MILAN – The last time Inter scored eight victories in the league was 2008/09 and on the bench there was one of the great protagonists of the last days, José Mourinho. Against Atalanta the opportunity for Luciano Spalletti will be greedy, to equal the former rival and above all give continuity to the results. In Bergamo it will be a "insidious trip, with a maximum degree of difficulty", explained the coach. Difficulties also increased by the probable absence of Radja Nainggolan among the eleven owners.
"He made himself available against Barcelona, but it's difficult tomorrow he'll be in the game," Spalletti said. The theme Mourinho, however, hovers on Appiano Gentile almost as much as tomorrow's challenge against Atalanta. The gesture towards the supporters of Juventus has been discussed, and Spalletti does not hold back. "As long as you stay on this level, it's all part of the show. If you go to tease a lion, there can be a roar ", the opinion of the Interista coach.
"On a cold note he said he would not do it and we agree. He roared, without giving the tooth. What is incorrect is to hear people continually insulting ". A Mourinho who is also the goal to be equaled for Spalletti, meanwhile for the eight victories in a row. Maximum attention, therefore, in what will be an "extension of the Champions League", according to the technician. The challenge with Barcelona has remained in the head and especially in the legs, starting from Nainggolan but not only.
"It will be an opportunity to see our level of maturity, we need results in continuity without giving up a centimeter – continued Spalletti -. The streak of consecutive wins represents what we had to do, this is the championship of our level. Brozovic? It is the one that has spent the most, it has to be evaluated. Something will change, Gagliardini will be in the match because he deserves it ".
It goes towards the confirmation of 4-3-3, with doubts in defense (Miranda favored on De Vrij) and attack (Candreva ready to replace Politano), while confirmed Perisic with Icardi (who has not yet scored in Bergamo). Juventus is still in the sights, hoping to shorten the six points of separation. "It is the strongest team of all, to beat it we must be impeccable and try to do the impossible, always believing", concluded Spalletti.
"I did not understand correctly", Ancelotti imitates Mourinho! Hand to ear and arrow at Juve
