INTER STILL FIGHTING
Inter Milan continued to fight for their place in the Champions League next season after securing a vital 3-1 over fellow contenders Udinese during the weekend. The huge early season struggles for Inter Milan is well documented, but they are on course to qualifying for the Champions League next season after losing down the gap to the third position to just three points.
Only four matches remain in the Italian Serie A season. While the contenders for the third position – Lazio, Udinese, Napoli, and Roma – are dropping points, Inter Milan continue to get vital three points, as they move closer towards the third position.
The latest victory for the 2010 European Champions came in the match against Udinese, who are one of the favourites to qualify for the Champions League next season.
However, a magnificent performance from midfield maestro Wesley Sneijder helped Inter Milan to a 3-1 win over Udinese. It was Udinese who scored the first goal of the game, but Sneijder scored twice in the match to help Inter Milan move ahead. The club remain unbeaten since the arrival of youth team coach Andrea Stramaccioni, who was brought in to replace former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri. Meanwhile, Inter Milan were also aided by the loss of Lazio.
Despite being currently in the third position, Lazio could not hold their advantage, as they were defeated by relegation threatened Novara 2-1 prior to this match. Napoli, meanwhile, maintained their advantage over Inter Milan after securing a 2-0 win over Lecce. Meanwhile, at the top of the table, things continue to be excellent for leaders Juventus as they maintained their unbeaten run in the league. The 1-0 win over Cesena not only kept Juventus in the hunt for the first title since 2006, but also relegated Cesena to the Italian Serie B.
