Italian journalist Mario Sconcerti believes that even with their recent drop-off in form, Inter are still very much in the Serie A title race.

Writing in his column in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, Sconcerti argued that it would be a mistake for the Nerazzurri to think that they cannot get themselves out of the hole in which they’ve dug themselves.

The Nerazzurri’s fate is no longer in their own hands in the Scudetto race, as they will still be three points behind AC Milan and level with Napoli even if they are to win their game in hand.

However, despite the feeling that the momentum is all with their rivals, Inter have a chance to reverse course after the international break with many points still to play for.

Moreover, none of their rivals have clearly shown that they have the form to definitively take control of the title race during the run-in.

“Inter have lost any advantage they had with their game inhand, but it would be a big mistake for them to think that they’re in an unsolvable crisis,” Sconcerti writes.

“Inter are having a difficult time, but despite the damage they’ve inflicted on themselves they’re still in the hunt. It’s only necessary to understand that this is a different season,” he goes on.

“A year ago Milan were eleven points behind Inter with 63 points,” he continues, “now with just one point more they are clear in the lead.”

“Dropping points is acceptable as long as you understand why,” he continues. “Inter are now in a state of confusion. And it’s not helped by Inzaghi’s tenuous grip. His is missing flexibility, a strong charisma that shakes this frightened team.”

“Based on the quality of the teams, however, the title race remains open nevertheless,” he argues. “Milan struggled in Cagliari where Leao, Messias, and Giroud did not look convincing in the final third.”
