Inter hope to start another winning streak when they travel to Spezia on Wednesday. Antonio Conte’s side finally saw their run come to an end at Napoli on the weekend. Spezia lost each of their last five games on the road, but they won the previous two at Alberto Picco.
Spezia improved their home performance
While there have been five defeats on the trot in away games, Spezia didn’t lose any of the last five at home. The run started with a historic win against AC Milan, who were top of the table and never lost in about a year at the time.
Draws against Parma and Benevento followed before they went on to win the last two games. Spezia’s last five games saw goals at either end as the club is enjoying a successful debut Serie A season.
They’ve no relegation concern, while Europe is way too soon for them in the meantime. Still, they lost heavily on the weekend with a 4-1 reverse at Bologna, with all the goals scored before the hour mark.
When and where to watch?
The match kicks off at 19:45 on Wednesday 21st April 2021 and will be streaming live on William Hill.
Inter still in route to first Scudetto in a decade
Conte’s side won 11 league games in the row before the weekend. The run includes big wins against Lazio, AC Milan and Atalanta. It took Gennaro Gattuso’s European hopefuls, Napoli, to take points off Inter for the first time since the goalless draw against Udinese in January.
Coupled with the eight games winning run at the end of 2020, Inter have the reward for their consistency in the league with no shortage of title contenders at the season start.
While AC Milan have been at the top for a while, Inter took up a notch when it matters. The exit from the European competition was also a real help because they were only concerned about the league’s actions on the weekend.
Inter hope to keep a 100% record against Spezia
Inter won all five games against Spezia to date. The latest fixture ended 2-1 with Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku scoring the goals after the break. Conte lost to Spezia when he was a coach of Arezzo of Serie B in 2007, however.
