Marcelo Brozovic was Inter’s highest-rated player in Sunday’s Corriere dello Sport after the Croatian’s match-winning performance against Sampdoria.

Brozovic scored the 94th-minute goal that secured a crucial 1-0 success for Luciano Spalletti’s side at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, after Radja Nainggolan and Kwadwo Asamoah had both seen their strikers disallowed for offside after VAR reviews.

However it was the midfielder’s all-round performance which impressed on Saturday and it received praise from the Rome-based publication, who underlined his ability to get on the ball and play good passes in the most difficult moments of the match.

Elsewhere, there were positive ratings for Asamoah, Milan Skriniar and Antonio Candreva, who all received 6.5 – as did Spalletti himself – while Samir Handanovic, Miranda and Ivan Perisic were awarded 6.

Six players however – Danilo D’Ambrosio, Matias Vecino, Matteo Politano, Radja Nainggolan, Mauro Icardi and Keita Balde – were given a rating of 5.5 and attracted criticism for their negative performances.
