Toronto FC star Federico Bernardeschi explains why his former club Juventus stands a chance in the title race despite facing an incredible Inter Milan side.
The Nerazzurri are currently leading the Serie A charts by four points. They took full advantage of the Bianconeri’s slip in Genoa to extend their lead on top of the table.
Simone Inzaghi finally broke his curse by beating his former side at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday by two unanswered goals.
Lautaro Martinez pounced on a terrible backpass from Adam Marusic to break the deadlock in the first half.
The Biancocelesti tried to drag themselves back to the encounter in the second period. However, Marcus Thuram smashed their hopes by doubling Inter’s lead with a low drive that went past Ivan Provedel.
Aside from the points tally, all stats highlight the Nerazzurri’s superiority over the rest of the field, including the number of goals scored and conceded.
Yet, Benardeschi argues that Juventus remain in contention, mainly due to their winning mentality.
Nevertheless, the 29-year-old admits that Inzaghi has a fabulous squad at his disposal.
“Inter have an incredible squad on paper. They are a complete team,” said the Euro 2020 winner in his interview with Sport Mediaset via FcInter1908.
“Inzaghi has players who have accumulated vital experience at the international level.
“However, Juventus have an elusive DNA that not everyone has. Perhaps no one else has it. It will be a good fight until the end.”

Bernardeschi represented the Bianconeri between 2017 and 2022. However, his spell in Turin was underwhelming overall. The winger never managed to fulfill the initial promise shown during his early days at Fiorentina.

With defending champions Napoli unable to replicate last season’s success and Milan struggling for consistency, Juventus emerged as Inter’s main rival for the Italian thrown.
The two sides already clashed heads this term at the Allianz Stadium in Turin. The encounter ended in a 1-1 draw with Lautaro Martinez responding to Dusan Vlahovic’s opener.
The two arch-rivals will cross paths once more on February 4th at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium. This meeting could have major implications on the title race, depending on the two clubs’ status by that point.
