Former Udinese and Atalanta coach Stefano Colantuono discussed this season’s title race between Inter, Juventus and Lazio in an interview with Italian media outlet TuttoMercatoWeb earlier today.
“Lazio? They will last. I was already talking about them a few months ago and we all wondered if they would last. We’ve arrived in March and Lazio are still there to fight for the league title. Juve have an obligation to win, Inter have started a winning streak with Conte and are fighting hard.”
The Coronavirus emergency has caused some games to be postponed or delayed, with Inter missing two games so far due to postponements. The first, the game against Sampdoria, still doesn’t have a date yet to be played, whilst the Nerazzurri’s postponed Derby d’Italia against Juventus will be played this weekend. This means that Lazio are currently top of the league table after playing 26 games, sitting two points ahead of Juventus.
The Bianconeri have only played 25 games and so can return to the top of the table should they beat Inter tomorrow. The Nerazzurri have played one game less than the Turin based club, and so are eight points behind the Roman club. Lazio’s next game is against Atalanta next Sunday.
