MDP Live - Former Inter Milan and Napoli midfielder, Salvatore Bagni assesses the Inter vs Napoli match is the decisive match for the Scudetto this season.
In an interview with Corriere dello Sport, former Inter Milan and Napoli midfielder Salvatore Bagni assessed the Inter vs Napoli match will be the decisive match for the Scudetto this season.
"Whoever wins on Saturday will be the champion of Italy. If Inter do it, they can start to build a big advantage, because they still have one game left," said Bagi.
"If Napoli manage to win that game, they will take points away from their main rivals, and force them to win other games, including the match against Bologna later," he continued.
"Il Partenopei will reduce Inter's sense of certainty and put them in a position where they are chasing and cannot make mistakes or slow down." he concluded.
Inter itself is currently in first position in the temporary standings with 53 points. In second and third positions, filled by Napoli and AC Milan. Both have 52 points, but Inter still have a game in hand.
Seeing the tight competition at the top, it is very possible this competition will run until the end of the season. Slip once, the impact can be very fatal, it can even make them thrown out of the competition for the Scudetto this season.
Inter is clearly not in an ideal position, considering that at the moment they still have to play in the Champions League and Coppa Italia. With a limited squad, Simone Inzaghi must be smart in doing rotations.
