In this match Torino will look to get a btter spot in the table while Inter are still in the hunt for the Scudetto as they still sit one point behind reigning Juventus. Here is how these two sides stack up.
Inter so far this season have been a well oiled machine despite hiccups here and there. Defensive wise Skriniar and Devrij still prove they are a force to be reckoned with. They continue to go out there and block opponents chances along with making sure they help set up strong counter attacks when they steal the ball. They are also strong at setting up goal chances as well as assisting. On the defensive midfield Barella and Gagliardini have done a great job multi tasking between defensive and offensive positions they can help the defense along with helping in the offense like creating and assiting chances the rest of the midfield such as Asomah, Brozovic and Biraghi have stepped up in finishing chances. But where this club as really shined is in the attack Martinez and Lukaku have been oil and fire both are a explosive combination of speed and agility along with physic with Lukaku in the air these two will be the key threats if they are not shut down it’ll be goodnight Torino.
On Torino on there defense have a few key players that are solid in blocking and stealing the ball. Silvestri, Ansaldi and Lyanco these players have always been key asset to their defense. On the midfield they have a few players out with injury but they have a few other players that have stepped up to the plate such as Lukic and Edera who have helped and assist chances along with helping in defensive rolls when the need arises. Verdi and Belotti have been the players that have kept this club alive in finishing and creating chances. The key player in this match will be Belotti who is the top goal scorer for the club if Inter don’t keep him in check he will cause Inter issues.
The bottom line
In this match Inter will need to continue winning areial duals. They will also need to maitain finishing scoring chances and being able to capitialize on them. Defensive wise they are already doing a great job so all they’ll need to do is keep up their momentum. Torino will need to make sure to keep a eye on the dynamic duo of Lukaku and Martinez who will run past you if you let them. Offensive wise they will need to create chances as often as possible and finish them as this is a area where Inter excell at. But the edge should go for an Inter win.
