Inter could close the issue of leaving the group in the last round, but did not keep the victory over Barcelona. The team will obviously strive to achieve their goal today – for this they need a victory.
The task for the hosts is not the most difficult – Victoria is seriously inferior in class, makes a lot of mistakes in defense. Motivated and in great shape, Inter will surely arrange another defeat for the Czechs.
Prediction for this match: Handicap Inter (-3).
- Total over 3.5 goals.
