Cynical and solid, but above all a winner: these are the numbers of a record-breaking Inter

Seventh consecutive victory in the league with only two goals conceded: Scudetto statistics. And some go back to the times of Mancini and Mourinho ...

A step back in terms of performance compared to the latest releases? Maybe, but what does it matter (the Nerazzurri world will think): certain victories are the ones that make the difference to be able to rejoice in the end. Those who understand football call them "cynical", "full of character". And for once, never mind if the show doesn't come. For Conte it was only about taking home three points, which became very heavy after AC Milan's success at Hellas. The game wasn't the best of days, but there was still a great team ahead of them like Gasperini's Atalanta. And there is that, the next day, there is something to review. In any case, in Appiano Gentile they look at the ranking: what matters more than anything else.

62 points have been won so far, Milan remain at -6 and now the calendar is smiling with four more affordable days on paper: next Sunday we go to Turin against Nicola's grenades, then here is Sassuolo at home, away to Bologna and Cagliari back to the Meazza before challenging Napoli at the San Paolo (April 18). A poker that, at best, would bring Conte to 74, while Pioli will have a difficult tour de force between Manchester United, Naples, Red Devils again, Fiorentina at Franchi, Sampdoria in Milan and Parma at Tardini. Anyway, time to time and word to the field.
