Inter defender Danilo D’Ambrosio knows getting a win over Venezia tonight will be important in ensuring the momentum is maintained for the season.
Speaking to InterTV ahead of the match, the 33-year-old stressed that winning the final game before the international break was important to end the Nerazzurri’s January on a high.
Inter had a turbulent January, seeing their first match against Bologna postponed before a win over Lazio in Serie A, a draw against Atalanta and dramatic extra-time wins over Juventus and Empoli in the Supercoppa and Coppa respectively.
Now one more hurdle awaits Inter in the form of Venezia, who travel to the San Siro in search of a result to help them in the relegation battle.
For the Nerazzurri, this game represents a final chance to grab three points before heading into the break and then facing AC Milan, Napoli and Liverpool in massive fixtures.
“It’s the last game before the break,” D’Ambrosio said, “and then we come back in two weeks for another massive series of games.”
“The important thing is to finish this mini-tournament with three points,” he continued. “We have never let ourselves be affected by playing before or after our rivals, we give everything, regardless of the results of other teams.”
The defender continued: “The fans have always been there with us and they always will be, they showed it again in the Coppa Italia and they will certainly show it again today.”
