Legendary former Inter defender Beppe Bergomi believes that Inter have done a good job to defeat tough opposition in the form of Empoli and Udinese in their past two matches.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, the Nerazzurri legend commended his former team for getting the better of two challenging opponents while rotating their squad significantly.
Empoli have done well since coming up from Serie B as champions, sitting midtable and even claiming a major scalp in the form of Juventus who they defeated on the second matchday of the season.
However, the Nerazzurri put in a professional display to get three points from a tough away trip to Aurelio Andreazzoli’s high-pressing outfit.
Inter faced a different sort of challenge when they hosted a compact and organized Udinese team yesterday evening, but once again they found the solutions, keeping another clean sheet and taking three vital points.
Bergomi believes that these matches were not as easy as the Nerazzurri made them look, and that the results reflect very strong performances.
“Inter come off of two good match now have the derby and then Napoli,” he said. “Farris identified the team’s problems, Empoli and Udinese are not easy games but they dealt with them well with the rotations.”
He went on that “Inter have been patient and this it’s important. I don’t know if they’re the favourites, the two teams in front of them have a seven point advantage, now they have two games against Milan and Napoli to get back in it. Head-to-head clashes haven’t turned out so well, but they missed a penalty against Atalanta and dominated for sixty minutes against Lazio.”
