Inter took the right approach in their match with Juventus at the San Siro on Sunday, but were nevertheless unable to see out the win and had to settle for a point.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who describe the match as a “tactical masterpiece” for the Nerazzurri’s defensive efforts in the second half, though suggesting that they may have settled for a one-goal advantage too soon.
Inter had more of the initiative in the first half as Max Allegri’s Bianconeri side mainly looked to restrict them, and the Nerazzurri went into the break a goal ahead thanks to an early Edin Dzeko strike.
However, in the second half, Simone Inzaghi’s men dropped deeper and looked to deny the Bianconeri space, largely preventing any clear chances but also failing to test Juventus keeper Wojcjech Szczeszny.
It was this conservatism that gave the Bianconeri a way back into the game as they were able to snatch a point with just one goal late on from a penalty, but Tuttosport nevertheless commends the Nerazzurri’s tactical approach.
