Former Italian national team central midfielder Giancarlo Marocchi has shared his belief that there are more unknowns related to Juventus this season than there are to Inter following Inter’s win over Benevento on Wednesday evening.

Inter ran out comfortable 5-2 winners over last season’s Serie B champions with Romelu Lukaku scoring twice and Roberto Gagliardini, Achraf Hakimi and Lautaro Martinez all also scoring.

“Inter showed that they are really aiming to win the Scudetto. This is what I expected from the Nerazzurri’s match against Benevento,” he explained whilst present in the studios of Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia yesterday afternoon.

“Inter and Juve were already on par. The unknown is Pirlo for Juve, Inter have zero. The group is good and remains good. As an absolute value, Skriniar is very strong but does not fit in well with the other ten players. At this point it’s better to cash in, have Ranocchia be the reserve and D’Ambrosio to play with Darmian.”

Marocchi, who spent most of his career at Juventus, then spoke on Alexis Sanchez being handed the start over Lautaro Martinez at the Stadio Ciro Vigorito.

“When you have players so strong on the bench, you have to use them every now and then as a starter. It is clear that Lautaro will remain the starter and the Chilean deserves to play.”

He then went on to speak about Christian Eriksen, who has continued to struggle to assert himself at Inter, and the midfield rotation that Inter go through during matches.

“When Eriksen plays I would not speak of him as being an attacking midfielder. Conte rotates the three midfielders a lot, Brozovic wasn’t always there in front of the defence to get the ball. The midfielers rotate and one of the three arrives in that box but after the pass to the attackers which is fundamental for Inter.”

He then touched briefly upon the shaky moments that Inter had during the match and how they managed to get off with most of them.

“Inter had messed up as much as possible but when you have strong players, playing badly and not smoothly, it resolves the game anyway.”
