Simone Inzaghi’s Substitutions Partly Responsible For Inter Loss To Lazio, Italian Media Argue

Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi was not able to get his substitutions right in the second half of the Nerazzurri’s Serie A clash with Lazio yesterday and this was partly why his team fell to their first Serie A defeat of the season.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who argue that the coach’s changes weakened his team at the crucial moment when they lost control of the match.

Inzaghi’s substitutions so far this season in Serie A have earned him praise, with his bold quadruple-substitution against Sassuolo having helped to overhaul a match in which his team had looked second best until the alterations.

However, against his former team Lazio the Italian tactician changed the balance in wide areas by moving Federico Dimarco back and shifting Matteo Darmian over to the left in order to accommodate Denzel Dumfries.

For the Corriere, this was a major factor in causing his team to look weaker at covering spaces and keeping Lazio out, as the starting setup had worked to make up for key absences in the team.

Meanwhile, the impact of Argentines Lautaro Martinez and Joaquin Correa from the bench was not enough to get a result for the team, as they were not able to improve the team going forward.

Biancocelesti coach Maurizio Sarri, by contrast, brought on Luis Alberto and Manuel Lazzari in the second half to add more pace and technical quality to his team, and these changes were significant in giving Lazio the impetus to go on and win the game.
