Inter can only consider yesterday’s 2-2 draw at Roma as two points dropped, according to the Nerazzurri’s legendary former striker Roberto Boninsegna.
Antonio Conte’s side went behind at the Stadio Olimpico but managed to turn things in their favour after goals from Milan Skriniar and Achraf Hakimi.
Inter looked set to get back to winning ways having lost to Sampdoria earlier on in the week but they could not see out the win.
A tactical change invited pressure and Roma’s efforts eventually paid off as Gianluca Mancini scored late on to rescue the Giallorossi a point from the match.
“Roma-Inter was a wonderful match, in the end Roma managed to equalise and could have even won,” Boninsegna remarked in an interview with Italian radio station Radio Bianconera today.
“It was certainly a case of two points thrown away for the Nerazzurri as they had dominated for half an hour.”
Boninsegna was then asked about this weekend’s big match between Inter and Juventus and the hotly anticipated race for the Serie A title, which has been the most competitive title race in years.
“I was born an Inter fan, I’ll say it first. I played in a parish and as a child I had the Inter shirt, I always went to San Siro to see the team.”
He then went on to add: “It’s a very classic match, sometimes I care for the team that is behind in order to see the final rush between Inter and Juventus, even if this year there is AC Milan who have entered the fight for top spot.”
Inter head into Sunday’s match three points behind AC Milan at the top of Serie A and need to beat Juventus to keep pressure on the Rossoneri.
First, however, they play Fiorentina in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia on Wednesday.
