Inter’s 3-1 win over Hellas Verona last night has shown that the Nerazzurri have replaced their big departures well.
As reported in today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, it was never going to be easy for the Milanese club to move on following the departures of two key players in Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi.
However, Lautaro Martinez and Joaquin Correa’s strong performances last night proved that steps forward can be taken confidently.
Lautaro proved relentless in his goal and Correa immediately managed to prove his worth to the Nerazzurri faithful with his brace.
Inter’s buildup was a little less than fluid, however, and the midfield suffered yesterday. Apart from Hakan Calhanoglu, the rest of the players in the department struggled to impress.
Nicolo Barella failed to be decisive and Marcelo Brozovic did not make a strong impact on the match, being replaced by Arturo Vidal in the second half.
