Match Preview

The San Siro is set for Internazionale’s 13th appearance in the Champions League (CL) group stage, a venue that has seen them unbeaten in five of their last six tournament home fixtures (W3, D2, L1).
Yet whilst Inter have started their Serie A campaign with three consecutive victories, winning at half-time in all three, they failed to progress from the CL group stage last season, going winless in their final four matches (D2, L2). All four ended with under 2.5 goals, and saw the Italians concede the opener.
Although in arguably the toughest CL group of all, Slavia Prague do enter this game on an 19-match unbeaten run, which includes a pair of 1-0 victories in the CL qualifying rounds. On the road, a solid defence has been the Czech champions’ bedrock, with four clean sheets from their six competitive away games this term (W4, D2).
Four of those six games featured under 2.5 goals, which has also been the case in 11 of Slavia’s last 12 CL fixtures, and nine of their previous 12 European fixtures against Italian opposition (90 minutes only). However two red cards, two missed penalties, and four goals after the 75th minute across Slavia’s six competitive away games this season, shows low-scoring games doesn’t always equate to low-drama.
Players to watchRomelu Lukaku has netted in two of Inter’s three SA fixtures this term – he scored twice in the CL last season, with both goals arriving before half-time.
Josef Hušbauer netted the opener in Slavia’s last match – three of his four goals this term have been as his team’s first goalscorer.
