Inter Fall One Victory Short of Juventus’ Staggering Domestic Record

Simone Inzaghi’s Inter have brilliantly matched up to expectations from their previous Scudetto wining season from under Antonio Conte’s leadership. The Nerazzurri are winter champions, having registered 46 points from 19 matchdays – four more than second placed Milan.

2021 has been a domestically terrific calendar year for the Milan natives – as they secured their first ever Serie A title since the Jose Mourinho era. Throughout the year, the Nerazzurri have won 32 games – a staggering record but still one less than Juventus from the 2016 season under current manager Massimiliano Allegri.

Juventus then, managed to win 33 league games, as they secured back-to-back Scudetti in an era full of Bianconeri dominance.

This season, Inter have scored 49 goals from the first 19 games, a feat only match by Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta only once during the last 60 years, during the 2019/20 season. However, the Nerazzurri have a remarkable 104 goals in 2021 – the fifth highest goal tally in a calendar year, behind Milan’s 105 goals (1949), Torino’s 111 (1947) and 114 goals (1948) and Milan’s 120 goals (1950).
