Inter’s complete inability to build a run of form this season means that this Serie A Matchday 20 clash against Cremonese looks like a very important game for Simone Inzaghi.
The Nerazzurri were beaten 1-0 by Empoli on Monday night as Tommaso Baldanzi scored the winner following Milan Skriniar’s red card in the first half which means they’ve failed to pounce so far on Juventus‘ points deduction and the fact they look out of the top four fight.
Whilst the game is away from home, taking on Cremonese may be welcome for Inter. The Grigiorossi are still yet to win this season in the league sit at the foot of the table.

Inter will have to make do without Skriniar as he will be serving a suspension, although don’t be shocked if he has left the club by the time Saturday’s game rolls around. Inzaghi could look to start with Romelu Lukaku though after the Belgian came off the bench against Empoli.
Marcelo Brozovic is still out injured by Stefan de Vrij could be involved.
Cremonese should be able to count on Cyril Dessers but Romanian goalkeeper Ionut Radu is not expected to recover in time.
