Verona-Inter Preview: Europe in sight for Nerazzurri

Walter Mazzarri’s men are breathing down the necks of fourth-placed Fiorentina and will also be hoping to put distance between themselves and their hosts

Inter will be looking to capitalise on Verona’s poor recent home form when they visit the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi on Saturday.

Having impressed in front of their own fans during the first half of the season, Verona are without a win in five Serie A matches on home soil, although they have hosted leading trio Juventus, Roma and Napoli during that time.

Inter, meanwhile, recently brought an end to their dismal run of one win in 10 on the road in all competitions, emerging victorious at Fiorentina.

Walter Mazzarri’s men held Roma to a credible goalless draw at the Stadio Olimpico in their last away fixture, before triumphing 1-0 over Torino at home thanks to a header from Rodrigo Palacio.

Fourth-placed Fiorentina have started to falter and Inter – one point behind in fifth – will be keen to take an opportunity to pull away from Verona, who sit seventh, and enhance their own European ambitions.

The reverse fixture should give this weekend’s visitors confidence, with Inter having picked up a 4-2 win over Verona at San Siro earlier this season.

Inter will be without Juan Jesus, who remains sidelined through suspension, while Verona have no fresh injury concerns following a 2-0 defeat to Parma last time out.
