Inter’s Defense The Best In Serie A Again With Milan Skriniar A Key Man, Italian Media Highlight

Inter have gotten back to having the best defensive record in Serie A after they kept a clean sheet against Hellas Verona in the same weekend that Napoli conceded three goals to Fiorentina.

This is noted in today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who highlight Milan Skriniar as the key man at the heart of the Nerazzurri’s defensive record.

Going into the latest round of fixtures, Inter had conceded one goal more than the Partenopei, having conceded 24 to the Neapolitans’ 23.

However, Inter saw out a clean sheet, their fourteenth of the season, whilst Napoli lost to Fiorentina in a 3-2 thriller which saw their total rise to 26 for the season.

The Nerazzurri have generally been able to rely on their defensive solidity barring a few wobbles this campaign, and even during their bad period of form in February and March they kept several clean sheets.

Inter kept Genoa off the scoresheet in a goalless draw before beating Salernitana 5-0, and both of their matches back from the international break against Juventus and Verona have seen them go without conceding.

At the heart of these recent successes have been sharp displays by Skriniar, who has hardly put a foot wrong to make sure that the team has sustained any pressure they’ve faced without allowing a goal.

The team effort and organization has also been crucial as it has been all season, but the Slovak has particularly shone as a leader at the back.
