Inter will hope that no players face disciplinary action for their part in the conflicts which followed their defeat against Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico yesterday.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the Nerazzurri will await the referee’s report for the match in the hopes that they can avoid suspensions following the controversial scenes.
Inter players had been visibly upset with Lazio for playing on and scoring from a counterattack despite the fact that Federico Dimarco was on the ground, confronting goalscorer Felipe Anderson for his decision to play on.
The rest of the match was tense and featured a few incidents of conflict, which also continued after the final whistle.
Biancocelesti defender Luiz Felipe will face a suspension for the straight red card shown to him after he jokingly jumped on the back of Inter’s Joaquin Correa, but it may not end there.
The Nerazzurri will be hoping that nothing in referee Massimo Irrati’s final report on the match will be deemed worthy of a suspension as they head into a key match against Juventus.
