Solid Inter foundations to build on

This season hasn't been an abject failure for Inter as they've found a base to improve on, writes Richard Hall.

When assessing the Nerazzurri’s season it is perhaps too easy to be negative. Whilst it is true that in some respects it has been a campaign of missed opportunities, it has also been one that has seen the club build a solid core. Europa League football is certainly an achievement for the club and despite falling short of the pre-season goal of Champions League football, they can look back with some pride.

Inter foundations are set

After one full season together, Inter’s three men at the back have proven to be the perfect foundation to build a successful team, writes Paul Hill.

With four matches to play, Inter are on course for their best goals against record since last winning Serie A at the turn of the decade. A vital reason for this has been the three men at the heart of the defensive set-up.

Viewing the squad statistics for this term, Samir Handanovic, Jeison Murillo and Miranda are the three names at the top of the minutes accumulated list. It is stability such as this and not a 30-goal striker that will get the Nerazzurri challenging again.

Miranda: ‘Small chance of CL’

The Brazil international assured that they will ‘fight until the end’ before commenting on the continuing success of his former club Atletico Madrid.

“We still have a small chance of playing in the Champions League,” Miranda told Onda Cero.

Miranda: 'Serie A tougher than Liga'

Joao Miranda warns it’s “more difficult to win a game in Serie A than La Liga,” but doesn’t see Diego Simeone at Inter.

The defender moved from Atletico Madrid to Inter last summer and made an immediate impact, but spoke to Globoesporte in Brazil about the differences between the two Leagues.

“It is more difficult to win a game in Italy. In Spain, if you play for a big club, you know you’re going to win.
