    The titanic battle for the Scudetto continues this weekend. One of the main protagonists are Inter, who travel to Lecce on Sunday afternoon.

    The Nerazzurri have slipped two points behind perennial champions Juventus in the race for the Serie A crown. Antonio Conte’s team are unbeaten in 12 games in the Italian top-flight. In fact, they have suffered just one league defeat all season, which was against title rivals Juventus.

    However, the problem of late for Inter is drawing too many games, as they have drawn three of their last five league outings in the Italian top-flight. The draws have been understandable, as two of them have been against tough opponents in Roma and Atalanta.

    Conte’s team will be determined to get back to winning ways in Serie A in this game. A 4-1 midweek win over Cagliari in the Coppa Italia will send the Nerazzurri into this game in confident mood.

    As will their recent away record in the Italian top-flight, as Conte’s team has won eight of their previous nine matches on the road while scoring at least twice in all eight victories.

    Lecce, of course, have very different aspirations this season to the visitors, as the home side fight for their Serie A lives. Fabio Liverani’s team are just one place and point above the drop zone in the Italian top-flight.

    Their recent form in Serie A has been absolutely woeful, as Lecce have failed to win in their last five league outings, losing their last four matches in the Italian top-flight.

    A leaky defence has been a big factor in Lecce’s perilous position in the table, as they have conceded at least two goals in seven of their last nine league matches.

    Forebet predicts that Inter will record a comfortable victory in a high-scoring encounter to enhance their chances of being in top spot at the end of the weekend.
