Match Date: 31 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Armando Picchi


(Unsuccessful) in their previous matches, Livorno and Inter seek for redemption in their upcoming match.


Inter has no choice but to settle to a scoreless stalemate against Udinese. The former may have a better rank, but the latter has been their closest rival in Italy’s top-flight league, thus, the stalemate was rather expected.


When asked about his side’s performance, Inter’s head honcho, Walter Mazzarri threw praises and admiration to his boys. But he stressed that they could have scored 2-3 goals if they have been more clinical on the pitch.


Inter currently occupies the 5th spot of the Serie A table and trails Fiorentina by 3 points. They could have taken the opportunity to outrank the latter since they lost to AC Milan, but to no avail.


Meanwhile, Livorno’s defeat to Atalanta resulted to their downward spiral. As the season is about to end, the club is desperate to gain more points. At any rate, they are just a notch away from safety. Moreover, they only need less than 2 points to mark their first step towards survival.


Domenico Di Carlo stressed to his players that unity is the ultimate key to their success. He also mentioned that if they are to win against Inter, they have to be more clinical and take advantage of the opportunities that that they will encounter—a trait that Inter failed to observe during its match against Udinese.


With the wide gap that separates Livorno and Atalanta, it is no longer a secret to know which of the two shall be hailed as the encounter’s online betting favorite.
