With a chance to take the lead in the Italian Championship 2017/2018 edition, Internazionale will open on Tuesday, October 24, the tenth round of the competition. In the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium, in Milan, welcomes Sampdoria. The match is scheduled for 4:45 pm (Brasília time).
The recent performance of Internazionale
Reaching the top of the Serie a Italian, although temporarily, is a feat that Inter has not even come close in recent seasons. With investments in reinforcements and tactical adjustments made by Luciano Spalletti, the team remains undefeated in official matches in the 2017/2018 season. There were nine games (seven wins and two draws).
On Saturday, for the ninth round of the Italian Championship, Inter did not win, but can compute the goalless draw with Napoli at the San Paolo stadium in Naples as a good result. After all, until then, the Neapolitan team had perfect advantage in the tournament with eight consecutive victories. He is in the lead with 25 points escorted by the Milan team, who has 23 (seven wins and two draws).
With Spalletti, Inter presents the best defense of the tournament. He conceded only five goals, the same number as Napoli and Rome (in this case in a lesser game). As principal, the Milanese team performs perfectly. There were four straight wins with nine goals scored and only two conceded.
For the duel of this Tuesday, the coach has practically all its main players at disposal. His only doubt for the match is in relation to midfielder Marcelo Brozovic (five games of the Italian Championship edition 2017/2018, two goals). The athlete suffered a muscle injury that took him out of the last two matches. You will still need to undergo further tests, but the greater probability is that you will not be released to perform.
The current form of Sampdoria
Despite having a much lower investment volume than the one applied at Internazionale, Sampdoria achieved two significant results in the previous two days. In the eighth round, he passed by Atalanta scoring 3 to 1. On Saturday, October 21, for the ninth round, he overcame Crotone by beating 5-0.
Both games were played in their stadium where, just like the Milan team, Samp has a perfect campaign. He won all four matches. In total, the team accumulated 17 points (five wins, two draws and one loss). It appears in the sixth position, the last in the European Tournament classification zone.
Your situation is not better because performance as a visitor has been poor. In the last three matches, they were two draws and a defeat, by beating, 4-0 to Udinese.
Coach Marco Giampaolo will also have practically all his athletes available to set the team that will face Internazionale on Tuesday. The only downfall will be the Brazilian defender Dodô. The 25-year-old suffered a wrist injury and has yet to make his official debut in the 2017/2018 season.
