Simone Inzaghi insists Inter will ‘try to the end’ to guide bitter rivals Milan to their second straight Serie A title. Second shot stopper Ionut Radu made an epic mistake as that Nerazzurri During the week they lost 2-1 in Bologna in the league and slipped two points behind the leaders Rossoneri.
With four games to go, Inter still have enough time to close a two-point deficit. However, the spirit of the team needs to be shaken after Radu’s inexplicable blunder at Dall’Ara last time out which gave gifted midfielder Bologna a futile triumph.
Samir Handanovic appears to be coping with an injury-related setback meaning Radu could start again on Sunday against Udinese. Although the Romanian’s giveaway could have a direct impact on the Scudetto race, Inzaghi may have to put him between the posts again.
“Handanovic has a problem, he worked separately in training today. There is hope he could play tomorrow otherwise we have Radu and Alex Cordaz ready.‘ he said, as passed on Gianluca di Marzio.
Prior to the Bologna defeat, Inter had won four straight Serie A games, including two away against Juventus and Spezia. They need to rejuvenate that form at Dacia Arena as Udinese aren’t messing around.
Gabriele Cioffi’s side defeated Fiorentina 4-0 at Artemio Franchi last weekend, presenting exciting, modern football. Since Udinese has nothing to lose and yet everything to gain, that Friuli could prove to be a tough test for Inter.
But Inzaghi expects his men to shake off midweek disappointment and bounce back in Udine.
“The mood after the Bologna game wasn’t the best, it was very disappointing, but I saw a strong team spirit in the last few days,” he continued.
“Every game is difficult, this site will try till the end. We will take it game by game, in Serie A and in the Coppa Italia final, hoping to bring more joy to the fans after winning the Supercoppa.”
