It is “fundamental” for Inter Milan to get a result against Serie A co-leaders AC Milan in Sunday’s Milan Derby, Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi said on Saturday. Seven points separate the third-placed Italian champions Milan, who has collected 31 out of 33 possible points and is only behind Napoli on goal difference.
Inter come into the game at San Siro in good form, with four wins and one draw in their last five games in all competitions. But Inzaghi realizes the importance of a game where defeat leaves them with a mountain to climb in the title race.
“We are doing great things, the numbers show. You have to congratulate Naples and Milan on their progress,” Inzaghi said at a press conference. “Winning tomorrow would increase our conviction, but we will all have to suffer together.”
“We have a great chance tomorrow. We started this series of matches badly (since the international break in October) with the defeat in Rome against Lazio, then we won (four) and drew,” he said. -he adds. “These results have given us great conviction, but tomorrow it is essential to obtain a result.”
Milan beat AS Roma 2-1 last weekend and remain unbeaten in the league this season. The result in Rome made them the fourth team in Serie A history to win 10 out of 11 games at the start of a league campaign, with Napoli being one of the others.
“In these games the standings are reset. We will have to do well in both phases, Milan and Napoli are having an unprecedented start to the season for 40 years and they deserve praise,” said Inzaghi. “They give very little, they have a great coach who I know well, and we will have to be very careful. We know that we are in great shape and that we can play a good game.”
