Inter have conceded goals in the first half of their last three games, despite not conceding at all in the first half of their first six games of the season in the league, according to a report from the official Inter site in association with statistics outlet Opta.
The Nerazzurri, who drew 2-2 against Parma yesterday, have been plagued with a busy schedule that has seen coach Antonio Conte be forced to play the same group of players regularly due to a series of injuries that’s lowered the squad’s depth. Their previous three first half performances may be an effect of this.
In Inter’s first six games of the season, against Lecce, Cagliari, Udinese, Milan, Lazio and Sampdoria, they didn’t concede at all in the first half. However, since then, in their games against Juventus, Sassuolo and Parma they have shown some defensive weaknesses in the first half that’s allowed their opponents to hit the net before half time.
