INTER – The league leaders (on goal difference) are physically tired, but seem aware of what is needed to not overly dramatize what is their first defeat of the season in the context of an excellent start to the year. Of course, after the derby they have never really convinced in three games, but a convincing victory would limit the midweek misstep to… one misstep.
MILAN – One might have thought that the slaps in the derby would have done unspeakable damage, but instead the reaction was immediate. The 0-0 draw with Newcastle may seem like a mess, but in reality it was a test of strength that “only” lacked a goal. Then two victories in the championship, a sign that his legs are also responding well at the moment.
JUVENTUS- It is a Juve that runs, denoting a good collective physical preparation, but which mentally has not yet found reliable stability, alternating matches, or fractions of matches, of great presence and attention, with “butterfly” phases, to put it Cheerful, peppered with lapses in concentration and individual errors.
ATALANTA- It’s not the best version of Gasperini’s Atalanta in both phases of the game, but for now it’s still working and the three wins in a row confirm this.
NAPLES – On a physical level, Napoli don’t seem to have any particular problems. Both in Bologna and against Udinese the performances were positive. The mental aspect, however, is different: it remains to be understood how the team will absorb the tensions of the Osimhen case.
