Inter, Milan and the Scudetto: who is the favorite? The analysis of the calendar

from Guido De Carolis and Carlos Passerini

We tried to attribute a coefficient of difficulty for the matches of the last three days, which can change according to the fight for salvation. But Verona, Atalanta and Sassuolo seem to be more difficult commitments than Empoli, Cagliari and Sampdoria

Three matches. 270 minutes plus recoveries. The long scudetto derby is approaching the finish line, three corners and we’ll know. The ranking says Milan 77 and Inter 75. Now a two-way clash, Napoli (70) and Juve (69) are cut off. Pioli’s points of advantage over Inzaghi are actually 3, thanks to the direct clashes in favor, 1-1 and 2-1, which would premiere the Rossoneri in case of an equal points finish. How much does it weight that 2-1 goal by Giroud in the derby on February 5th. Milan are now masters of their destiny and also have a bonus: can afford to draw one and would still be champion of Italy, even if Inter wins them all. Here is the scenario that awaits us. Creepy. We also tried to assign a coefficient of difficulty for the matches of the last three days, from 1 to 5, obviously taking into account that the difficulty levels could change from week to week, depending on who has already saved or not. In fact, everything is still open, very open. What a finale, folks.

Verona Milan: May 8, 8.45 pm (***) You say Verona and the inevitable fatal adjective. The nightmare of at least two generations of AC Milan fans, who at Bentegodi saw as many championships fade, in 1973 with Rocco and in 1990 with Sacchi. There is no two without three, the hope of the Inter fans. One thing for sure: that of Sunday 8 against the Tudor team a very tough championship exam. Also because they will playtwo days after Inter on Friday they will face Empoli

, with the (real) risk of taking the field at the Bentegodi under one point in the standings. Hellas is then hungry. He also demonstrated it in Cagliari. In short: a key crossroads. But if you go to Verona …

Milan-Atalanta, May 15th at 6pm (****)

A year ago it was the last of the league and it was played in Bergamo: on May 23, winning 2-0, Milan won the Champions League qualification with a brace from Kessie on a penalty, 8 years after the last time. No longer the Goddess of steel of the past seasons, there are 14 points less than in 2020-21. But Gasp absolutely still wants Europe and he needs to accelerate in this finale. Atalanta always Atalanta: like a session at the dentist, said Guardiola. The Devil has San Siro on his side: with Fiorentina yesterday the 71,000 made the difference, almost physically dragging the Rossoneri to victory in the 82nd minute. Watch out for: Gasperini scores more points away than at home (36 against 19).

Cagliari v Inter, 15 May at 8.45 pm (**)

The trip to Cagliari is the only one that can really put Simone Inzaghi’s men in difficulty. The Nerazzurri will arrive after playing the final of the Italian Cup, the commitment will have a weight. The Sardinians will instead be in full battle for salvation and hungry for points. the most insidious match for Inter of the season finale.

Sassuolo v Milan, 22 May time to be defined (**)

The sensational defeat on Saturday, the 6-1 suffered by Napoli, would say of a Sassuolo now on vacation, but those who know the specifics of the neroverde team know that they cannot be trusted. How many times, even in the recent past, Sassuolo has pulled tricks on those who did not expect it. Inter is well aware of this, surprisingly defeated at home 2-0 on February 20: points that could cost the Nerazzurri the Scudetto. The real strength of Dionisi’s young group, in addition to the game, is that mix of nonchalance and impudence: if they want to make a good impression, they become a big problem for anyone. Raspadori, Frattesi, Scamacca, Berardi: everyone rightly wants to show off. Especially the latter, which Maldini aims to strengthen the right wing.

Inter-Sampdoria, 22 May time to be defined Inter will close their home championship against Sampdoria. Last year the last game was just a walkway to celebrate the Scudetto, this time it could be a game veiled in sadness if the title does not arrive. Certainly a rather easy commitment for the Nerazzurri, l

in Sampdoria he should arrive at San Siro already safe.
