Fixture list smiling at Inter

Inter sit top of Serie A with a nine-point gap down to Milan at second and 10 above Juventus, and the fixture list smiles at the Nerazzurri coach Antonio Conte.

This Saturday, Sassuolo arrive for a big game at San Siro, but first the Neroverdi must recover the match against Torino, as their initial appointment was rescheduled due to the coronavirus outbreak at the Granata.

Inter have no other commitments, as they are out of the Coppa Italia and European football, meaning the Beneamata will be able to solely focus on maintaining the gap down to their rivals in the League.

After the upcoming international break, Inter play Bologna and Cagliari, whilst the first of a few key games will come against Napoli in Week 31 on April 18.

Juventus face Atalanta in Bergamo the same round of fixtures and could turn out to be a decisive week in the Scudetto battle this term, as Milan play Genoa.

The Old Lady are 10 points behind Inter in Serie A, but have to recover the match against Napoli from October last year, and it could possibly shrink to seven.

They are both helped by the South American World Cup qualifiers being frozen due to coronavirus and Inter players like Lautaro Martinez and Alexis Sanchez will be able to rest and avoid long trips before a crucial run-in.

Inter will be hoping to have maintained the gap down to their rivals ahead of the three last games of this year’s campaign, as their last three appointments include a home match against Roma and a trip to Juventus for a direct clash with their rivals.

In their 11 remaining games, six of them are against opponents currently in the top half of the standings, including Sassuolo, Hellas Verona and Udinese at eight, ninth and 10th respectively.
