Inzaghi: “Florence is a difficult away match for everyone”


With Inter set to head to the Artemio Franchi to face Fiorentina in match-week eleven of the Serie A, Nerazzurri boss Inzaghi previewed the highly anticipated fixture in a press conference.

Currently, Inter sit in seventh place, possessing a total of 18 points. As a result, they are three points behind Roma, who hold the last remaining spot within the top four, as well as eight points adrift from the league-leaders Napoli.

As it stands, La Beneamata are looking to extend their fine run of form to three consecutive victories within the domestic leaguer after a solid 2-0 victory over Salernitana where central midfielder Nicolo Barella stole the show with a fabulous finish to double his side’s advantage.

As relayed by Tuttomercato, the Emilian tactician provided his thoughts about having to face Fiorentina on the road tomorrow evening:

Florence is a difficult away match for everyone, this week we had a few more days and we managed to work quite well, now we are confident to face this away match.

The results bring self-esteem, the victories are very important. From here to the break we have a series of difficult games, both at home and away: every three days we will be under pressure and we will have to face them one at a time with a lot of head as in the last races.

On the road we have to do more. It is normal that playing in our stadium in front of our fans will help and facilitate us, but even on Saturday evening there will be many.”

In addition, the gaffer gave an update on star striker Romelu Lukaku’s recovery from injury:

He has been training partially in a group for two days. He has to regain his condition, but he is very motivated: finally, after a very long time, the injury has overcome it. Now he will not be with us tomorrow in Florence, we try to bring him on Wednesday. He has to find his condition, but seeing him work I am confident.”

Furthermore, Inzaghi spoke about whether the Scudetto is still considered a possibility after having dropped numerous points at the start of the campaign:

We have to look at the calendar, be realistic. There is a gap and they are racing ahead, now the goal is to recover points in the league and go through to the Champions League.”
