Inter are starting to resemble another of Antonio Conte’s former title-winning teams, according to Antonio Cassano.

The Nerazzurri have the chance to open up an 11-point lead over AC Milan at the top of Serie A by beating Sassuolo in tonight’s rearranged fixture from matchday 27.

Cassano has made little secret of the fact he does not enjoy Inter’s style of play under Conte, but the former forward remains respectful of the job they’re doing.

Speaking on Christian Vieri’s Twitch TV channel on Monday, Bobo TV, Fantantonio said: “Inter have been solid since January 6 (when they lost 2-1 at Sampdoria).

“What’s more, their opponents are making lots of mistakes.

“It would take a ‘fracaso’ (disaster), like they say in Spain, for Inter to lose the league this year.

“I’m seeing an Inter side which reminds me of Conte’s first Juventus side.

“They know how to conduct themselves and bring the result home, which is what matters.”

Conte ended Juventus’ nine-year wait for a Serie A title during his first season in charge, the 2011-12 campaign.

He is now on course to end Inter’s own 11-year drought for a Scudetto, which dates back to Jose Mourinho’s historic treble-winning season in 2010.

Juventus, who will be hosting Napoli while Inter play Sassuolo tonight, slid 12 points adrift of their arch rivals on Saturday when they dropped points in a 2-2 draw at Torino.
