Inter’s critics should take a look at the facts before trying to discredit the Nerazzurri’s spectacular league campaign, a report in the Italian media argued today.
Antonio Conte’s side are struggling to carry favour with certain sections of Italy’s press, who believe Inter are playing ‘bad’ football and are not as special as they’re made out to be.
As FcInter1908.it pointed out, however, Inter have the joint-biggest lead over second place in Europe’s top five leagues (11 points), and the greatest points-per-game average with 2.46.
They also have the joint-highest points total with Manchester City, 74, despite having played two games fewer than the runaway Premier League leaders.
Pep Guardiola’s side are also 11 points clear in England – but unlike Inter in Serie A, their closest challengers Manchester United still have a game in hand, meaning they could yet cut the gap to eight points.
Inter are only beaten in terms of goals scored, with Bayern Munich boasting 80 compared to their 69, and goals conceded, with Ligue 1 leaders Lille having only conceded 18 (Inter have let in 27).
Come se la cava l’Inter rispetto alle squadre che sono al vertice nei migliori campionati d’Europa? Bene, decisamente bene ⚫️🔵 pic.twitter.com/YtCWLxyw2l
