Those led by Massimiliano Allegri are in an excellent moment, coming to beat 0-3 in their visit to Fiorentina at Artemio Franchi with goals from Betancur, Chiellini and of course Cristinao Ronaldo and so the Viecchia Signora adds a streak of four consecutive victories, where the triumph by the minimum is included before Valencia of Spain, that allows him to classify to the following instance of the UEFA Champions League.
The best of these four victories is that they got their goals and thus proves why is the best team in Italy in these precious moments, so Bianconeri is the leader in Serie A with 40 points, thanks to his thirteen wins and a tie in fourteen games, and thus add a difference of eight points on their closest pursuer as is Naples, but that’s not all, as the Vecchia Signora has the best front with 31 goals score, and at the same time the best defense with just 8 goals, and now they are willing to show it in the best game of the day against Inter Milan.
For its part, as usual at Inter Milan, those led by Luciano Spalletti start the championship well but with the running of things things are changing for Neroazzurro and thus have only added one win in their last five games, and eye that here we find the tie to a goal against Barcelona and the defeat by 1-0 in his visit to Tottenham Hotspur by the UEFA Champions League, which are results that have complicated the continuity of Inter in this competition, where on the last day is forced to beat PSV Eindhoven at home and hope that the English do not pass the draw in his visit to a Barcelona that already secured the first place in the group.
