Inter Milan vs Salernitana Preview: Inter aim to extend lead against struggling Salernitana

Inter Milan will be looking to extend their lead at the top of Serie A when they host struggling Salernitana on Friday.

Inter have been in excellent form in recent weeks, winning their last seven games in all competitions. They have also been strong at home, winning their last six league games at San Siro.

Salernitana, on the other hand, are in danger of relegation. They are currently 17th in the table, just seven points above the relegation zone.

The visitors have lost their last three away games in Serie A, and they have conceded at least two goals in each of those games.
