Luciano Spalletti has warned his Inter Milan players about potential complacency when they take on SPAL this weekend. After an inconsistent start to the campaign, Inter Milan are starting to go on a winning run that has seen them signify consecutive wins since the last international break. Inter are now going for a sixth consecutive win in all competitions when they travel to the Stadio Paolo Mazza this weekend. A crucial element that would help Inter Milan in this game would be the form of players like Icardi, who had a difficult start to the season but is now back in the goals.
Even then, there could be potential complacency from Inter Milan ahead of taking on a team expected to fight against relegation this season. SPAL have had some decent results at the Stadio Paolo Mazza so far this season and Luciano Spalletti is worried that his players may become complacent given the vast differences between the two clubs in terms of league table. So far, inter have come close to dropping points against the likes of Cagliari while they have also lost against the likes of Sassuolo and Parma. Such results are more than sufficient to warn the team about complacency, according to Luciano Spalletti. The 59-year-old has been at Inter for just over a year.

Lazio midfielder Marco Parolo believes the club’s Champions League prospect could be decided against Inter Milan in the final league game of the Serie A campaign. Simone Inzaghi’s side played out a credible 0-0 draw against AS Roma in the Rome derby on Sunday, and this sees them occupy the third and fourth positions respectively with a one-point lead over Inter Milan.
Speaking after the game, Parolo was delighted with the result on the night after they had to withstand plenty of pressure from the opposition. Most notably Edin Dzeko and Bruno Peres hit the woodwork for their cross-town rivals, who had the advantage of playing with an extra man for the final 10 minutes of the derby.

Slovakian defender Milan Skriniar is convinced he will play Champions League football with Inter Milan, and won’t seek an exit, should they fail to qualify for next season’s competition. The 23-year-old has been a revelation for the San Siro outfit since his arrival from Sampdoria last summer, and his performances at the heart of the defence have attracted interest from Spanish giants Barcelona.
In an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, the centre-back stressed that he is content with his stay with the Catalan club, and he is prepared to stick with the San Siro outfit for the long-term, he said: “When I came here, it was said that my price was exaggerated. Now I see it even higher. I’ve heard the talk, I read about Barcelona and other clubs, but I’m only focused on my upcoming commitments: I have to think about games and training. Nothing else matters. Certainly my stay at Inter isn’t linked to whether we qualify for the Champions League, although I’m convinced we’ll reach it regardless because Inter have quality men and professionals. I love this shirt and feel very good in Milan: I said ‘yes’ without hesitation when Spalletti and Ausilio asked me to pick Inter.”
