Inter will look to be hoping to kickstart their stuttering season as they host a relegation-threatened Crotone side at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. Luciano Spalletti’s side will be strong favourites against the hosts despite his side’s recent patchy form.

Inter v Crotone Predictions and Preview
Inter’s run of form is alarmingly poor – they are without a victory in nine in all competitions and their title challenge looks completely gone, with the challenge now to seal a top four spot.
Spalletti’s side still sit in fourth, three points above Roma, but they sit a massive 13 points behind league leaders Napoli.
Crotone meanwhile have hit somewhat of a run of form, an impressive 3-0 victory at fellow strugglers Hellas Verona was followed up with a point at home to Cagliari.
Before those games, Crotone had lost eight of their previous nine but are not yet in the relegation zone – sitting two points from 18th-placed Spal.
Inter are overwhelming favourites to pick up all three points in this fixture despite their recent run of poor results.
The Nerazzurri are priced at 3/10 to pick up all three points with a shock away win for Crotone at 13/1 with the draw available at 26/5.
Inter have conceded just five goals in their last six games and 20/21 to win to nil in this fixture, with fewer than 2.5 goals in the game available at 5/4.
One to watch for Inter: Mauro Icardi has scored 18 goals in 22 league outings this campaign (only Lazio’s Ciro Immobile has more in the league) despite scoring only once in his last five league games. He is 8/11 to score anytime in this encounter.
One to watch for Crotone: Croatian forward Ante Budimir is the visitors dangerman and their top scorer in the league with four goals. He is priced at 11/2 to find the net anytime in this fixture.
Long shot: Crotone have managed just 17 goals in 22 league games this season while Inter have only four goals in their last nine in all competitions. A scoreless draw in this fixture is priced at 31/2.
