Inter Milan entertain AS Roma in Coppa Italia 2021-22 quarter-final - get fantasy tips and predictions
Inter Milan (INT) and AS Roma (ROM) clash in the quarter-finals of Coppa Italia 2021-22 at San Siro on Wednesday, February 9. The game will begin at 1.30 AM IST.
INT vs ROM Dream11 prediction
Inter, who haven’t won the Coppa Italia since 2010-11, will eye a return to winning ways when they entertain AS Roma for their Coppa Italia quarter-final encounter.
Simeone Inzaghi’s Nerazzurri saw their eight-game unbeaten run across all competitions end with a 1-2 derby loss to AC Milan. They return to cup action after a 3-2 win against Empoli in the previous round.
Roma, on the flip side, have three wins and a draw in all competitions since a 3-4 league defeat to Juventus.
Inter Milan have not lost to Roma since August 2017, and will lock horns in an Italian Cup tie for the first time since their 2013 semi-finals. Based on both teams’ displays this term, we predict INT to be the outright winner of this contest.
INT vs ROM Dream11 team tips for Coppa Italia 2021-22 quarter-final
Top tip: Best forward
Tammy Abraham is our recommendation as the top forward for this clash. The English striker has 17 goals as well as four assists across all competitions since his arrival from Chelsea and has been at the forefront of AS Roma’s positive performances this season. While he faces stiff competition from Inter frontman Edin Dzeko - 12 goals and seven assists - in fantasy selections, 24-year-old Abraham’s scoring rate makes him a better pick.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Hakan Calhanoglu will aim to toy around in the midfield engine room for Inter on Wednesday. The Turkish playmaker has made 15 goal contributions - six goals and nine assists - across all competitions and looks poised to drive the Inter attack forward.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Roger Ibanez is among AS Roma’s top goal-scorers this season and could be a matchwinner for the team during setpieces in the INT vs ROM fixture. The Brazilian centre-back has scored four times this season, while also playing a strong role during the team’s build-up play with 1109 successful passes from 1271 attempted in the Serie A.
Amongst goalkeepers, Rui Patricio is a worthy choice to add to your fantasy team. The Roma custodian has kept 12 clean sheets across all competitions as has his opposite number Samir Handanovic, but the Portuguese shot-stopper’s composure between the sticks gives him a big advantage over Inter Milan’s captain.
INT vs ROM probable XI
INT probable XI: Samir Handanovic (captain and goalkeeper); Andrea Ranocchia, Milan Skriniar, Alessandro Bastoni; Matteo Darmian, Nicolo Barella, Hakan Calhanoglu, Marcelo Brozovic, Ivan Perisic; Lautaro Martinez, Edin Dzeko
ROM probable XI: Rui Patricio (goalkeeper); Gianluca Mancini (captain), Roger Ibanez, Chris Smalling; Rick Karsdorp, Jordan Veretout, Bryan Cristante, Ainsley Maitland-Niles; Henrikh Mkhitaryan; Nicolo Zaniolo, Tammy Abraham
