Inter Milan have just managed to solidify their position at the top of the Italian Serie A standings thanks to the victory over Parma. However, coach Antonio Conte asked his players not to boast.
The duel titled the 25th Giornata of the Italian Serie A took place at the Stadio Ennio Tardini early in the morning WIB (05/03). Inter Milan itself won with a score of 2-1.
Two La beneamata goals were scored by Alexis Sanchez, respectively in the 54th minute and 62nd minute respectively. Meanwhile, the new host Parma was able to catch up with a goal from Hernani midway through the second half.
This victory is clearly important for Inter Milan, who are perched at the top of the standings. Now, the Nerazzurri lead with a six-point lead over AC Milan, and 10 points from Juventus, who are the champions of the competition.
Being at the top is indeed something new for Inter Milan, especially when the season is coming to an end. However, Conte asked his players not to be complacent, not to let their focus scatter for a second.
“We are in a very good position, of course a big improvement from last season,”
“However, we also know every game is a fight and we can drop points against anyone. That’s why we shouldn’t underestimate any opponent.” said Conte to Sky Sport Italia.
With the fact that there are still 13 games left, Inter Milan must not slip. The players must maintain their consistency in winning after victory until the end, or the title will be out of reach.
“We want to do our best. “If our best effort is that we are here at the end of the season, we will be very happy and proud, because it means we have made incredible leaps forward in a very short time,” he said.
Compared to AC Milan and Juventus, Inter Milan has the most chance of winning the championship trophy, considering that currently they no longer participate in the Coppa Italia and European competitions.
Next, the Nerazzurri will face a tough opponent, Atalanta.
