Interviewed exclusively by the "Corriere dello Sport", Marcello Lippi spoke of the duel between Juventus and Inter – both teams having, albeit with different results, trained – and of the possible route of the two teams not only in the league, but also in the Champions League
DUEL AT THE LAST DAY – Marcello Lippi is sure: for the Scudetto it will be a fight for two until the last second. The Nerazzurri and the Bianconeri are battling point-to-point, leaving the void behind: " I like the duel between Inter and Juventus , it's very nice and it certainly made the start of the season very interesting. I really think it can last until the end. In August, I thought that for the title they would have fought in three, but Napoli has slipped away and will be struggling to get back into the race. Conte is doing everything to the fullest: he takes care of every detail, works a lot and manages to convey the right stimuli to the group in every meeting. It makes the difference and if there was a technician who could shorten the gap so quickly, that was him. His winning move was to involve the whole rose, to be followed by everyone, to establish a crazy feeling in the locker room. The players were good on the field, but he didn't make a mistake and created an incredible unity of purpose within the group ».
DRAGON – After training as a player, Marcello Lippi always knew what the impact of Antonio Conte could be on the Inter bench: « If I expected this impact from Conte? Sure. I trained Antonio and I know what kind of person he is: he is a leader and a driver. He is doing what he can do in spite of injuries and a staff that is lower than that of Juventus. In January, the Inter squad will probably be improved and this will allow the Nerazzurri to remain attached to Juventus, to fight for the Scudetto to the end. The Nerazzurri would need some extra change to do a bit of rotation ».
RACE FOR THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE – Finally, a comment from Lippi also on the possibilities of both teams in the Champions League : « Juventus must try to finish first in its Champions League group and has many chances to make it, but don't give up Inter: he has many injuries, but in Prague he can win and at that point everything would be played against Barcelona at San Siro. The Nerazzurri's attack is of a high level: Lautaro Martinez has grown a lot and has become an important player; I have always admired Lukaku and in Italy he is making the difference ".
