Udinese Striker Fernando Llorente: “Atalanta Making Huge Improvements, But Serie A’s Best Team Is Inter”

Inter are fully deserving of their eight-point lead at the top of Serie A, at least if you agree with Fernando Llorente.

Antonio Conte’s side have the chance to open up an 11-point lead over second-placed AC Milan by beating Sassuolo in tonight’s rearranged fixture from matchday 27.

Llorente played one season under Conte at Juventus and seems to believe Inter would be worthy champions.

Asked about Inter and Serie A’s other ‘nerazzurri’ in Atalanta, the Udinese striker told Sport Mediaset: “Atalanta are a great team who play from memory.

“They’ve been working with the same players and the same coach (Gian Piero Gasperini) for many years now.

“They’re making huge improvements and are a great side – but the best team this year is Inter.”

Inter extended their lead at the top even further over the Easter weekend, taking advantage of AC Milan’s draw with Sampdoria with victory over Bologna.

Juventus also dropped points on Saturday with a 2-2 draw at Torino in the Derby della Mole, leaving the Bianconeri 12 points adrift with 10 games to go.

Inter will be without the suspended Alessandro Bastoni and Marcelo Brozovic against Sassuolo tonight after both picked up their fifth bookings of the season at Bologna.

Conte’s side are seeking a tenth straight win in the league, something Inter haven’t achieved since the 2006-07 season.
