Inter defender Francesco Acerbi feels that the Nerazzurri’s priority must be to transfer their Champions League form into Serie A.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN ahead of the team’s Serie A match against Juventus, via FCInterNews, the 35-year-old stressed the necessity of gaining ground and becoming more consistent in the league.
Inter’s season has certainly had its shares of ups and downs, but in Europe they have had more than their share of the former up to this point.
In the league, however, it has been hard for the Nerazzurri to build any momentum, as every positive moment seems to be interrupted by yet another slip-up that’s not too far around the corner.
Accordingly, the most important thing for Inter over the remainder of the season will be to make it so that their league form more closely resembles that in European competition, starting with Juventus this evening.
“We can’t afford to drop more points,” Acerbi said, “we’ve had too many ups and downs.”
“We’ve been doing well in Europe, but now we have to do the same in the league, where at the moment we haven’t been at the same level,” he added.
