Former Inter defender Graziano Bini believes that the Nerazzurri are still very much in the Scudetto race despite having failed to beat AC Milan in the derby on Sunday evening.

Speaking to Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, the 66-year-old gave the view that his former side are still in the hunt to defend last season’s crown, while he also spoke about the waning form of striker Lautaro Martinez in front of goal.

Inter were not able to cut the deficit on their city rivals in the massive head-to-head derby clash, with the Rossoneri quickly cancelling out their brief advantage in a match which finished 1-1 and saw the Nerazzurri remain seven points behind their city rivals as well as Napoli in the Serie A table.

The Nerazzurri looked to have done everything but score, however, and have been in strong enough form for much of the season that they could still fight all the way to the end to defend last season’s Scudetto.

Bini stated that “I enjoyed the game greatly, it was played well by both teams. Given the missed penalty and other occasions, it seems to me that Inter managed something more. Of course, if you don’t score a goal, there’s no point in complaining.”

On Martinez’s missed penalty he stated that “I don’t know, he’s at a time when he can’t score, but it’s happened to all the great strikers. These things also happened to Boninsegna, Altobelli, Gigi Riva. He’s playing a lot. Now, however, he doesn’t score, perhaps even into an empty net.”

On the Scudetto favourites he said that “I see Inter still a step above the others. I say Inter, Napoli and Milan.”

He clarified that they can still recover the seven-point gap from the top, saying that “There are still 27 games left until the end.”
