Inter will face Parma at the Ennio Tardini tomorrow. Parma are 19th in the table and desperately need to win to escape the relegation zone.
I expect a difficult game. Parma have always created trouble for us since I came here. Right now they are not in a good position, but they have experience and a good coach, we’ll need the right approach
,” Conte said at a press conference.
Inter are currently the best team in Serie A. Can it still get better?
We must be more effective in front of the goal, we create many opportunities, but we must be more clinical,
” Conte said.
“There will be pressure until the end of the season. We are the table leaders, so the situation is different from the previous campaign. We must handle it with maturity.
"This year we beat the team that has won the title for nine years in a row and that want to win again.
“I think it is also important because last year they had beaten us twice, consolidating their power.
“Our victory brought self-esteem and awareness. Now, there are 14 games left, we must show that we have grown and there is only one way to do it, win the Scudetto.”
Alexis Sanchez scored a goal against Genoa on Sunday.
“He joined Inter after two difficult seasons at Manchester United. He had had ankle problems, but we waited for him.
“He is in his best moment right now, we see glimpses of the old Alexis. He is aware Lukaku and Lautaro are ahead of him, but he is doing very well and both Romelu and Lautaro must look over their shoulders."
Nicolò Barella, Alessandro Bastoni, Marcelo Brozovic and Romelu Lukaku only need one more yellow card to be suspended. If they get a yellow card in tomorrow's game against Parma, they will miss the game against Atalanta.
For me the next game is always the most important one. I don’t care about stupid calculations,
" Conte claimed.
“If someone gets a yellow card, someone else will play the nex game. I do not want to give points away.”
