Only Manchester City have picked up more points than Inter in Europe’s major leagues during the last 18 matches, an Italian media report has highlighted today.

Gazzetta dello Sport pointed out that Pep Guardiola’s side had picked up a sensational 50 points from the last 54 available, having won 16 and drawn twice to open up a 14-point lead in the Premier League.

Inter have meanwhile picked up 47 points from their last 54 and like Manchester City, they sit at the top of their table, in this case Serie A, with a six-point lead over AC Milan.

Antonio Conte’s side took a giant stride towards the club’s first league title in 11 years by beating Parma last night.

Atletico Madrid are third in Europe’s top five leagues during the last 18 games with 44 points collected, while Bayern Munich sit fourth with 40 points.

The report from the Milan-based news outlet went on to point out that for only the fourth time in the three-points-per-win era, Inter have at least 59 points after 25 games played.

On each of the three previous occasions – in the 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons – the Nerazzurri went on to win the Scudetto.
