Legendary former AC Milan coach Arrigo Sacchi feels that Juvnetus “have understood that they’re inferior to Inter Milan.”

The former coach analyzed the Bianconeri’s surprise defeat to Udinese yesterday, via FCInterNews. He also made clear that Inter cannot become complacent despite their now sizable advantage.

Juventus made a big stumble yesterday.

Playing in front of their home fans at the Allianz Stadium, the Bianconeri fell to a 0-1 defeat against relegation-battling Udinese.

It was a match where Juventus would have felt that victory was just about the only acceptable result.

Inter’s win over Roma earlier in the weekend had left the Bianconeri seven points adrift.

This came after the Nerazzurri had also beaten Juventus in the Derby d’Italia last Sunday.

But with a win yesterday, Juventus would have cut the gap to just four points again. That would have certainly put the pressure on Inter.

But instead, the Nerazzurri’s seven-point advantage remains. And that is before considering the game in hand that they have over their closest rivals the Bianconeri.

Sacchi: Juventus Understood They’re Inferior To Inter

As far as the Bianconeri’s loss yesterday, Sacchi said that “I have to say that I think yesterday’s defeat was the result of the loss a week prior.”

“At the San Siro, against Inter.”

“It just seems as though something was in the air after that,” the former coach suggested.

Sacchi continued that “At the San Siro, Allegri’s players gave their all. And they understood that they’re inferior to Inter.”

“These are the kinds of matches that leave their mark on you,” the former coach continued.

“Physically, and in terms of morale.”

“Once they realized that they were not likely to win the Scudetto race, they perhaps let their guard down a little,” Sacchi said of Juventus.

“Furthermore, Juve have a very young team,” he added. ‘There’s not much experience.”

“There are no real leaders in the squad. And in the long run, that makes a difference.”

And Sacchi also had words of caution for Inter at the top. “You can never rest easy when your destiny still depends on a ball that’s yet to be kicked.”

“Of course, seven points is a good gap to have at the top,” he went on.

“But this is not the time to be thinking about managing that advantage. On the contrary, it’s the right time to push even harder on the accelerator to make that decisive push.”
