The Nerazzurri are breathing down the necks of fourth-placed Fiorentina after a run of five games undefeated and will also be hoping to extend their advantage over their hosts
Inter will be confident of capitalising 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, with back-to-back wins over Sassuolo and Fiorentina last month.
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.
Consequently, Inter are now just one point and one place behind fourth-placed Fiorentina and will be keen to take this opportunity to possibly overhaul the Viola but also pull away from Verona, who sit seventh.
The reverse fixture should give this weekend’s visitors confidence, with Inter, who are currently unbeaten in five games, 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.
