Legendary former Inter defender Riccardo Ferri believes that the Nerazzurri can make a big impression in the derby against AC Milan this Sunday but that they can stand not to get three points.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, the former defender suggested that the match is a big opportunity for Inter more than it is a potential end to their hopes for the Scudetto.
Inter are seven points behind their city rivals at this point, with the Rossoneri having dropped only two points in their first eleven matches of the Serie A season, while Napoli are also level with Milan at the top.
The Nerazzurri’s next two matches are against the two league leaders, and they will see these matches as a major chance to gain ground on their rivals for the Scudetto.
Ferri sees this, but he does not think that the matches are must-win for his former club.
The former defender spoke about current Nerazzurri forward Joaquin Correa, stating that “Correa player more anarchic than the others, skip the man alone. He is a very technical player who if he bets you it becomes difficult then to stop him.”
Of the derby on Sunday he said, “The derby is an important match, but he is not do-or-die. Milan and Napoli are have started fast, but It’s still too early to talk about the title. Milan are a very competitive team, difficult to face. Difficult derby, often the results are dictated by episodes.”
“I hope there will be a real game. Inter will be playing with great attention, it’s a game where they can make a big step forward,” he concluded.
