Inter coach Antonio Conte is incredibly keen to beat SPAL today, not only because he wants to keep up the chase on Juventus at the top of the league table, but also because it would break yet another Nerazzurri record, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
The report details how Inter’s win over Torino last weekend broke the record set by Giovanni Trapattoni in the 1988/89 season, who won ten games out of the first 12. Now Conte is hoping to break the record set by Aldo Olivieri in the 1950/51 season, who guided the Nerazzurri to 11 wins out of their first 13 games.
A victory against SPAL today would see the Nerazzurri win 12 out of their first 14 games, a new record for the club and one that would propel Antonio Conte into the club’s history books, the report highlights. Furthermore, as long as the Nerazzurri score against SPAL today, they will also break another record, scoring a goal in every single game in the first 14 of the season, breaking a record already set by the Nerazzurri last weekend in their win over Torino.
