Italian journalist Sandro Piccinini believes that Inter showed great resilience to come back and win Tuesday’s match against Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, the journalist highlighted the fact that the Nerazzurri had to find a way to show their quality after being put in a difficult situation, and they did.

Inter travelled to Tuscany off the back of an emphatic home win against Bologna, but their task against Vincenzo Italiano’s men was always likely to be a more no difficult one, and so it proved.

The Nerazzurri were outplayed by a physical, high-pressing La Viola for much of the first half, deservedly going in a goal behind at the break.

Simone Inzaghi needed to find a way to get his team to look more in control, and he did, with a much improved performance during the second half seeing the Nerazzurri overhaul the deficit with a clinical performance, controlling the tempo of the game and hitting precise counterattacks as their opponents looked to tire.

“The reaction was tremendous,” Piccinini said of Inter’s second half comeback. “They had a moment when they were in the middle of a storm, a hurricane. Coming out of it almost intact, with dry clothes, coming out after so long was a tough test.”

He went on, “A test of strength is when you are capable of suffering. They did it with quality, they didn’t win with a fluke or an own goal. Additionally, they looked strong in the physical aspect.”
