Inter Milan are set to host Parma at the San Siro on Saturday in their next Serie A fixture.

Antonio Conte's Inter Milan come into this game on the back of a 0-0 draw against Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

Despite enjoying the lion's share of possession and playing the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez, Inter Milan were unable to find the back of the net.

Parma, on the other hand, beat Pescara 3-1 in the third round of the Coppa Italia on Wednesday.

A brace from former Inter Milan attacker Yann Karamoh and a goal from young Italian attacker Andrea Adorante secured the win for Fabio Liverani's side. Defender Mardochee Nzita scored the consolation goal for Pescara.

Inter Milan vs Parma Prediction

Inter Milan are seen as primary contenders for the Serie A title, and manager Antonio Conte will want to take advantage of Juventus' inconsistent form under Andrea Pirlo. However, Inter Milan have also suffered from inconsistency, and will have to at their very best against Parma.

Parma, on the other hand, have won one of their first five league games. Experienced players like Portugal international Bruno Alves and attacker Gervinho will have to ensure that their subdued start does not become the norm this season.

Inter Milan will be keen to make a mark in the league, having invested heavily since Antonio Conte has been in charge. They should be able to get past Parma by at least a two-goal margin on Saturday.

Prediction: Inter Milan 2-0 Parma
