Inter are about to begin a potentially decisive fortnight for their season, according to a report in the Italian media today.
As per Corriere dello Sport’s print edition, the Nerazzurri will take on Juventus in the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final tie tomorrow, before two crucial fixtures at San Siro in Serie A.
Inter will play host to Lazio on February 14 before the Derby della Madonnina against AC Milan the following Sunday.
The Rome-based publication argued that while it was true that winning the Serie A title remained the main ambition, it would be wrong for Antonio Conte not to take tomorrow’s cup match against Juve seriously given that Inter are only one match away from a final.
While their 2-1 defeat in the first leg makes things particularly complicated for Inter, who must score at least twice to have any chance of progression, the report highlights the fact that the result did not accurately reflect how the match went.
