Inter’s issues with accuracy from the penalty spot were highlighted when Federico Dimarco missed the decisive penalty in their draw against Atalanta at the San Siro yesterday evening.

Italian news outlet FCInter1908 note that in terms of their strike rates from the spot over their career, only one player in the Nerazzurri’s squad can boast over 80% of their penalties having been scored, in the form of summer arrival Hakan Calhanoglu.

As was seen against La Dea, the ability to convert penalties is an important facet of turning performances into results.

Dimarco stepped up to take the decisive spot kick with Calhanoglu and Lautaro Martinez having been removed from the pitch, and his effort struck the crossbar, preventing the Nerazzurri from getting a potentially winning goal.

Last season Romelu Lukaku was the Nerazzurri’s first-choice penalty taker, and the Belgian was one of the most reliable men around and gave the team a sense of security when looking to convert a penalty.

After his sale to Chelsea over the summer, however, Inter must sort out their penalty-taking situation, and based on career precedent, only Calhanoglu has anything like a clinical edge when taking them.

The penalty accuracy rates of Inter players is as follows:

Edin Dzeko: scored 11 out of 21 (52.3%)

Ivan Perisic: scored 4 out of 8 (50%)

Alexis Sanchez: scored 4 out of 12 (33.3%)

Joaquin Correa: scored 1 out of 3 (33.3%)

Lautaro Martinez: scored 6 out of 8 (75%)

Hakan Calhanoglu: scored 20 out of 23 (86.9%)
