On Sunday Frank De Boer’s men proved they can rise to the occasion, putting on a great performance to win the Derby D’Italia. Today they face a lesser but still respectable opponent, the likes of which Inter has struggled to beat so far this season. The players cannot afford to get cocky or lazy when they face Empoli today, they will have to work just as hard to show they can be a team to be feared every matchday, not just when facing rivals. A loss, draw, or lackadaisical performance could ruin the good work done over the weekend, so let’s hope they keep up the pressure and pick up all three points.
