if Thuram is really out for at least 3 weeks

he will miss Lecce, Atalanta, Genoa, Bologna, Atletico and quite possibly also Napoli (March 17th)

well..... fuck

don't be surprised if Milan and Juve start winning games again and almost catch up by the time we play Napoli

Good win albeit it a very slim margin going to Madrid. And no Thuram most likely which will suck. Arna is gonna have to do better with the chances he gets. We’ve been fantastic away but Atletico are fantastic at home so this is far from undecided.

Morata looked a bit menacing when he came on. I’m not sure if I like De Vrij marking him tbh. Hopefully Acerbi is back to full fitness for the 2nd leg. Lino was causing issues too. We’ll need Darmian at his best to keep him contained.

i would like to disagree but it's sadly the the truth. The only positive thing is that Thuram got injured and not Lautaro. Thuram is important for our build up but he sometimes fuck up too much in front of the goal. Lautaro is basically everything for us. The fighting sprit would miss without him, Inter can't play without him as we saw against Genoa for example.

As long as Lautaro can play, I think we'll have at least a 5 point margin by the point we play Napoli. You are correct, for Serie A, he is more important.

But for CL, it is a big shame and handicap for us if Thuram won't be able to play against Atletico in Madrid.

Atletico is not easy for anyone, Inter did great.
It will take something special from Atletico to knock this Inter out.

Hopefully not to many injuries for Inter in the up and coming weeks, because this is/will be a hard battle and it will take it's toll on the players.

It will be very hard without Thuram cause we will be slower on counter. Lets see what Limone Demone will cook.

Gotta be able to manage Lecce and Genoa, no excuses there. Atalanta is a bonus game, we can't lose ground we can only gain or stay put. I expect the margin to maintain itself going into the Bologna game.

We should, but Lecce is not a bad team at all

based on their form they are absolutely horrible. If not for a lucky win vs Fiorentina they would have the worst form in Serie A... This should be a win.

They are in abyssal form since new year. One of the worst teams. Since we beat them last time, they have 1 win, 1 draw and 6 losses.

I think if we play like we have been, we should do well at the Wanda.

We’ll have to be incredibly patient, but they’ll need to come at us as the clock ticks on and we are absolute monsters at exploiting space in transition.
