SempreInter.com Player Ratings – Inter 2 – 0 S.P.A.L.: The Perfect Run Continues
Inter’s 100% record in the Serie A continues after a goal each side of the half-time interval from Mauro Icardi and Ivan Perisic led Luciano Spalletti’s men to a 2-0 win against a very well organized SPAL that proved a difficult nut to crack.
Samir Handanovic – 6: A difficult match for Handanovic in the sense that had nothing to do for long periods of time but did well when called upon.
Danilo D’Ambrosio – 6.5: Got an assist for Perisic goal & gave an all-round good performance. Seems to thrive playing in this system.
Milan Skriniar – 7: So far he has been the best signing of the Serie A. Sensational movement, tackling, marking & passing. Unlucky not to score.
Joao Miranda – 6.5: As reliable as ever in the back directing Inter’s defence. Doesn what he needs to do without any fuss. Such an important player.
Dalbert – 6: Spalletti said he needs to work on the defensive aspect of his game but so far that’s been the best part of his game as he’s been very solid defensively.
Borja Valero – 6.5: Inter’s midfield maestro is what the team has been lacking since Thiago Motta. Defends well & dictates Inter’s tempo when attacking.
Roberto Gagliardini – 6,5: Looking more & more like the player we saw last season. Won practically every single ball in the middle of the pitch today.
Antonio Candreva – 6: Seems to be enjoying himself under Spalletti. Made far fewer mistakes than usual as well as being very useful in attack & in defence.
Joao Mario – 7: Said after the match that he enjoys playing in this set up & it shows. Plays football with his brain as well as his legs.
Ivan Perisic – 7: Scored a sensational goal on the volley to wrap up the 3 points & looks better than ever. Has grown into a superstar at Inter.
Mauro Icardi – 7: Still not 100% fit physically yet plays the best football he’s played in his career. Yet another goal brings his tally to 5 in 3 matches. Killer.
Marcelo Brozovic – 6: Came on for Joao Mario in the 66th minute & did well. Doesn’t make as many mistakes as before & his attitude has changed completely.
Matias Vecino – 6: Replaced former Fiorentina team-mate Borja Valero in the 78th minute. Did what he always does: a good job without much fuss.
Eder – NA: Was brought on in the 87 th minute for Antonio Candreva & didn’t play long enough to be marked.
Luciano Spalletti – 6,5: Yet another win after getting the tactics spot on again. Made the right changes at the right time. Has the team following his orders to a t.
Claudio Gavillucci – 6: Good performance from the referee & his team. The VAR is a good idea but the decision making process takes too long.
Inter – 6,5: Joao Mario said it best after the match: “Important to win despite not playing at our best.” A day at the office type of performance.
