Inter will aim to strengthen their grip on the Scudetto when they face newly promoted Genoa tonight at the San Siro.

Pundits and fans alike hoped for Atalanta to provide a dent to Inter’s near-perfect season in the last Serie A matchday but the Nerazzurri rolled on extending their winning run without any difficulty. Matteo Darmian, Lautaro Martinez, Federico Dimarco and Davide Fratessi popped their names on the scoresheet to inspire a thrilling victory over the Bergamo-based outfit. Simone Inzaghi might be tempted tonight to rotate his squad as his team has a massive game coming up at the Wanda Metropolitano against Atletico Madrid this month. Inter have scored more goals than any other team in Europe’s top-five leagues this season and they have formulated themselves as a lethal attacking outfit with balance in defence. They go into this game as clear favourites but they remember that it was at the hands of this newly promoted team they were made to drop points in December.

Meanwhile, Genoa will bank on the 1-1 draw with Inter in the home game and will aim to do the same to settle for a point. It is set to be a tough task to contain the Nerazzurri onslaught but the 2-0 victory in their last match against Udinese has injected the right momentum into them. The Grifone arrive at this match having lost just once in their last 11 league games. In their previous outing, Mateo Retegui opened the scoring and Mattia Bani added the second in the 40th minute to take the Rossoblu over the finishing line. A defensive approach is expected to be played out by Genoa tonight and they will be sure to take any counter-attacking chances should they arise.

Here are the predicted line-ups for the match:

Inter (3-5-2): Sommer; Pavard, De Vrij, Augusto; Dumfries, Barella, Asllani, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Sanchez, Martinez

Genoa (3-5-1-1): Martinez; De Winter, Bani, Vasquez; Sabelli, Frendrup, Badelj, Messias, Martin; Gudmundsson; Retegui
