The Inter Milan manager Andrea Stramaccioni has said that he wants his team to realise the full potential and beat the lower opposition as they do against the top teams. Andrea Stramaccioni has been able to get the best out of Inter Milan this season, as he has been able to get the new look team to a position where they are able to challenge for the title with Juventus and Napoli. One of the main reasons for this has been the matches against Juventus and Fiorentina, which have been uncomfortably by Inter Milan despite being the underdogs.

However, they have struggled against lower opposition in the recent times, as the defeats against Parma, Atlanta, and Cagliari show the manager. He has said that the results against Juventus and Fiorentina clearly show that there is a lot of potential within the team, but they need to replicate that in the matches against lower opposition as well if they are to reach the heights of the previous Inter Milan teams. Inter Milan go into the weekend’s match against Palermo on the back of the 1-0 defeat against Parma. Stramaccioni has said that this period of a few days has given him the opportunity to fine-tune his team ahead of this encounter. Parma had just won two matches in the last five prior to this Inter Milan encounter.

“Inter Milan has defeated the best two teams of this league, that is Juventus and Fiorentina, producing two great performances. This has given us the awareness of our potential. We have defeated the league leaders and the team which is said to be playing the best football in Serie A and this has given us confidence. But we have lost points against the smaller teams,” Stramaccioni said ahead of the Palermo encounter on Sunday.
