Another Serie A round, another 1-1 draw. Inter looked scared to get the 3 points last night. The Champions League qualification that the Nerazzurri management is aiming at this season looks like a distant dream. This is now the longest Inter have gone in the Serie A without a win in the club’s history.
Samir Handanovic – 5.5: Too static. He was captain last night but just kept looking at crosses in the first half instead of being proactive. Better 2nd half. Goal was not his fault.
Danilo D’Ambrosio – 5: Doesn’t look 100%. Got basics right and was beaten once in defence. Looked stable on the left side towards the end. Offered nothing in attack.
Milan Skriniar – 6: Another game another great performance. Was out of position only once during the game. Looks world class no matter what the situation is.
Joao Miranda – 6: Stable defender, always there to relieve Skriniar and Borja of any pressure on the ball. Took the initiative a little too much towards the end.
Henrique Dalbert – 5.5: Too scared. Didn’t venture forward but showed his ball winning ability in the first half. Looks composed when attacking. Lacks the confidence.
Borja Valero – 5.5: Under too much pressure. Needs someone to be playing closer to him. Still managed the regista role better than anyone else. Unlucky tonight.
Matias Vecino – 5: Didn’t get his passing right. Some woeful attempts in the first half. No matter who plays in this role/position the results are now the same.
Antonio Candreva – 5: Nothing changed. Same old ideas with the same old results. Booed off after an hour which is now the new normal. Cant get anything right.
Marcelo Brozovic – 6: Was obviously instructed to play quick and early passes. He got 1-2 right which led to chances but the others were just giveaways. Only quantity.
Ivan Perisic – 5: Just like the other wing. Devoid of ideas, looks out of touch, disinterested even. Shadow of the player who was efficient in front of goal.
Eder – 6: Ran around a lot, threw himself at 50-50’s and got an important goal. But then disappeared and was never in the right position to do anything.
Rafinha – 6.5: Brought the spark that was needed. Inter’s most creative player in his half an hour tonight. Never tried the same thing twice. Unpredictable.
Joao Cancelo – 5: The last game on the left side of defence seems to have broken his confidence. Was very poor in his 15 mins. Couldn’t get basics right.
Yann Karamoh – 6: There is a lot to like about Yann. Direct football, explosive pace. Yes he lacks experience but can he really be poorer than our “wingers”?
Luciano Spalletti – 5: The players have lost their minds. Icardi’s injury made things worse. His team don’t look like the guys who raced to the top of the league earlier.
Daniele Orsato – 4: Some poor decisions in the first half that we arent used to. Obvious corners missed, easy free kicks given. Not enough time added on. Poor.
Inter – 5: After the goal the team went to sleep and let Crotone dominate. Inter cant be too afraid to win and talk about getting to the Champions League.
Do you think some players deserved more or less? Which ones? Is it time to risk a little more on the younger players?
