Winner of Serie A 2019/2020 (Without Juventus) – Inter
Long term prediction and analysis for winner of Serie A
Inter had tough years, but the Nerazzurri board is taking serious steps to get them back where they belong. They should be major factor in the Champions League and fight for the title in Italy. This summer has been crucial for the club since Spalletti was sacked after 2 years at the club and Antonio Conte came in his place. Conte is probably the best Italian coach at the moment and certainly one of the best in the world at all. In the early months, most players commented and gave interviews that they learn a lot new things from him. Even Nainggolan, who was given to Cagliari on loan, said he regretted not working with Conte.
A very big trump for Inter this season is the brand new attack of the team. Lukaku and Sanchez joined Inter by Manchester United. Certainly these two players did not have very good moments with the Red Devils, but let’s not forget that Lukaku was one of the strongest strikers in the Premier League when playing for Everton and WBA and Sanchez was at world level in Arsenal. In addition, the Chilean has already played in Serie A for Udinese, where he did well.
The transfer of Godin will also be very important. The professor, as the Uruguayan is called, is ideal for Inter and Serie A, at least as a profile. In the center of defense, he will partner with two other talented defenders – de Vrij and Skriniar, which gives many options for Conte, who is a coach holding discipline and team play in defense. However, he led Chelsea to the title in his first season and gave a new look to his beloved 3-4-3 tactics.
Inter’s competition does not seem to get stronger in the market. We expect Lazio, Milan and Roma to have no serious progress from last season, while Atalanta will have Champions League games, which means tiredness. In reality, only Inter and Napoli appear to be teams that can contend for the title with Juventus, but in our prediction Juventus are not involved, so we expect Napoli to be a major threat to Inter. Neapolitans have a lot of character, but at the moment Inter are definitely not looking weaker.
It is very important to keep in mind that last season the Nerazzurri had serious problems in the dressing room. The main people who ruined the atmosphere were Nainggolan, Icardi and Perisic, and they are no longer in the team. And with Conte this is unlikely to happen, so we definitely think that with Inter there can be serious progress in terms of points and better performance in the Champions League, which means that they have a great chance of finishing ahead of everyone else in the Championship without Juventus.
