Italian Media Highlight Inter’s Scudetto Credentials Through “Ugly Victories” In Serie A

Inter have managed to take seventeen points from their first matches, remaining undefeated, even while they have often looked to struggle in matches.

This has shown the ability of the team to find three points even when they are not at their best, in the view of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who highlight in today’s print edition the “ugly victories” in which Simone Inzaghi’s men have found solutions even while not at their best.

Inter have won three of their four away matches this season, despite having trailed at the interval in each of the matches that they won.

In each case, they found ways to overhaul the deficit, starting the match looking problematic but taking control when it was necessary to do so in the second half.

The Gazzetta notes that this is often how titles are won, and praise the team and manager Simone Inzaghi for finding their best in these key moments.

Inter’s defensive issues have been laid bare in first halves where they have looked to have been dominated by the likes of Fiorentina and Sassuolo, while key defender Stefan de Vrij has looked far from his best and summer signing Denzel Dumfries has yet to fully integrate into the team.

In spite of this, they sit on 17 points, five more than the 12 they had at this stage last season, while their 22 goals scored and 8 conceded this term are both superior to the 16 scored and 11 conceded by Antonio Conte’s Scudetto winners.

Inzaghi will have to find the right rhythm for his team as Conte did in order to get his team over the line, but for now they have shown the resilience and determination needed to weather early difficulties as they defend the Scudetto crown for the first time in eleven years.
