Inter are ascending: Rapid are only eighth ranked team in Austrian league but winning four straight games allows tension to be a bit pleasant
“Inter are ascending. The team has played responsibly and managed to keep up with ambitions. Yes it is true that it was only against the 8th ranked team in the Austrian league but winning four straight games in less than two weeks makes tension a bit more pleasant.”
That was the Gazzetta dello Sport after the convincing 4-0 victory over Rapid Vienna. Such a nice period of success: 8 goals scored, 1 allowed. Thank goodness that Inter are playing frequently to forget about the distractions off the pitch, with spiteful comments and medical exam to clear up the situation of Mauro Icardi. The whistles, in the past two games, welcomed Icardi and his family to the stadium. The team, however, remains a united entity, with desire to show something more, something extra, with everybody looking forward and not to that side of the stadium where the former captain and his wife Wanda Nara sat for the last couple of games.
