Take advantage of the enthusiasm for qualifying for the round of 16 of the Champions League to get even closer to the top in the league. This is the goal of Inter, which after having hit the passage of the round in Europe is expected tomorrow for the delicate match at Venice's home. The success of last week against Napoli and the simultaneous defeat of AC Milan have in fact relaunched the scudetto ambitions of Simone Inzaghi's men. But now we need continuity, not only of performances but also of results for the Nerazzurri, at -4 in the standings by Spalletti's Neapolitans and Pioli's Rossoneri. It will also be necessary to measure up, considering the next commitments: after the trip to Penzo, Inter will host the Spezia at San Siro on Wednesday before the amarcord match against Roma of the great former José Mourinho at the Olimpico.match that will precede the clash of Champions against Real Madrid decisive for the first place in the group. In Venice, Simone Inzaghi could choose the path of turnover, even if limited by the absences of the various Sanchez and De Vrij. Andrea Ranocchia, "substitute" for one day for Inzaghi himself in the press conference on the eve of the event, kept the attention high. "The round of 16 of the Champions League is an important goal, all of us and the club wanted to reach it. An important step because we didn't start well in the group and then we put things back in order. It gives us peace of mind for the Champions League but we have a match tomorrow. very difficult ", the words of the central player who should still start at Penzo considering that De Vrij is still knocked out. "The coach showed he was able to manage a group of champions, I hope he will continue to improve to achieve the objectives - he continued -. I am happy that we have won these two games. But the past is past and tomorrow we have another ".
