Inter defense continues to be the team’s biggest strength and it not only stands out in Italy but also Europe. So far this season, Inter have allowed 25 goals in 31 games, second best only to Juventus in Serie A. In broader competition, that of European clubs, the defense guided by Handanovic, Skriniar and De Vrij is doing well too, ranked 7th among the top five European leagues.
These numbers are worthy of a Champions League quarterfinals and will become the foundation to build around for the future. Especially since at home, Handanovic has only allowed 7 goals in the league, that is the best in Europe (on par with Atletico Madrid). And the biggest challenges ahead are at the San Siro against Roma and Juventus. Godin will join an already convincing department in the summer and probably a right back will also arrive.
