Legendary former Juventus and Italian national team player Alessandro Del Piero has shared his belief that Inter are serious candidates to go all the way and win the Serie A title this term.
Inter got their 2020/21 Serie A campaign off to a flyer as they edged a seven goal thriller against Fiorentina this past weekend 4-3 and are next in action on Wednesday when they take on newly promoted Benevento away from home and they could go joint top of the table with a win.
“Inter and Atalanta are serious candidates for the Scudetto,” Del Piero explained whilst present in the studios of Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia during their Sky Calcio Club show.
The 2006 World Cup winner then went on to speak about how Inter’s substitutes allowed them to come from behind to secure the win against Fiorentina.
“Inter’s five changes made a big difference. Having a bench like this is not bad. Inter have been good at fixing a game with five players like that. They have used the rules of the game in the best way.”
Del Piero, who is perhaps best known for his time at Juventus, then spoke on what he makes of the system that Inter used in the match against La Viola: “Inter always give the feeling of being able to score, the system they use creates a lot of chances.”
