Inter strikers Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku failed to find the back of the net yesterday in the Nerazzurri’s goalless draw against Roma, making yesterday’s game the first time this season that the Nerazzurri haven’t scored in a game, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
The report details how yesterday’s game broke the Nerazzurri’s five game winning streak, giving Juventus the opportunity to overtake the Milanese club this evening if they can beat Lazio in Rome. However, yesterday’s draw isn’t a cause for concern.
The report highlights how the point achieved against the Giallorossi was still a good result, considering their amazing performance in last night’s game. The Roman club played a tight game, with a strong defence, and therefore Inter fans shouldn’t be too concerned about the missed opportunity.
It’s unreasonable to expect Inter to win every game, the report continues, and regardless of the result the Nerazzurri still played well. A defence led by veteran defender Diego Godin was insurmountable for the Giallorossi, showing that Inter have a strong defensive partnership as well as their attacking duo.
Finally, the report comments on how both Lautaro and Lukaku haven’t suffered so much in a game so far this season, with the Giallorossi’s defence proving too difficult to crack. Growing pains, but nothing to be too concerned about.
