Napoli, one step closer to winning… Chaser Inter Self-Destruct End Defeat
- on Jan 24, 2023
While the question of whether Kim Min-jae’s team Napoli won the Italian Serie A was attracting attention, 3rd place Inter Milan, one of the strongest pursuers, was pushed back one step with an unexpected defeat.
Inter played the 19th round of Serie A at San Siro in Milan, Italy on the 24th (Korean time) and lost 0-1 to Empoli.먹튀검증
As a result of the match, 3rd place Inter stayed with 37 points. It was 13 points away from Napoli, who had reached 50 points. If second place AC Milan (38 points), who have not yet played 19 rounds, also fails to win this round, Napoli will be able to drop all pursuers by more than 10 points.
In particular, Juventus, who had been considered the scariest team in the second half, received a 15-point deduction (later 23 points) for accounting fraud, and fell from 2nd place to 10th place, making it easier for Napoli to play solo.
Inter is a strong team that suffered its first defeat of the season against Napoli on the 5th. Including this game, after the league resumed, they were on a winning streak with 4 wins and 1 draw in 5 games (including cup competitions). However, they were caught up in a tougher schedule than other teams. Inter flew to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia for the Supercopa Italiana (Italian Super Cup) on the 19th and returned. They won the trophy with a 3-0 win in the Supercopa, but were sluggish in the ensuing league matches.
Inter tried to arrange their stamina by employing some second-class players, but three-back had to play the starting lineup intact, and a problem occurred here. Star centre-back Milan Škriniar was sent off after receiving a yellow card in the 25th and 40th minutes. And Tommaso Baldanchi of Empoli scored the winning goal in the 21st minute of the second half.
