In today’s print edition, Gazzetta dello Sport suggest that Antonio Conte’s Inter have an extra weapon compared to the side that Conte inherited at Juventus.
That extra weapon is the attack he has at his disposal at Inter. Strike partners Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez have a combined 30 goals between them this season, 23 of which have come in league play.
It was due to having this attack that Conte was able to record his first win away to Napoli as a manager and it was a win that put an end to Inter’s 23 year run without one in the league at the San Paolo.
Whilst Inter ran out 3-1 winners thanks to a brace from Lukaku and goal from Lautaro, the first time Conte took his Juventus side to the San Paolo, they also found themselves 3-1 up but blew their lead and had to settle for a point as they drew 3-3.
Inter do however not have the same quality in the midfield and need to grow in this regard. Matias Vecino and Roberto Gagliardini were both poor but Stefano Sensi and Nicolo Barella were both able to make returns from injury as substitutes.
