Inter outclassed Bologna on Match Day 4 of the Serie A by 6-1 at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan’s San Siro district.
The Nerazzurri gave he perfect reaction to the defeat midweek in the Champions League against Real Madrid by going out there and completely dominating Bologna from the first minute.
Samir Handanovic – 6.5: Perfect first half for Samir and a welcome return to form. Made a crucial save, came out to catch a couple of high balls. Backing up the talk finally.
Milan Skriniar – 7: Skriniar showed some signs of good form at the start of the season and he’s just getting better with each game. Deserved to score from that corner.
Stefan De Vrij – 7: Nobody notices Stefan de Vrij because he never does anything that isn’t needed in that moment. Very efficient and still probably very under-rated.
Alessandro Bastoni – 7: Bastoni is one of the many irreplaceable for Inter and is adding to his impressive repertoire of skills by the minute. Calm collected and a superstar.
Denzel Dumfries – 7: Denzel probably nailed down his spot with that performance. Always found space and used it very well with his explosive pace. Good defensive work.
Nicolo Barella – 7: Inzaghi switched things around in midfield today and Barella switched from the right to the left side of midfield. Makes it look so easy. Renewal please
Marcelo Brozovic – 6.5: Brozo made an effort to quicken up his passing and play today. When he is on song, not many midfielders are better in this deep lying role. Epic.
Matias Vecino – 6.5: Matias can be so efficient one minute and make a simple mistake the next, but when the ball is in the area he is in a completely different zone. Class.
Federico Dimarco – 7: Directly responsible for at least two of the goals and made a lot of brilliant runs throughout. His left foot is magic, and he was born an Interista.
Joaquin Correa – 5 : First start for his new club did not go according to plan. De Silvestri made a heavy tackle and hopefully his hip injury isn’t as bad. Didn’t get to do much
Lautaro Martinez – 7: Fantastic 67 mins for Lautaro, got a goal and hit the post, but his overall play was top drawer. The Bologna defense wont sleep well tonight.
Edin Dzeko – 7.5: Edin didn’t probably expect to play for more than 10-20 minutes today but he was ready when he came on. Finally looked like it clicked with Lautaro.
Andrea Ranocchia – 6: Brought on to give De Vrij some much needed rest and did not have much to do as Inter were already home and dry with a 5-goal lead.
Alexis Sanchez – 6.5: Always fun to watch Alexis when he is fit and raring to go. A lot of neat touches and brilliant play making in his 23 mins. Can be devastating if kept fit.
Aleksander Kolarov – 6: Not much work to do defensively as the game was done and Inter were merely playing out time. Bastoni got some time to rest before Fiorentina.
Roberto Gagliardini – 6: Another return from injury for a player that Simone Inzaghi has always liked. Did some of the dirty work today and looked a little bit rusty.
Simone Inzaghi – 7: Perfect game plan, great starting lineup. The wingbacks troubled Bologna who play narrower than most teams. Good use of subs to rest key players
Giovanni Ayroldi – 7: Let things flow a bit too much today but again no major decisions or flashpoints to worry about. Both teams wouldn’t have any complaints for sure.
Inter – 7.5: After 2 games without a win, Inter got a comfortable win which gives them a huge shot in confidence to face an in-form Fiorentina on Tuesday night.
