The journalist spoke of the ability to suffer and to bring home the matches that Inter and Juve share
Juve first and Inter second in Serie A. The two teams divided by a point, but united by a given. As journalist Alberto Cerruti explains in La Gazzetta dello Sport:
“Juventus who suffers before winning, risking and indeed deserving to be at a disadvantage like Sunday night, is no longer a novelty this season. The good day, after all, was seen at the season’s exodus, with a 1-0 identical to the last, on the field of Parma. It was the first of nine wins out of ten, with just one goal difference, with the classic exception confirming the rule represented by Spal from 2-0. A respected average in the Champions League, where only the 3-0 home draw against Leverkusen did not hurt Sarri and the fans, unlike the double 2-1, the first in comeback, against Lokomotiv Moscow, last in the group as the Germans. It is true that Juventus had never qualified for the round of 16 with two games in advance, but Moscow’s last European suffering should not be underestimated, just as Ronaldo’s two consecutive substitutions should not be underestimated, without which Juventus has gone from two draws with as many victories. The results cannot wait, but the good game does, with or without the Portuguese champion, which is actually the greatest example of concreteness, because throughout his career the numbers, that is goals, have been more important than the show. To become a champion Ronaldo made sacrifices from Funchal to Turin, as Conte did, although with very different characteristics, from Lecce to Turin, where he was successful as a player and as a coach.
He who had been criticized at the presentation of Inter when he coined the slogan “head down and pedal”, while Giampaolo announced “head up and play”, now says he is proud of the 31 points in 12 games, the result of 10 victories, just like the Juventus, 8 of them with just one goal difference, between the 4-0 start against Lecce and the 2-0 in the derby. Suffering, therefore, also for the first and only pursuer of the leaders, as confirmed by the last three 2-1 consecutive, with Brescia, Bologna and Verona, it does not matter if due to fatigue due to a reduced staff, or for other reasons. The truth is that the beautiful game does not live at the top of the table, either where you win by raising Dybala from the bench, or where you must hold onto the seventeen-year-old Esposito. Because the common partner of Sarri and Conte has become suffering. With greetings to those who have fun behind them ”.
