Inter Milan have earned a grade of 6.5/10 for their season as a whole from Italian media.
Today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, give the Nerazzurri the score on the basis of both their erratic, disappointing form in the league, and their heroics in the cup competitions.
Inter have certainly not had a dull campaign.
The Nerazzurri have had a rollercoaster season in the league. At times, this has even led to speculation that Simone Inzaghi could be at risk of being sacked, although he’s always responded to his critics on the pitch.
Inter Milan Take The Good With The Bad In 2022-23 Season
In Serie A, Inter have not been good enough, argue the Gazzetta.
The Nerazzurri had gone into this season among the favourites to win the Serie A title. Instead, the last flickers of a Scudetto charge died out months ago.
Inter get some credit for sparing their blushes with a third place finish. Finishing in the top four and qualifying for the Champions League was always the minimum objective.
However, the fact that a fifth or sixth place finish was ever at risk is a massive blemish on Inter’s record, argues the Gazzetta.
In the Champions League, on the other, Inter’s season could hardly have gone much better,
The Nerazzurri were drawn into a “group of death” with European giants Barcelona and Bayern Munich. However, they’ve defied their doubters to reach the final of the competition.
Triumphs in both the Supercoppa Italiana and Coppa Italia add a further gloss to Inter’s season.
Napoli Lead The Way In Serie A
Not very surprisingly, it is Serie A champions Napoli out in front in the Gazzetta’s rankings. The newspaper give the Partenopei a 10/10 score for their blistering campaign which saw them win the Scudetto for the first time in three decades.
Meanwhile, Lazio are just behind Napoli in the Gazzetta’s rankings, as they are in the Serie A table.
Monza take third spot for their overachieving season in their first ever Serie A campaign.
Defending champions AC Milan receive a 5.5/10 grade, however. The same is true of Juventus.
