Simone Inzaghi admits that Napoli cannot catch up.
Inter Milan drew 0-0 with Sampdoria in the 22nd round of Italian Serie A in the 2022-23 season held at Luigi Ferraris in Genoa, Italy on the 14th at 4:45 am (Korean time). With one point, Inter Milan remained in second place in the league.
Despite leading the game, he failed to score. In this game, Inter Milan’s possession was 65%, and the number of shots Inter Milan attempted was 18 times. However, there were only 5 shots on target and no goals. In the second half, Inter Milan put in Marcelo Brozovic, Edin Dzeko, and Denzel Doomfrey to become more aggressive, but ended the game without scoring.
The difference between Napoli and first place Napoli is 15 points. It is a difference that can be said to have made the competition for the championship difficult. Moreover, comparing the atmosphere of the two teams, it can be seen that points are not everything. Napoli is winning in almost every game and has the power to solve it with individual abilities if the game is not solved, while Inter Milan is not only inconsistent in its performance, but also helplessly draws or loses when the game does not go in the desired direction, like the match against Sampdoria. Games are frequent.
Director Inzagi was well aware of this. After the draw against Sampdoria, coach Inzagi implied that he would give up the title competition.
In an interview with Italian media ‘DAZN’, coach Inzagi said, “It’s understandable to be disappointed. We had a good first half, so we wanted a different result. We had a lot of opportunities and we had to make the most of them. We played as we prepared for the game. That’s why I feel even more regretful. We needed to be more calm and make good use of the opportunity,” he said, revealing his regret about the result of the match. 메이저놀이터
Then, when asked if he would not be able to close the gap with Napoli, Inzaghi said, “Certainly yes, but we have to think only of our progress.”
Inter Milan is the team with the smallest points gap with Napoli. As long as Inter Milan has given up the championship race, it is highly unlikely that other teams will be confident of competing for the championship with Napoli. Napoli are solidifying their dominance in Serie A this season.
