AC Milan are hoping to overtake Juventus in the Serie A table, but Inter Milan now look to be well off in the distance.

Today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, via FCInterNews, highlight the shifting dynamic at the top of the Serie A table – but note that Inter are well and truly the front-runners.

Just two or three weeks ago, the Serie A title race looked to be a contest between Inter and Juventus.

Moreover, the margins at the top looked very slim indeed.

The Nerazzurri and the Bianconeri had been separated by margins of no more than a point or two for weeks.

And Juventus even had the opportunity to wrestle top spot away from their Derby d’Italia rivals. Albeit with the Nerazzurri having one or two games in hand.

AC Milan Aim To Overtake Juventus – But Inter Free & Clear

The situation has changed dramatically due to a sequence of wretched results for Juventus.

The marquee clash with Inter at the start of this month always looked like a potential turning point. And indeed, Inter’s convincing win in the Derby d’Italia gave them a huge boost.

But even more impactful have been the results for the Bianconeri before and after that match.

A draw with Empoli and a loss to Udinese bookended the Derby d’Italia for Juventus.

The fact that both of these results came at home made them all the more damaging.

And then, yesterday, yet another match saw the Bianconeri drop points against a team in the bottom five places in the table. Max Allegri’s men drew 2-2 away to Hellas Verona.

This was yet another fortuitous result for Inter – who had decimated relegation-battlers Salernitana the previous day.

But now, it was arguably an even more significant result from Milan’s perspective.

The Rossoneri can now move ahead of Juventus in second spot in the table if they can beat Monza this evening.

The sense of jeopardy around that second spot looks far greater than it did just a couple weeks ago. This is no small matter, particularly considering that it would guarantee Supercoppa Italiana participation next season.

But at the summit, there is less jeopardy than ever.

Juventus and Milan may be set for a bitter, closely-fought scrap over the coming weeks.

But Inter increasingly appear out of sight for all of their rivals in Serie A.
