Torino's Andrea Belotti better than Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi - Iago Falque
Torino winger Iago Falque has said he believes teammate Andrea Belotti is a better player than Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi.
The two prolific goal scorers will be in the spotlight when Torino host Inter at the weekend, with Belotti having scored 22 goals and Icardi on 20.
Asked which of the two he preferred, Falque told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "I have got to say 'Il Gallo' [Belotti], haven't I?
"They are two different forwards and they are both really good. Icardi's excellent, but I think Belotti's that bit better -- the statistics confirm it also.
"Belotti is somebody who can do it all by himself. He knows how to create chances. He's got 22 goals, which would already be a lot if the season were to end now."
He said Torino would take on Inter with confidence, adding: "We've done great things at home this season, losing only once -- to Juventus -- and even that was only in the final minutes.
"I reckon we're going to beat Inter 2-1, but I'm going to score the second goal."
Iago Falque also voiced his admiration for Inter's Antonio Candreva, saying: "I like him a lot.
"I read that he delivers the most crosses in Serie A. He's a complete footballer. He helps his teammates score and he also gets around eight goals a season too."
