"Tuttosport" looks at the calendar of Inter and Juventus in search of the most insidious shifts. Who will be winter champion?
NODO ATALANTA – When Antonio Conte will face Atalanta on the last day he will have to remember the words of Miralem Pjanic. "Maybe someone is not clear but those who fight for the summit in Bergamo in recent years come to play direct confrontations". It is true that in January, at the end of the first round, it will be Gian Piero Gasperini's team to go to San Siro to challenge Inter , but the specter remains and will be worse in May when the Nerazzurri finish the season at the Gewiss Stadium, unless then the scudetto games are already made.
SCUDETTO FIGHT – Waiting for March 1, when Juventus and Inter return to cross, this time at the Allianz Stadium, the two teams continue the tug-of-war keeping alive the championship fight , ready to exploit a rival's misstep to stretch (in the case of Juventus) or hooking / climbing over (in the case of Inter). The heads-up that sees them separated by a single point (35 to 34) after 13 days of the championship has now created an abyss between them and their pursuers (the third is Lazio with 27 points): it is therefore not a risk to say that the scudetto is their only business.
INSIDIUS ROUNDS – In the six days left to reach the halfway point and determine who will be the winter champion, three rounds (15th, 18th and 19th) are to be kept under control because they are more insidious. On December 7th Juventus will risk the most in the difficult match at the Olimpico, host of the current third force of the championship, Simone Inzaghi's Lazio, for an advance of the Italian Super Cup that will be played two weeks later in Ryiad, while the Inter faces Rome in Milan. Opposite situation in the first game of the new year: the Nerazzurri go to Naples – and maybe then Carlo Ancelotti will have overcome the moment of crisis – while Juventus is waiting for Cagliari which is the real revelation of this season. Finally on 12 January CR7 and his companions are called to another trip to the capital, this time to face Roma while Inter, as mentioned at the beginning, hosts Atalanta.
DECISIVE DIRECT DISCUSSION – Juventus and Inter went hand in hand in the first two days, both winners, then in mid-September the Maurizio Sarri group's trip to Florence scored the first equal in the league and the Nerazzurri immediately took advantage of it to beat the Udinese (goal by Sensi) and take the lead with two points ahead. It will be the direct confrontation, on October 6th at the San Siro, to overturn the top of the championship: the Dybala-Higuain pair will hit Milan and now it is Juventus who leads with one more point. At the end of October the second stop in the line of Juventus successes: in Lecce, without Cristiano Ronaldo, the Bianconeri did not go beyond 1-1 but this time Inter, who plays three hours after Juventus, does not know how to take advantage of the opportunity and draw at home against Parma, leaving the gap unchanged.
