Why Inter Milan and Juventus could be trading spots in Italian football hierarchy after tense Supercoppa final

For years, Italian football has actually been controlled by Juventus. A gaining cycle that started in 2011 and brought 9 successive scudetti to Turin was highlighted by the arrival of Antonio Conte and after that continued completely by Massimiliano Allegri up until 2019. Then something altered after the Conte and Allegri ages, initially with Maurizio Sarri and after that with Andrea Pirlo on the bench. Juventus, even with the troubles of the previous 2 seasons, had actually constantly discovered a winning formula that produced prizes. Even last season under Pirlo, the Bianconeri won 2 prizes: Supercoppa Italiana versus Napoli and the Coppa Italia last versus Atalanta in May 2021.

Despite no longer being thought about the greatest in Serie A and the lacks of Federico Chiesa, Matthijs de Ligt and Juan Cuadrado, some still preferred Juve to produce that winning mindset in Wednesday’s extra-time defeat to Simone Inzaghi’s Inter Milan at San Siro. And that was closed in the 120th minute when Alexis Sanchez made the most of Alex Sandro’s error and scored the winning objective and a memorable minute for Inter Milan advocates all over. Fans had the ability to witness the very first prize event for their enjoyed club in eleven years, as it was not possible throughout in 2015’s Serie A title due to the fact that arenas were closed due to lockdowns and limitations.

Inzaghi won the Supercoppa for the 3rd time as a coach, the very first with Inter Milan after 2 with Lazio. Incredibly, all 3 of his Supercoppa titles have actually come versus Juventus, and in each of the 3 video games there was a last-minute objective that chose the video game. The previous Lazio supervisor is the very first in history to beat Juventus 3 times in a last.  

Inter Milan have the chance now to split open a gaining cycle with the very first piece of hardware of the season. There are vital weeks ahead with numerous huge matches in Serie A and the round of 16 versus Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League — all of which you can stream on Paramount+. Juventus, on the other hand, remain in redemption mode, getting the pieces from a dreadful start of the season as they race to slip into among the leading 4 areas all while getting ready for Unai Emery’s Villarreal in the Champions League.

The ruling champs getting another piece of flatware Wednesday might indicate of a possible altering of the guard in Italy after a dominant run in the previous decade-plus from Juventus. Thanks to the work of previous Juventus CEO Beppe Marotta and long time sporting director Piero Ausilio, Inter have actually struck on the majority of their options off the pitch. A lineup restoration that started back in 2017 with Luciano Spalletti and after that with Conte has actually brought a winning mindset that transformed this club. This season Inzaghi was clever to enhance a group that last summertime appeared predestined to become worse after Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi left the club. 

An example of how the 2 sides might have now traded locations was Leonardo Bonucci’s response to Alexis Sanchez’s objective. When Sanchez score the winner at the death, the 34-year-old Juventus protector, who was preparing to go into in the occasion of a charge shootout, lost his cool and triggered a heated conflict with an Inter Milan employee for cheering and was fined with €10,000. 

It was a hot-headed response that may not have actually appeared regular for a veteran like Bonucci in the heat of the minute, however it might produced a tip what the future might hold for an Inter Milan side that has actually ended up being the group to beat in Italy, exactly like Juventus were for a whole years.
