Inter vs Genoa match day preveiw #209

This week Inter will be taking on relegation threatened Genoa before the season goes on winter break. Overall Inter have won four out of their last six matches against Genoa. Genoa on the other hand only have two wins. This match is a must win for each side each with their own reason. Genoa will be looking to dig themselves out of the relegation zone as they’ve been struggling this season. This side is normally known to be a mid table side but as of recent seasons have been dropping in the standings which it would suck to see them sent down to Serie B. Inter on the other hand are looking not to drop further points as they now sit behind Juventus after their win on Wenesday. Here is what you can expect when these two sides face off.

The player breakdown

On injury list for Inter are Barella, Sanchez, Sensi, Asamoah, Candreva, Gagliardini but it’s been reported that Sanchez and Barella will be bck for their first match of the new year on Januray 5th. On suspension is Brozovic and Martinez. On Genoa out are Zapata, Lerager, Saponara, Kouame, Pandev, Gumus, Barreca. Both of these squads main players are out on injury which means they’re both going to be playing with a thin squad. Despite both sides being thinned out both sides still have a few players they need to keep eyes out for. The defense of Inter will need to keep an eye out for Pinamonti who was one of the top youth prospects of the club in my opinion it was dumb to get rid of him and he would’ve come in handy in this match. Also one of top goal scorers Favilli they will definitely need to keep an eye on as he’s quick and agile. On the midfield they will need to keep an eye on Sandro, Cassata as they are good at setting up chances and taking chances of their own. Genoa defenders will have a list of their own first and foremost is keep an eye out for Lukaku who is one of the top scorers for the club this season. They will also need to focus on Politano who despite not playing much is still a quality player. This match will be tough for both sides.

The bottom line

This match will be tough for both sides as they have a limited squad to work with. Inter will more than likely have a hard time creating chances especially without Martinez and a thin midfield. This is one thing Genoa can take advantage of. This means Inter’s defense will need to be on guard as Genoa will look to create chances of their own which will give Inter issues. This match will more than likely be a draw but win wise Inter might pull it off if they create chances and don’t make costly mistakes.
