AS Roma take on the visitors Inter in the round 24 match of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Saturday, February 10th at Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Roma announced with great fanfare the return of José to Italy almost three years ago, in the spring of 2021. He was brought in to replace his compatriot Fonseca, who, like his predecessors, failed to lift the Wolves into the top 4 of Serie A, or more precisely, to return them to the Champions League. In Serie A, he didn't achieve much: slight progress in the first season and a decline in 2022/2023. Yes, the Italians won the inaugural edition of the Conference League, but most importantly, in 2023, they lost in the Europa League final to Sevilla on penalties. Nevertheless, The Special One survived this and retained his position, even after defeats at the start of the new season. But losses in the Coppa Italia to Lazio and in the league to Milan marked the end of this mostly disappointing era. So far, they haven't appointed a new permanent coach, making their legend, De Rossi, the interim coach. Daniele started with victories, although winning 2-1 against Verona and Salernitana wasn't unexpected. However, regaining confidence, they managed to overcome Cagliari, this time with a convincing victory.

Inter aims to reclaim the Scudetto. Nerazzurri were recently champions. However, Antonio Conte, who achieved this, immediately left, realizing that the Chinese owners of the club would have to significantly reduce funding. In these conditions, Simone Inzaghi agreed to work. The specialist from the capital won both the cup and the Super Cup in his first season and in 2023. And then he also led the team to the Champions League final. The squad underwent significant changes over the summer, but only improved. Yes, Nerazzurri stumbled in the Coppa Italia, losing at home to Bologna in extra time. But soon after that, their visit to Saudi Arabia ended with another Super Cup triumph, with victories over Lazio and Napoli. They also managed to advance from the group stage of the Champions League, albeit finishing second in their group (which incidentally led to reaching the round of 16 against Atletico Madrid). But most importantly, the Nerazzurri topped the Serie A table. Essentially, their only competitor on the domestic front right now is Juventus. Recently, the rivals met in Milan. And, albeit due to an own goal, the leader pulled away from the Old Lady with a win.
In October 2022, the Giallorossi managed to win after a series of defeats. But last calendar year, the Nerazzurri won both home and away. The Wolves were good against opponents they would have handled even with Mourinho. But now they have little chance. Let's bet on an away win for Nerazzurri.
Prediction for the match: Inter to win.
