Torino’s win against Brescia before the international break has given them confidence that they can beat Antonio Conte’s Inter tonight, in an important game for both teams, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
The report details how the Granata, under the guidance of former Inter coach Walter Mazzarri, have played much better in their last two games against Brescia and Juventus and will be looking to continue their run of strong form against the Nerazzurri tonight, even with a reduced squad.
Inter, on the other hand, have the opportunity to overtake the Bianconeri today if they fail to beat Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta, the report highlights. Conte appreciates the strength of the Granata and has placed full focus on tonight’s game, not even looking ahead to next week’s Champions League clash against Slavia Prague, even if that game could decide the fate of the Nerazzurri in the competition.
Furthermore, the report touches on the importance of both games to Conte’s first season in charge with the Milanese club. A victory in today’s game will see the Nerazzurri continue their strong start to the season and keep up the pressure on the reigning champions Juventus. Also, next week’s Champions League game against the Czech side is a game with tens of millions at stake, as the money gained from the competition is one of the biggest sources of income for clubs across Europe.
