Inter defender Danilo D’Ambrosio knows that getting a win over Venezia this evening will be important to making sure that the momentum is kept up for the season.
Speaking to InterTV before the match, the 33-year-old emphasized winning the final match before the international break being important to ending the Nerazzurri’s January on the right note.
Inter have had an eventful January, seeing their first match back against Bologna postponed before a win against Lazio in Serie A, a draw away to Atalanta, and dramatic extra time wins against Juventus and Empoli in the Supercoppa and Coppa respectively.
Now, one more hurdle awaits Inter in the form of Venezia, who travel to the San Siro in search of a result to help them in the relegation battle.
For the Nerazzurri, this match represents one last opportunity to take three points before heading into the break and then facing the likes of AC Milan, Napoli, and Liverpool in massive fixtures.
“It’s the last match before the break,” D’Ambrosio said, “and then we return in two weeks for another massive run of games.”
“The important thing is to finish this mini-tournament with three points,” he went on. “We’ve never let ourselves get affected by playing before or after our rivals, we give it our all regardless of what results the other teams get.”
The defender continued that “The fans have always been right there with us and they always will be, they showed it once again in the Coppa Italia and they’ll certainly show it again today.”
