Inter Milan wingback Federico Dimarco feels that this evening’s draw with Napoli can’t put an end to the great run the team are on in Serie A.

The 26-year-old spoke to InterTV, via FCInterNews, after the Nerazzurri dropped points for the first time in the league since the start of 2024.

Inter didn’t quite bounce back from their elimination from the Champions League in the way they’d have liked to against Napoli.

It was hardly a bad performance from the Nerazzurri by any stretch of the imagination.

Against the reigning Italian champions, Inter put in an impressive first-half display. They were good value for their 1-0 advantage at halftime.

It was Matteo Darmian who scored Inter’s goal. The former Manchester United finished off a flowing team goal expertly.

Then in the second half, it looked as though Inter would see out that lead.

But then just after the eightieth minute, Napoli were able to take advantage of a switch-off by Inter on a corner kick.

It ended up being former Nerazzurri defender Juan Jesus who headed home the equalizer,

Federico Dimarco: Inter Can’t Let Napoli Draw Stop Months Of Good Work

Prior to this evening, Inter had won ten matches in a row in Serie A.

And even with this bump in the road, the Nerazzurri’s advantage at the top of the table still stands at an eye-watering fourteen points over city rivals AC Milan.

It is certainly not as though Inter are no longer overwhelming favourites to lift the Serie A title.

But the team must react to this draw. After the international break, it will be imperative to return to the form they had been in since the start of this year.

Dimarco said after the match that “We were playing against a strong team.”

“Then, at the end of the match, there are certain moments that can be decisive.”

The Italian international noted that “We were coming off the back of a match that went to extra time in Madrid.”

“It’s a draw. It can happen,” Dimarco said. “But we’re still certainly sorry about it.”

The wingback said that “We can’t let this draw stop the work that we’ve done for months now.”

“Now it’s time for the international break. And then when we come back, we have to come back even stronger.”
