Inter Milan can strengthen their grip on the top-four when they host Chievo in Serie A at San Siro on Monday night.
INT vs CHV Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Inter Milan are fourth now and face a battle for their place. After a few weeks of uncanny results, the teams sitting below them, which are thier direct rivals for the Champions League places, are now within a whisker of usurping them from the top-four.
It's an unfamiliar situation to be in for Inter fans, for they have been battling with Napoli for the second place all season. So if Inter do fail to finish in the top-four, it will be a serious meltdown for the club and serious questions will be asked from manager Luciano Spalletti.
Though his own position at the club is under serious threat as well. More so, after Jose Mourinho was sacked at Old Trafford. The talks of Mourinho returning to San Siro are getting louder with each dissatisfactory result.
Inter come into this match on a three-game winless run. Two of those games were against big teams in AS Roma and Juventus, while the other game was against Udinese.
Luckily, for the hosts, their next opponents are propping up the table. They have been the worst teams throughout the campaign, and have won just two league games all season.
It's Chievo and Inter shouldn't have any problem is seeing them out.
That said, a win for the hosts will them above Atalanta on the table.
