After a near-crisis start that saw Inter Milan winning only one of their first four matches, the Nerazzurri have reeled off a five-game win streak across Serie A and the UEFA Champions League, per Sky Sports. They look to make it six and continue their climb up the domestic table when they travel to face 13th-place SPAL on Sunday in a Round Eight match that will live stream from Stadio Paolo Mazza.
Despite grabbing just nine points from their first seven matches, SPAL — an acronym for Società Polisportiva Ars et Labor, or “Art and Work Society Sports Club” — has won three matches, including an upset of ninth-place Parma, leading Inter boss Lucian Spalletti to warn his squad against taking their Sunday opponents lightly, and that their Champions League qualification hopes hang on every result.
“We know of the dangers in this fixture. I hear the Champions League theme tune before every game and the players will hear it ahead of SPAL too. If someone can’t hear it in their minds, then play it on their phone,” Spalletti said, according to Tribal Football. “I liked the mentality of the last few games, but I have to see if it is really under our skin or if it washes off in the shower. As long as our victories make headline news, it means we aren’t yet at the level we need to be.”

Coming off a 2-1 Champions League victory over Dutch title-holder PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday, and a 2-0 blanking of Cagliari in league play the previous Saturday, Inter will be playing their third match in nine days — but the squad should receive an infusion of energy from the return of Croatian international Sime Vrsaljko on Sunday, according to Sempre Inter.
The defender and World Cup finalist will likely allow Danilo D’Ambrosio to rest after the rush of fixtures over that past two weeks.
