Former Juventus President Giovanni Cobolli believes that the pressure will be on Inter and Juventus to not only perform well but also to get the result when the two sides go head to head at the San Siro tomorrow.

Speaking to Italian news outlet L’Interista, the former Bianconeri executive gave the view that the Italian sporting press will heap pressure on both sides and that a loss would make life difficult for them regardless of how the match goes.

The Nerazzurri and the Biancocelesti both go into tomorrow’s match several points off of Serie A leaders Napoli and AC Milan, and they will know the risks of falling further behind.

Both coaches and sets of players will want to play at a high level, but ultimately the priority will be obtaining the result which will see them keep pace in the table.

Cobolli believes that this is encouraged by the way that the results are received in the Italian press, where the performance is much less important than the scoreline.

“Not winning would be tough for either side,” he said. “even if there would be time to recover.”

He went on that “The criticism, the press in Italy tends to judge the last result in a positive way if you win, very negatively if you lose. It’s not easy in terms of the image propagated by the press. There would therefore be an effect on players and fans.|

“In this way,” he concluded, “Italy is critical of a team in a very short time, while in other countries they might happen to hear applause after a defeat.”
