Nerazzurri Vice-President Javier Zanetti is not taking Inter Milan winning the Serie A title for granted.

Speaking to Consenza Channel, via FCInterNews, the Inter executive emphasized taking things “one match at a time” despite the significant advantage that the team currently enjoy in the table.

At the moment, Inter are fourteen points clear at the top of the Serie A table.

With nine matches to go, that means that there are 27 points left to play for.

Therefore, if the Nerazzurri were to take fourteen points from their remaining matches, there would be no way for city rivals AC Milan to catch up with them at the summit.

And even with fewer than that, it is not exactly likely that the Rossoneri will win all of their nine remaining matches.

For this reason, it looks to be almost a forgone conclusion that Inter will win the title in the end.

The Nerazzurri have been the outstanding team in Serie A for virtually the entire season so far. And they will have as good a chance as ever to make good on that by securing the title.

Javier Zanetti Not Taking Inter Milan Serie A Title For Granted

Inter have not clinched anything yet, though.

The team still have nine tough matches to go. Serie A is never a straightforward league to win in, despite the way that the Nerazzurri have made it look this season.

And moreover, Inter have had their toughest patch in months over the last couple weeks heading into the international break.

First of all, the Nerazzurri crashed out of the Champions League.

They went out on penalties following a second leg defeat in their round of sixteen tie against Atletico Madrid.

Then, Inter let a 1-0 lead slip late on against reigning champions Napoli.

This was a timely reminder that Inter can never afford to become complacent.

Asked if he thinks the team will win the title in the end, Zanetti said that “We’re happy with the path that we’re on.”

“Now we want to finish it in the best way.”

“There are still nine matches to go,” the Inter Vice-President noted. “So we want to get over the line one match at a time.”
