Juventus’ defeat to Lazio yesterday has left Inter much further ahead in the league than the league table shows, according to a report in today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Corriere della Sera.
The report details how this weekend’s games between the top two teams in the league against the Roman teams have shown the differences in mentality and approach in the league. Inter may have suffered against Roma, but didn’t lose focus and kept a tight defence, ensuring that the Nerazzurri walked away with three points.
Juventus, on the other hand, suffered even more against Lazio and a weaker approach to the game cost them dearly, as they fell 3-1 to the Biancocelesti. Inter now remain top of the league table, two points ahead of the Bianconeri, the report highlights. For the first time in years, the discussion is no longer about who will achieve a top four finish, but instead who can fight the dominance in the Bianconeri and think about challenging for the league title.
