Ten victories in a row, 19 in the last 22 matches, and 11 over the second, Milan, are the record numbers of Antonio Conte, who dreams of ousting the reign of Juventus, as he himself defined at the end of the match won 2 -1 with Sassuolo the nine consecutive league titles of the bianconeri. Numbers that now make you think that the Scudetto for Inter is no longer a question of if but of when the Nerazzurri will win their 19th title in history, 11 years after that of 2010, the year of the Triplete. And then, exactly, when could it happen?
With Milan an extra advantage
Calculations in hand, the Nerazzurri are 16 points from the Scudetto. With nine matches remaining, with 27 points available, Inter can therefore do it with five wins and a draw. In fact, at 87 points, the Nerazzurri could only be reached by Milan if Stefano Pioli’s team, now at 60, won nine games out of nine. The leaders would remain so by virtue of the goals scored in the direct matches: on 17 October 2020 2-1 for the Rossoneri and on 21 February 2021 3-0 for Conte’s team. And therefore thanks to this result that Inter would find themselves ahead of Milan in the event of equal points.
The dream 1 May
Now the next opponents of the Nerazzurri are Cagliari (Sunday 11 April, 12.30pm), Naples (April 18), Spice (April 21, midweek shift), Verona (25 April), Crotone (May 1). Winning them all, at best, Lukaku and his companions would win the championship on the day of the workers’ holiday, with four rounds to go. a great blow, which would not be a record anyway. In the past, in fact, Turin (1947-1948), Fiorentina (1955-56), Inter (2006-07) and Juventus (2014-2015 and 2018-2019) were able to triumph even to make it five days in advance.
Most likely the 9
Looking at the calendar, however, it seems easier it can be won on 9 May, three days from the end of the championship. That day Sampdoria will arrive at San Siro by Claudio Ranieri, the last team to beat Inter in this league, 2-1 with goals from former Candreva and Keita. Also on that Sunday Juventus-Milan is also scheduled in Turin and one of the two rivals will lose points. One thing for sure: Conte wants to quickly close the Scudetto. In the last three games I will face Roma (May 12, midweek shift), Juventus (May 16) e Udinese (May 23). And the former coach would like to take the field already with the 19 Scudetto in his pocket.
