Player Ratings – Fiorentina 1 – 1 Inter: Another Day Another Draw
Inter managed to get a point away against Fiorentina after Giovanni Simeone scored the equalizer in the dying seconds of the match to prevent the Nerazzurri from going home with all three points. The Nerazzurri followed up a poor first half with a decent second half performance where they took the lead via Mauro Icardi’s 10th goal in 12 matches against Fiorentina.
Samir Handanovic – 6,5: Made a one or two typical Batmanovic saves throughout the match. Helpless on the goal where Simeone was allowed time and space.
Joao Cancelo – 7: Continues to give good performances on the right side of defence. Great crosses & corners throughout the match, which led to the goal.
Milan Skriniar – 7: Stopped Fiorentina from going 1 on 1 against Handanovic at least 5 or 6 times thanks to last minute tackles. World class again and Inter’s best player on the night.
Andrea Ranocchia – 7: Played his heart out for Inter despite being injured. Gave everything he had and then some until he physically couldn’t play anymore.
Davide Santon – 7: Started on the left but before the match was over he’d played on the right flank as well as in the middle of defence. Solid and loyal.
Roberto Gagliardini – 6: Poor first half followed up with a decent second half where he proved what a safe passer of the ball he is with 88% completion rate.
Matias Vecino – 6: Works his socks off in every game & today was no exception. Still waiting on his first goal for Inter after having a decent shot on target.
Joao Mario – 4,5: Unwatchable at the moment. Looks like he’s playing in slow-motion. Can’t get a single thing right on the pitch & embarrassing attitude.
Borja Valero – 5,5: Did not have the best of nights on his return to his old stomping ground. At his best when he plays deeper rather then behind Icardi.
Ivan Perisic – 6: A better performance today by the Croatian winger who looks to be working his way back to form. Looks like he wants to play again.
Mauro Icardi – 6,5: Scored a typical poachers goal getting on the end of Cancelo’s cross. Works very hard for the team & creates chances for his teammates.
Henrique Dalbert – 6: Good impact when coming on, especially defensively. Due to how the match looked he couldn’t press forward but his form is rising.
Yuto Nagatomo – 5,5: Didn’t look like his usual energetic self due to fever he’s been suffering from and wouldn’t have been brought on if it wasn’t for Ranocchia’s injury.
Antonio Candreva – N/A: Came on in the 82nd minute and had a chance to score but looked like the rest had done him good.
Luciano Spalletti – 6.5: Given the players he has at his disposal there is nothing he could have done differently. Great team talk ahead of 2nd half that had desired effect.
Paolo Valeri – 6,5: Got most if not every important decision right. Very consistent regarding the level of physicality on the pitch.
Inter – 6: A step forward offensively speaking in the second half. Defensively team is very solid just need to improve in front of goal.
Do you think Icardi deserved a higher rating? Was this the last we saw of Joao Mario in an Inter shirt? Who do you think was Inter’s best player on the night?
