Inter, Inzaghi a confronto con la squadra: Brozovic inceppato senza Calhanoglu

Inter, Inzaghi compared to the team: the Calhanoglu ‘case’

We expected a balanced championship and, judging from these first three games, we had guessed right. Six teams at the top of the table with 7 points, Inter following one point behind while Juve are still at 5 by virtue of the two draws against Sampdoria and Roma. Inzaghi’s Inter remain close despite the performance provided in Rome against Lazio is completely to be reviewed. Inzaghi spoke at length with his family in Appiano, the attempt is to correct the mistakes right away. At the gates for the Nerazzurri there is Cremonese who will be the springboard to the very delicate derby with Milan and the first of the Champions League against Bayern. In the light of this mini cycle, I believe that there are many reflections to be made.

DEFENSE CHAPTER – Too many careless mistakes. The action that leads to Felipe Anderson’s goal is due, in my opinion, to an error of assessment of the whole department. Marco’s he sees Anderson behind him but does not accelerate his pace to cover the free space, leaving the Brazilian all the time necessary for the right insertion of the Lazio player. I noticed a lack of competitive nastiness and a little bit of general devolution. As he rightly said Inzaghi after the match, a team like Inter cannot afford to take such a goal especially when the result of the match is still in the balance.

GAGLIARDINI-CALAHNOGLU – Inzaghi chooses, as happened last year, to insert the quantity of Gagliardini from the beginning, giving up the technique and the insertions of Calhanoglu. She move that, in hindsight, she turned out to be unhappy. Nothing against the number 5, but I believe that in his Inter experience the former Atalanta has proved to be a good substitute and not a big match starter. Giving up Calhanoglu, always according to my point of view, Brozovic’s freedom of movement was taken away and the team’s engine was consequently jammed. A decision which, perhaps, even the Nerazzurri coach regretted. May it serve as a warning for the upcoming delicate races. Inter’s basic midfield is for many the most complete in Serie A. The three owners, in one year, met and integrated perfectly and Calha never made us regret his predecessor Eriksen. If you want to impose the game and help the spikes to be refueled, Calhanoglu cannot be ignored.

LUKAKU AND INZAGHI CHOICES – I start from the assumption that Lukaku, as long as the result is in the balance and he is fine, must remain on the field. The Belgian is not 100% on the contrary, maybe he reaches 60% but, for me, it matters little. Romelu helps the team to rise and alone keeps all the opposing defense apprehensive. On the Belgian there must always be at least two and it is no small thing. I would not have removed Lukaku and Dumfries at that precise moment of the 1-1 match.

EXAGERATIONS – Expressing opinions (which being such can obviously be discussed) is legitimate, but the criticism of Inter seen in Rome must not lead to inappropriate cosmic pessimism. Inter have struggled at the beginning of the season also in past years, both with Conte and Inzaghi. The Nerazzurri team has impressive players who need more time to get in shape. There is that, lacking the necessary clarity of thought, mistakes are also made in which players of this level should not stumble. I think the coach and the team have shown they know how to do it, a defeat at the beginning of the season cannot question all the good things that have been done to date.
