The defending Serie A champions are in the race to secure a domestic treble after winning the Supercoppa and the Coppa Italia this season. However, in order to retain their Serie A title, they’ll have to see Milan slip in one of their final two games of the season.
The Rossoneri are enjoying a two-point lead over Inter on top of the Serie A table and four points in the final two matches are enough for Stefano Pioli’s men to win their first Scudetto in 11 years.
They’ll face Atalanta at San Siro on Sunday and Inter will need help from their ex-coach Gasperini. Luckily for the Nerazzurri, a motivated Atalanta will travel to San Siro as La Dea has yet to secure a European spot.
Inter needing Gasp’s help somehow sounds odd, given that the coach has never been on good terms with the club since his sacking in 2011. Although Inter had different owners at that time, Gasperini has often moaned that he was not given enough time and resources at the Stadio Meazza, where he lost four of his five games in charge of the team.
Atalanta share the seventh spot with Fiorentina and Roma at the moment, but, as things stads, they’d remain out of Europe because of a worse head-to-head record with the Tuscans and the Giallorossi. Inter face Cagliari and Sampdoria in their last two Serie A games, while Milan will end the campaign away at Sassuolo next week.
