Inter look to be right back in business in Serie A after their win over Napoli on Wednesday, with a boost in confidence and an “easier” fixture list to come on paper.
This is the view of today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who argue that the wind is now in the Nerazzurri’s sails if they choose to run with the momentum they’ve built up.
Inter badly needed a win against Napoli to prove that they’re still a force in Serie A and capable of challenging for the title over the second half of the season.
Accordingly, three points and inflicting defeat on the league leaders for the first campaign will have felt like a massive release of tension for Simone Inzaghi’s team.
No longer are the Nerazzurri playing with the weight of trying to live down some disappointing early-season losses in the league.
Moreover, the Gazzetta notes, Inter face what looks to be some winnable matches in the coming weeks, with the likes of Monza, Hellas Verona, Empoli, and Cremonese their next opponents in the league.
This could be exactly the scenario that Simone Inzaghi will have been dreaming of if he wants to go on a winning run similar to the one the team went on last season.
