Inter’s disappointing goalless draw against Roma yesterday gives Juventus the opportunity to return to the top of the league table, if they can best a strong Lazio side in Rome this evening, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Turin based newspaper Tuttosport.

The report details how the Nerazzurri lacked killer instincts in last night’s game, an instinct that must come naturally if they are to compete with the Bianconeri for the league title this season, especially considering the way Juventus always manage to win games that seem destined to end negatively for them.

Despite the dropped points, however, Inter still played well yesterday, the report continues.  The Nerazzurri’s strong defence and surprisingly competent midfield ensured that the performance wasn’t too concerning, and the heroics of Roma’s goalkeeper, Antonio Mirante, were the only things keeping the Nerazzurri from taking all three points.

The first half was an exciting tactical battle between both coaches, with Antonio Conte and Paulo Fonseca both approaching the game positively and showing a good understanding of both their strengths and their opponents’, the report highlights.

Whilst Conte worked to pass the ball quickly to the attackers, often with long passes due to the reduced quality of the midfield, Fonseca channeled the ball constantly through Lorenzo Pellegrini, due to his strong control in the center of the pitch.
