Inter Milan are fighting for the Serie A title, but must find solutions to win when they are not playing as well as their main rivals, AC Milan.
The defending champions sit in third place, before hosting eighth-place Fiorentina on Saturday, four points behind neighbors Milan, and there’s a match for Inter.
Milan won the last two games, although they were not at their best, while Inter drew twice in the last 3 games against Genoa and Torino, although they were dominant but lacked the decisive touch.
Although Inter have not been hit hard in the fierce fight, with four teams having a real chance of clinching the title, Simone Inzaghi’s side cannot waver any longer.
“In order to win the league, the performance has to improve,” Inzaghi told DAZZON after the last draw in Turin.
And he added: “We lose energy and players due to injuries at crucial moments of the season, but that is no excuse, we have to play ten league finals along with the cup.”
He continued: “Now we need to get our energy back and some good results, there is physical and mental fatigue, but we are Inter and we have to improve.”
Fiorentina managed to revive their chances of qualifying for European competitions after suffering a defeat in their last 6 games, so they will not be easy prey at the San Siro on Saturday.
Milan will travel to Cagliari as Stefano Pioli’s side look to continue their path to their first league title since 2011.
This will be the start of a four-match series for Milan against teams from the bottom half of the league and a chance to overtake their rivals at the top.
Juventus were eliminated from the Champions League round of 16 for the third successive time, losing 3-0 at home to Villarreal on Wednesday.
But locally, there is hope for Juventus, who have overcome a poor start to the season to get back into the title race.
Before losing to Villarreal, Juventus suffered a loss in 21 games in all competitions, seven points behind Milan, and will host bottom-ranked Salnitana on Sunday.
Roma play atop the capital against neighbors Lazio on Sunday, while Napoli, second on goal difference to Inter, play Udinese in an early game on Saturday.
