At the moment, Inter Milan can’t seem to stop winning matches – and it’s meant that the gap at the top of the Serie A table is now an “abyss.”

This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

Yesterday’s match away to Bologna was hardly the most convincing one that Inter have played across their thirteen-match winning streak in 2024.

And it was never likely to be.

For one thing, Bologna are certainly one of the tougher opponents Inter have faced this year.

The Rossoblu are deservedly flying high in the Serie A table, currently sitting in fourth spot. They have made the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara into one of the division’s toughest away pitches.

Then, there was the question of where exactly Inter’s focus would be yesterday.

The Nerazzurri have had one eye on the second leg of their Champions League round of sixteen tie against Atletico Madrid this coming week.

And the fact that, prior to kickoff yesterday, Inter’s advantage in the Serie A table perhaps meant that a win was not strictly necessary.

Inter Can’t Stop Winning – Gap In Serie A Now An “Abyss”

Inter played with a few notable changes to the team yesterday, perhaps reflecting the fact that they had one eye on the match against Atletico.

First of all, there were no appearances for Lautaro Martinez, Benjamin Pavard, or Federico Dimarco. These key starters neither played from the start or the bench.

Then there were returns to the starting eleven for Marcus Thuram, Hakan Calhanoglu, and Francesco Acerbi.

The trio were playing their way back to peak fitness ahead of the match against Atletico.

By the end of the match, substitutions meant that there were just four regular Inter starters on the pitch.

And an injury to Marko Arnautovic meant that the Nerazzurri finished the match with ten men.

But Inter held out. They bent without breaking defensively, and did enough in an attacking sense to merit their goal in the first half.

The end result was three more points to an Inter side that look to be unstoppable.

This is a kind of consistency that rivals like AC Milan and Juventus have looked nowhere near finding. And that is why Inter’s lead at the top of the table is getting close to twenty points.
