Inter Protect Opportunity to Win the Title in the Derby

The Scudetto has been headed to Inter for a while, but the Nerazzurri kept their hopes of adding insult to injury and clinching it the Derby thanks to the late Davide Frattesi goal against Udinese. They are 14 points clear of their cross-town rivals.

There’s no combination that would allow La Beneamata to seal it in the next round, Goal informs. They’ll face Cagliari, while the Rossoneri will take on Sassuolo. On the other hand, if the two teams produce the same result, they’ll have the chance to do so the following week.

If Inter win in the next round, they’ll have the chance to secure their 20th title against Milan in Round 33 no matter what. They’ll have to avoid stumbling against the Sardinians for that to happen. Instead, if their suitors had a slip-up, it wouldn’t even be necessary to beat them to triumph.

The Nerazzurri will have to handle the Rossoblù without Lautaro Martinez and Benjamin Pavard. They will miss such a contest due to yellow-card accumulation. On the other hand, that ensures they’ll be available for the Derby. They are hopeful Stefan De Vrij and Alessandro Bastoni will return from injury. Juan Cuadrado could also be ready after missing months following an Achilles surgery.

Inter became the first team to ever score uninterruptedly in the first 31 matchdays. They still have a shot at the all-time point record set by Antonio Conte’s Juventus in 2013/2014, but they’ll need to prevail every tilt to achieve that.
