Inter were unimpressive in their win over Spezia, but Antonio Conte was not troubled as he stressed the importance of consistent results. Antonio Conte focused on Inter’s stability instead of an unspectacular result after a 2-1 victory over Spezia saw them stretch their winning streak to six in Serie A.
Inter failed to get to San Siro and in the first half produced precious few possibilities that saw promoted Spezia have a greater share of possession.
But Achraf Hakimi struck to round off a fine move early in the second half, and Romelu Lukaku’s penalty left Spezia with too much to do, even with a late consolation deep into stoppage time.
“We are at the sixth victory in a row and these wins are welcome because by giving consistency you remain at [near] the top of the standings,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“We knew it would be difficult, Spezia is an integrated team that has all the spaces locked, they have powerful players physically. We didn’t build a lot in the first half. It’s a good win because we play every three days and there’s a bit of exhaustion. Now let’s grit our teeth and try to finish this [fixture] block in the best way. It’s pointless to hide. Without being afraid, we must have bravery.”
