Italian Journalist Mario Sconcerti: “Inter Won Against Fiorentina Playing Like A Great Team”

Italian journalist Mario Sconcerti believes that Inter showed all their quality with their comeback win against Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi yesterday evening.

Writing in his column for Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera published in today’s print edition, Sconcerti gave a glowing review of the Nerazzurri’s effort to overturn a one-goal deficit and run out winners from a difficult away ground.

Inter had looked imperious in their 6-1 rout of Bologna over the weekend, but their trip to Tuscany to face Vincenzo Italiano’s men always looked to be more difficult, and so it proved.

La Viola looked the better side by a considerable distance in the early stages of the match, going in at halftime deservedly ahead having only been kept from adding to their lead by a string of excellent stops by Nerazzurri captain Samir Handanovic.

In the second half, however, the Nerazzurri began to show flashes of the team that beat Bologna emphatically, and once they gained a foothold they picked off a Fiorentina side who could not press with the intensity that they had shown earlier in the encounter.

“Inter won in a classic way, so in the end as a great team,” Sconcerti writes, “a match in which in the first half they had been forced by their opponent to make a pile of mistakes.”

Of Fiorentina’s pressure he said, “It could not last, the difference in pace was too clear on the one hand and the innate danger of Inter on the other. To stay in the game, Fiorentina would have had to score another goal straight away, which they did come close to, but which they has always just missed.”

“Having exhausted themselves in recovering the ball,” he goes on, “it became Inter’s turn to come out with their disarming linearity. In general, Lautaro was missing in the great dance of Inter, Vlahovic was missing in that of Fiorentina, always inside the game, never really important.”

Of the Nerazzurri’ Sconcerti writes that “Inter are complete, Dzeko has made them tick, Inzaghi has perfected his intuition for the game dynamics. They can suffer a lot in parts of the match. but are never overwhelmed and you know they will soon recover.”

“Right now this is the team that has the most spontaneous resolve, in whatever way it shows itself. They have the strength to take the details of the match, they know how to build its details, such as the goal of Dzeko from a corner and the quick counters on those of Darmian and Perisic,” Sconcerti details.

“They are not stronger than Napoli,” he writes, “they are broader, they have more possibilities of creativity, the kind that ultimately leads to goals, already eighteen in five games. But they have few reserves and already the exit of Barella in the finale puts the superiority demonstrated in future discussion. Who would replace him?”
