With the gap to Napoli at the top of Serie A having dropped to 15 points, there will be a small part of the minds of Inter players thinking they can still reel Luciano Spalletti’s side in.
The Nerazzurri travel to face Spezia on Friday night in Serie A Matchday 26 which is a game that they will certainly expect to take all three points in, knowing that Napoli have a trickier game against Atalanta to navigate.
Spezia are right in the thick of the relegation battle and will be aiming to grab a point at home to Inter and return the focus to more winnable games.
