Inter coach Antonio Conte has his side ahead of arch rivals Juventus despite having an inferior squad, at least in the eyes of noted Italian journalist Sandro Piccinini.

The Nerazzurri are currently in second place in the Serie A standings at the halfway stage of the 2020-21 season and they hold a five-point gap over Juventus, who are fourth with a game in hand.

The two sides met for the first time this season two weekends ago and it was Conte’s side who came out on top of rookie coach Andrea Pirlo’s Juve, running out comfortable 2-0 winners as they put in the perfect performance to secure a first Derby d’Italia win since 2016.

“Pirlo has a better squad than Inter and is behind them in the standings, but he won the Super Cup and is still in the running in Europe,” Piccinini remarked while present in the studios of Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia.

“Conte with a lesser squad than Juve is ahead in the standings, but has the big wound of his elimination in the Champions League “.

The Nerazzurri and Bianconeri are due to meet next on May 16 in one of the final games of the Serie A season but they could potentially meet again beforehand in the Coppa Italia semi-finals, provided they both win their quarter-finals.

Inter face AC Milan tomorrow night with Juventus hosting Serie B side SPAL on Wednesday.
