Inter Milan will know exactly what they have to do in the six matches that they play between the October and November breaks.
Today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, highlight the Nerazzurri’s aims over the coming month or so.
For the past week and change, Inter’s season has been on pause along with the rest of club football.
The Nerazzurri had a somewhat mixed last couple weeks prior to the break.
In Serie A. Inter’s strong start to the season ended as they dropped five points in three matches heading into the break.
On the other hand, in the Champions League things looked much more positive. The Nerazzurri put their rough opening day draw against Real Sociedad behind them with an impressive victory over Benfica.
Therefore, Inter have given themselves a couple of tasks over the coming weeks.
Inter Pursuing Both Domestic & European Goals Between October & November Breaks
In the league, Inter will know what they have to do.
Given that the dropped points prior to the break saw them fall two points behind AC Milan, the Nerazzurri will be hoping to catch up.
At the very least, Inter cannot afford to lose further ground on the Rossoneri.
And there is also the matter of keeping teams like Juventus and Napoli at bay behind them.
There are matches against Torino, Roma, Atalanta, and Frosinone.
Inter will obviously want maximum points – but, failing that, the aim will surely be to at least keep pace in their Serie A title tilt.
Beyond that, however, there are also two matches against Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League. They break up the league commitments.
Inter have a bit of a margin error after their win against Benfica. But not much.
Therefore, for the Nerazzurri the aim will be at least four points.
For Inter, there will be a desire to head into the next international break a month from now not feeling like qualification for the knockout rounds of Europe’s top club competition is in too much jeopardy.
