Inter Milan has been on a dream run in the Champions League after winning six straight matches in the Serie A under the astute leadership of Simon Inzaghi. The team's remarkable form, exemplified by their dominance in the Italian Super Cup and their commanding lead in the Serie A standings, has ignited hopes of clinching prestigious titles and making a deep impact in European competition. 

Now as they are riding high on a winning spree, they are set to face Athletico Madrid on Tuesday. Inter Milan reached the finals of the Champions League last year only to lose 0-1 to Manchester United but this year they have been performing better than the last year thus winning the Italian Super Cup and have got a nine-point lead over Juventus with still a game in hand.

Simon Inzaghi who has been an inspirational coach for Inter Milan has always been looked at as a coach who can win domestic matches for fun but is not made for winning big titles. Inter currently trails reigning champions Napoli by just two points, whereas Napoli had already secured the Scudetto with five matches remaining at this stage last season. 

Despite this, Inter have scored one more goal and boast a superior goal difference compared to Napoli's stats after 24 games, indicating their strong performance as they aim to finish the season with a comfortable 16-point lead.

Simon Inzaghi opens up after sixth-straight victory

In their inspiring run this season, Inter Milan beat the tournament's bottom team Salernitana after beating Juventus and Roma in the earlier games. However, Milan's coach speaks up after their last victory over Salernitana. He said, 'We're now in that period where the matches are all close together so we're going to have to be good enough to react to problems," said Inzaghi after Friday's 4-0 thrashing of Salernitana."

He further added, "We're playing really well. It's difficult, you have to wait until the end of the season to make any conclusions." 

Inter and Atletico are poised to showcase their historically strong defenses against potent offenses this season. Inter's striking duo of Lautaro Martínez and Marcus Thuram has collectively scored 35 goals across all competitions, while Atletico's Álvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann partnership has notched up 37 goals for their team.
