. Juan and Jonathan are injured but they have not played at Marassi neither while Alvarez should also be not available. On the home side Cassano and Parolo are back and probably we will see Schelotto, Biabiany, Gargano and Cassano all playing against their former team.
Inter won only 3 games at Stadio Tardini out of 22. This match could be decisive for the Europa League qualifying as with a win Inter would keep a good advantage on Parma, Torino, Milan and Lazio.
I like the way Parma play and I think that they deserve a place in the Europa League. Still, I think that they will have to fight for this spot with Torino and Milan while Inter should get closer to Europa League today as they will then have to meet Napoli and Milan. The good work must be done now and Inter are dangerous when they play on the road. Inter should win this game through their superior quality and form of their players. Correct score: 1-2 Palacio, Icardi, Lucarelli
