Inter gave emphatic confirmation that they are back in their best form with their 3-0 win over AC Milan in the Coppa Italia semi-final second leg yesterday evening.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who argue that the Nerazzurri capped off a strong run of results since returning from the international break.
Inter’s run of bad form in February and March saw them lose their lead at the top of the Serie A table and get dumped out of the Champions League table, while they slumped to a goalless draw in the first leg of their Coppa Italia tie against Milan.
The task was clear for the Nerazzurri on their return from the international break, starting with Serie A matches against Juventus, Hellas Verona, and Spezia.
Three wins from three in the league, along with slip-ups by Milan and Napoli saw the Nerazzurri wrestle back control of their own fate in the Scudeto chase.
There was still the matter of the second leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final, however, with plenty of work do do after the 0-0 draw in the first leg.
Inter more than did what they had to do, seeing off their city rivals 3-0 to reach the final, and now they look to clearly have put their February and March downturn in the rearview mirror.
