Inter played out a goalless draw against Shakhtar Donetsk third consecutive match, in tonight’s Champions League clash between the two sides at the Olimpiyskiy National Sports Complex in Kiev.

The Nerazzurri created more than enough to break the deadlock, especially in the first half when Nicolo Barella hit the crossbar and where Edin Dzeko missed an absolute sitter.

Samir Handanovic – 6: Difficult match to rate given he barely had anything to do all match except for a chance where Milan Skriniar saved the day.

Milan Skriniar – 8: Outstanding performance by Inter’s Slovakian wall who stopped everything that came his way as well as a goal saving last ditch tackle.

Stefan De Vrij – 7: The elegant Dutchman gave another stable performance at the heart of Inter’s defence combining well with both Skriniar and Bastoni.

Alessandro Bastoni – 7: Much better performance in every possible way by the young Italian central defender compared to the Atalanta game. Form rising.

Denzel Dumfries – 6: Defensively a very solid performance but a step back offensively misplacing a lot of crosses and mistiming a lot of runs.

Nicolo Barella – 6,5: Very good in the first half when he dominated the midfield with his runs, passing and creativity. Very unlucky to hit the crossbar.

Marcelo Brozovic – 6,5: Solid performance by the Croatian midfield maestro, especially in defence but just like Inter as a whole struggled in attack in second half.

Matias Vecino – 5,5: Decent first half but completely invisible in the second half and should have been brought off sooner before the 81st minute.

Federico Dimarco – 5: Had a bad day from the first minute to the the 81st minute when he was replaced by Ivan Perisic. Penalty miss still affecting him?

Lautaro Martinez – 5,5: Made a lot of individual technical mistakes which is rather unusual for him. His finishing still leaves quite a bit left to desire.

Edin Dzeko – 5,5: Missed yet another sitter which ended up being the difference between 1 and 3 points. Makes mistakes but works hard to rectify them.

Hakan Calhanoglu – 5: Brought on in the 55th minute for Brozovic but failed to have an impact yet again as he struggles to get into the right position and rhythm.

Joaquin Correa – 6: Came on in the 55th minute for Dzeko and struggled to impose himself on the game until the very end when his shot was saved by Pyatov.

Alexis Sanchez – 6: An OK performance by the Chilean international who replaced Lautaro Martinez in the 72nd minute. Still looks a bit rusty after injury.

Ivan Perisic – N/A: Replaced Federico Dimarco in the 81st minute and didn’t play long enough to be able to be rated.

Roberto Gagliardini – N/A: Substituted Matias Vecino in the 81st minute and didn’t play long enough to be able to be rated.

Simone Inzaghi – 6: Got his starting lineup and the defensive balance right in the first half whilst the team became too deep and passive in the second half.

Istvan Kovacs – 7: A good performance by the referee and his assistants getting every single major decision right as well as maintaining a consistent level.

Inter – 6: First decent defensive performance of the season but at the price of the attack which lacked bite, especially in the second half.
