After successfully defeating Cagliari in Week-37 of the 2021/22 Serie A competition, Lautaro Martinez, the Inter Milan striker who also scored two goals in that match, still has the confidence to help his team in defending the Scudetto title.
However, he admits that the shock defeat against Bologna with a score of 1-2, really had a big impact on Simone Inzaghi’s team in running the title competition with city rivals, AC Milan.
Because when they got a negative result in Week-34, the Rossoneri were able to overtake Inter to the top of the standings, having now been two points adrift which means Stefano Pioli’s squad continues to be seeded.
“Now, we have to win the last game (against Sampdoria) and hope for the best. We still have the possibility to win the Scudetto, because the belief is still there,” said Martinez from Italian Football.
“Unfortunately, Inter had to lose important points against Bologna. If, I had the opportunity to replay a match, it would be the match I chose,” he concluded.
Not only must they be able to win against Sampdoria, Inter also hopes for a miracle with Sassuolo being able to beat Milan, in order to open up the possibility for Simone Inzaghi’s squad to win the title.
