Inter will look to bounce back from their defeat to Atalanta when they host struggling Frosinone on Saturday in Serie A at San Siro.
After the 4-1 thumping last time out, Inter will look to reduce the current nine point gap between them and leaders Juventus.
They have the perfect chance against Frosinone, who lie in 17th spot with only seven points, and need a result to move clear of the relegation zone.

Head to Head Record
Inter were absolutely flying, winning seven Serie A games in a row before crashing back down to earth with their 4-1 defeat to Atalanta. That may give Spalletti and his team the wake-up call they needed and they have the perfect game to get back on track.
Although lowly Frosinone’s league position isn’t ideal, with only winless Chievo below them, they have picked up some form recently, winning one and drawing three of the last four games to show signs of recovery.
Here’s how the last five games have gone for the two teams.
|Atalanta 4-1 Inter (11/11)||Frosinone 1-1 Fiorentina (09/11)|
|Inter 5-0 Genoa (03/11)||Parma 0-0 Frosinone (04/11)|
|Lazio 0-3 Inter (29/10)||SPAL 0-3 Frosinone (28/10)|
|Inter 1-0 AC Milan (21/10)||Frosinone 3-3 Empoli (21/10)|
|SPAL 1-2 Inter (07/10)||Torino 3-2 Frosinone (05/10)|
Although Spalletti’s men will have one eye on their Champions League game with Tottenham, the Nerazzurri should have too much for their opponents on Saturday, as this is a great chance to get their league momentum back on track.
Frosinone are fighting for their lives but Inter should be too strong at San Siro.
Prediction: Inter 3-0 Frosinone
