Inter Milan have been a “steamroller” in Serie A ever since their turnaround in form last April.
This is the view in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.
Inter endured a horrific run of form last spring.
In the second half of March extending into April, the Nerazzurri went on a five-match run which saw them took just a solitary point.
There weren’t just losses to teams like Juventus and Fiorentina. Inter also fell to defeat against Spezia and Monza, and surrendered a lead late on away to Salernitana.
That period cast huge doubts about this Inter team, and about Simone Inzaghi’s ability to lead them.
Inter Become A Serie A “Steamroller” Since April
With Inter out of the top four places eight matches from the end of the season, it would be an understatement to say that a response was needed.
And that was exactly what the Nerazzurri produced.
Inter won seven of their eight matches to close out the season. This saw them secure a third-place finish.
That, along with the fact that the Nerazzurri reached last season’s Champions League final, raised expectations for the start of this campaign.
And so far Inter have lived up to them.
The Nerazzurri have dropped a total of five points over the opening eleven matches of the season.
They have added a home defeat at the hands of Sassuolo and a draw against Bologna to last season’s loss away to champions Napoli.
But otherwise, it’s been nine wins, to add to the seven that rounded off last league season.
The Gazzetta note that over a nineteen-match stretch, Inter have collected 49 points.
That puts the Nerazzurri on pace for 98 points, certainly more than enough to finally get their hands on the Serie A title under Simone Inzaghi.
Of course, there is still a very long way to go. But the momentum is certainly there behind Inter.
