Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi is still looking to find the right balance at the Nerazzurri and to have the club playing in a consistent and identifiable way.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who highlight the coach’s struggles to put his stamp on the team and find a balance between attack and defense.

Inter have not started the season badly, and on paper they have enjoyed a better start to the season than last campaign with the same number of points, more goals scored and fewer conceded than they had in an equivalent number of matches under Antonio Conte.

However, there remains a sense that the Nerazzurri cannot show solidity at the back while maintaining an effective counterattack as Conte had managed to have them doing as last season wore on.

Against Juventus on Sunday the team took an increasingly defensive shape and mostly denied the Bianconeri space, with the equalizer coming in the unfortunate circumstances of a soft VAR penalty.

The defensive strength showed will be taken as an encouraging sign, but less so was the lack of pace and incisiveness going the other way when the team won the ball and sought to counter quickly.

Meanwhile, Inzaghi has seen his team mostly struggle to defend leads, with the Bianconeri clash only the latest match in which they have dropped points despite scoring an early goal to go ahead.

The Nerazzurri thumped the likes of Genoa and Bologna after scoring early, but in the more difficult matches against Sampdoria, Atalanta, and Lazio they dropped points after scoring first, with the Juventus draw to be added to this list.

Inzaghi will see these among other issues, and know that work remains to be done to get the team to where he wants it to be.
