Game: Inter – Catania
Date: 26 January, Sunday 2014 year
Start time: 14:00 GMT
Inter hosts Catania in game of the 21 round of Seria “A” at San Siro in Milano. Before this match, Inter is on 5th position in the stantings with 32 points, while Catania is on 20th position with 13 points.
Since the beginning of the new year Inter has not yet made a win. In four games in 2014 they have three loses and one draw. Thus “The Black and Blues” lagged behind the places, giving the right to participate in the Champions League and it is almost impossible to qualify for the competition next season.
Despite the poor performance of the team lately, coach Walter Madzari still has strengthened the team with new players in the January transfer window.
One of the main players of Inter Fredy Guarín almost certainly will not take part in the match. Colombian is wanted by Juventus and Napoli and will almost certainly leave the “Nerazzurri”, after refusing to take part in training session.
Catania started the year with a victory against Bologna with 2-0, but then recorded two defeats in the league, and also eliminated from the Coppa Italia after a loss at home to Siena with 1:4.
The players of Rolando Maran are with the second weakest defense in Serie “A” after they conceded 37 goals this season.
Inter is a series of three consecutive wins against Catania in Serie A. Inter presents generally successful as host, in contrast to their away matches.
In the upcoming game, I think that the players of Madzari not miss the opportunity to record their first win in 2014. I also think that they will win convincingly to regain the confidence of the team.
