Pulling off a comeback is a characteristics of a champion. When Inter beat rivals Milan 4-2 after 2-0 down, they are getting closer to the league title, becoming a serious threat to current champion Juventus.
They were surprised by Milan’s strong performance in the first half, especially in the final five minutes as Ante Rebic scored the first goal before Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a header to make it 2-0 at half-time.
Such scoreline is almost unheard of this season, since Inter only lose once so far.
That however, must have angered Antonio Conte, as they rallied with two quick goals in 51st minute through long-range shot by Marcelo Brozovic and 53rd minute through Matias Vecino.
The turning point came in the final 20 minutes, as Inter defender Stefan de Vrij scored a flying header in 70th minute.
As Milan trying to find an equaliser, Inter took a chance to counter attack when a cross from Victor Moses goes straight to Romelu Lukaku who headed the fourth goal, sealing the victory for the home side.
Inter are now unbeaten in 16 league games, sharing the same 54 points with Juve but remain on top of the table due to the goal difference.
“It’s still very early to talk about something we can only dream of for now,” Conte told Sky Italia.
“We can have a dream. It’s a very intense period for us coming up and after that we’ll have a better idea of our potential and our real capabilities.
“We can’t achieve everything from one day to the next, but we are building. These guys proved they have great strength and guts today.”
They host Napoli on Wednesday, before a crucial clash against fellow title challengers Lazio next Sunday.
