Italian Serie A sparks up as Conte’s side Inter Milan visit Torino
The Italian Serie A continues as the battle for the Scudetto pace up as leaders Inter Milan visit relegation-threatened Torino.
Inter will travel to Stadio Olimpico Grande, Torino, looking to extend their winning streak to 7 matches in arrow. Andrea Conte seeks to exploit the tough rivalry match between second-place AC Milan and Napoli to go 9 points clear.
On the other hand, Torino coach Davide Nicola has urged his side to approach the game with conviction.
“Inter are not there by chance and it is tough for everyone. We must be hungry to compete against the top team. We must believe in ourselves and to try to get the most out of it,” Nicola urged.
He declared, “We need to play as a team, they are a strong squad with a coach that I respect. It is difficult for Inter to drop points but we want it and need it. They do well in all phases and have a great mentality, but we have prepared ourselves to try to cause problems.”
“There is nothing to lose but it is an opportunity. There is no difference between Inter, Real Madrid, or Sassuolo. I think only of tomorrow and being plucky, with the desire to make the most of it,” he added.
Inter has an upper hand against Torino, having won all three of their most recent Serie A visits to Torino.
Meanwhile, AC Milan is welcoming their rivals Napoli in a late kickoff as they trail inter. AC Milan has also geared up to keep up the pace since the Milan Derby loss to inter, maintaining the gap at 6 points apart.
Also, third-place Juventus are visiting Cagliari four days after crashing out of the European to tier UEFA Champions League. Juve will have to put behind the European woes and bounce back against Cagliari to keep the Title hopes.
In other Serie A matches, AS Roma will travel to meet Parma while Bologna is the host to Sampdoria.
