Redemption or rejection for Inter

Inter have an opportunity to show they have learned from their mistakes against Shakhtar, even if the Nerazzurri’s Champions League destiny is not completely in their hands, writes Richard Hall.

Antonio Conte would argue that neither he nor his team need redemption. After all, they sit second in the Serie A table, five points behind Milan and they have only lost once. They are free scoring that is for sure and whilst they have conceded too many, they have had a recent uplift in their defensive performance. The Champions League could offer a recovery that if it happens, would wash away the memories of the terrible early games. So, the question is, are Inter back to what they were last season, or is there another banana skin lying around the corner?
