INZAGHI: ‘NO FAVOURITES BETWEEN INTER AND JUVENTUS’
“We’ll need an aggressive and determined performance. We are aware that there will be moments where Juve will create trouble for us,” Inzaghi said at a press conference.
“In August, they seemed the favourite for the Scudetto, with Inter and other clubs in the race. But the pitch counts. Now we are on top, but the race will be open until the end.
“Juventus have a competitive team, Bonucci and Chiellini will play and I want to wish good luck to Federico Chiesa. I don’t know the lad personally, but I played with his father at Lazio. Federico is a heritage for Italian football.”
Inter picked up a 1-1 draw against Juventus in October, with the Bianconeri scoring the equaliser with a late Paulo Dybala penalty kick.
“We thought we had won that game, then there was that penalty. However, it was many months ago and both teams have evolved since,” said Inzaghi.
“It wasn’t a nice match for both teams that didn’t live up to their standard.
“We have a training session today, we played on Sunday night and everyone is feeling well, including Edin Dzeko and Joaquin Correa.
“All four strikers are fit, two will start and two will go on the bench. Having many options has never been a problem.”
Inter President Steven Zhang arrived in Milan last week and will be at the stadium tomorrow, while Juventus patron Andrea Agnelli won’t be there as he tested positive for COVID.
“I am happy that he [Zhang] is here physically, but I’ve always felt him close to the team over the last few months,” said Inzaghi.
“We text each other after every game. He watched the match against Lazio and we hope to play an excellent match for him.
“It’s a final and there are no favourites in these games. Juventus are unbeaten in the last eight matches and they made something extraordinary on Sunday.
“They are accustomed to playing Finals, they have experienced players, but we are in a good moment.”
Fuck Bonucci and Chiellini. With so many players missing we should destroy their morale for the remainder of the season!
Agree with you guys with regards to the quicker forwards, hope to see Alexis to be honest.
