The 2013–14 season was Football Club Internazionale Milano's 82nd consecutive season in the top-flight of Italian football. The club competed in Serie A and the Coppa Italia, finishing fifth in the league and qualifying for the 2014–15 UEFA Europa League.

Season overview[edit]

On 24 May 2013, five days after the conclusion of the 2012–13 Serie A, head coach Andrea Stramaccioni was fired[2] and replaced by Walter Mazzarri.[3] Without European football as a distraction, Inter finishes 2013–14 league in fifth place qualyfing for Europa League: on September 22, "Nerazzurri" side has achieved his largest away win in Serie A beating Sassuolo by 7–0.[4] Inter has managed to beat some records, such as most goals scored in away games (35) and goals scored by defenders (16): in opposition, it had collected most home draws (9) and fewest penalty kicks for (one, failing it).

This season has been the last for Argentine players Javier Zanetti (who made his debut in 1995, becoming captain in 1999), Esteban Cambiasso (who had played for Inter since 2004), Walter Samuel (signed in 2005) and Diego Milito (who arrived in 2009, just prior to Inter's treble-winning 2009–10 season).

Rules for classification: 1st points; 2nd head-to-head points; 3rd head-to-head goal difference; 4th goal difference; 5th number of goals scored; 6th public draw.
(Head-to-head record is applied for clubs with the same amount of points only once all matches between said clubs have been played)[21]
1Since the 2013–14 Coppa Italia champions Napoli and runners–up Fiorentina qualified for the 2014–15 European football season thus 4th, 5th and 6th in Serie A (barring any failure to receive a "UEFA licence" from the FIGC or a ban from European competition) would qualify for group stage, play-off round and third qualifying round respectively.
2The FIGC rejected the application of Parma for a UEFA license, because Parma had overdue tax debt; their place goes to seventh-place Torino, which has a UEFA license.
(C) = Champion; (R) = Relegated; (P) = Promoted; (E) = Eliminated; (O) = Play-off winner; (A) = Advances to a further round.
