The General Manager of Sicilia side Messina has suggested that if Inter loses against Napoli on Sunday then they are out of the Serie A title race, according to a report in the Italian media.
Whilst speaking to TMW, Pietro Lo Monaco explained the importance of the match that sees Inter come up against a team that are already seven points ahead in the Serie A standings.
“This is a match in which, should Napoli win, it would cut Inter out of the title race.”
Inter are fully aware that should a 10 point gap be created between them and the Azzurri, it will be incredibly hard to defend the Scudetto won last season under Antonio Conte.
If they win, though, the gap is just four points and Napoli have a much harder set of fixtures over the Christmas and New Year period than Inter do.
On Saturday evening, all eyes will be on AC Milan who are away at Fiorentina. They currently sit level on points with Napoli.
