High-Flying Inter on Record Pace, Start Counting Days

Inter are marching at a blazing speed, having won 22 out of 26 matches. They are on track to do better than Napoli last season and could even threaten the all-time point record (102) set by Antonio Conte’s Juventus should they keep it up until the end. Although, they’d have to win almost every game to smash it.

Per Sky, the Nerazzurri hold a narrow lead over the title-winning Partenopei after 26 matchdays. They have the same amount of victories but one fewer loss. They are riding an eight-game winning streak. The longest one by the Campanian side lasted 11 fixtures in 2022/2023.

Inter have scored seven more goals than last year’s Napoli and conceded two fewer at this point of the campaign. Their advantage over Juventus ballooned to 12 points following the victory in the make-up game against Atalanta.

The Nerazzurri are already eyeing the Scudetto. With 36 points up for grabs, their magic number is 25. They could potentially seal it on two meaningful dates: on May 5th versus Sassuolo, redeeming their 2002 collapse versus Lazio, or in the Derby against Milan on April 21st, should their chasers stumble a few times beforehand. They are set to beat their crosstown rivals to the second gold star, which signifies the 20th title berth.

Following their latest triumph, Simone Inzaghi holds the best point average in the history of Inter, 2.17, a smidgen better than José Mourinho and Roberto Mancini (2.12) and Conte (2.11).
