CdS asks: "Milan or Barcelona... what game is more important?"
Inter fans, are you ready for three straight huge matches right after this international break? On Sunday the 21st, we have a Milan derby and then three days later, Inter will take on Barcelona at the Camp Nou in matchday 3 of Champions League group stage. On Monday the 29th, the Nerazzurri will then visit Lazio at the Olimpico.
The Corriere dello Sport asks: what is more important to win between the derby and the game against Barca?
“It is impossible to make certain choices. No coach can afford to give priority to a game or a tournament. Losing the derby would certainly cause the familiar feeling that the fans felt after receiving four points in the first four games. Yes, it is true that Inter are on a six-game winning streak but a stumble here would risk causing ‘discomfort’ among the faithful. A year ago, Inter won the first leg but then the Devils eliminated them in the Coppa Italia quarterfinals, sharpening the crisis that had already begun. In the return leg, Inter failed to capitalize on their superior plays compared to the cousins.”
