Italian Media Brand Inter’s Performance In Win Against Sassuolo As “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde”

Inter showed virtually the worst of themselves in the first half of yesterday’s comeback win against Sassuolo, while during the second half they could hardly have looked a more different side, in a performance that Italian media have characterized as like “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.”

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who argue that the Nerazzurri were a “disaster” up until the substitutes which caused them to play at their best and take three points from the Mapei Stadium.

Inter went into the interval a goal behind to a strong Neroverdi performance, and in truth could have been facing an even worse deficit on the balance of play.

Ten minutes into the second half, however, coach Simone Inzaghi took the drastic step of making four substitutions to change the way his team played, and his action worked as intended, seeing the Nerazzurri look like a much more composed side and find all the answers as they outplayed Alessio Dionisi’s men and overhauled the deficit.

For the Gazzetta, however, the nature of this performance was worrying, and showed that the Nerazzurri must find a way to play better from the first minute of games rather than constantly relying on changes in approach to undo the damage done by their “Mr. Hyde” selves.
