Inter could be hoping that coach Simone Inzaghi’s excellent record in one-off finals will be a positive sign ahead of their Serie A clash with Napoli tomorrow evening.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who suggest that given that the match will be “like a final” for the Nerazzurri, the coach’s record in finals will be a positive sign for the Nerazzurri.
Whilst Inzaghi’s proficiency over the long haul has been cast in some doubt as he has yet to emerged victorious over a full league campaign, he has proven to be something of a knockout specialist.
Whilst the 46-year-old had lost his first final in charge of Lazio, a 2-0 loss at the hands of Juventus in the 2017 Coppa Italia final, he has won every final he’s faced since.
Inzaghi got his revenge over the Bianconeri in the 2017 Supercoppa Italiana final, and then won the Coppa Italiana with Lazio in 2019, beating Atalanta in the final.
The Biancocelesti faced Juventus again in the next season’s Supercoppa match, and once again prevailed over them.
Last season with Inter, the former Lazio coach won both the Supercoppa and Coppa Italiana finals with the Nerazzurri, beating the Bianconeri on both occasions.
Given that the table positions will mean that tomorrow’s match will have all the significance of a final for Inter, they could be hoping that their coach keeps his run alive.
