Eight teams are within six points of each other after seven games in Serie A, a unique circumstance, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
The report details how, back in the 2011/12 season, nine teams were within six points of each other after the start of the season, with Udinese at the top of the table.
This season, AC Milan is currently at the top of the table with 17 points, with Sassuolo two points behind them.
Behind the top two, Napoli and Roma have 13 points, Juventus and Atalanta have 13 and Inter and Hellas Verona have 12.
Lazio, Sampdoria and Cagliari are all close behind, the report continues, showing how tight the league table is currently. The Covid-19 pandemic is having a clear effect on the season, and the race for the top four will be incredibly close.
Inter’s next game is against strugglers Torino tomorrow.
