Inter played well against AC Milan and looked to have greater control of the match, but the outcome of the match yesterday evening turned on individual errors.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who argue that the Nerazzurri would have deserved more for their performance as a whole but that errors in key moments were what settled this edition of the derby.

Inter will have known how significant three points to catch up on their city rivals would have been in yesterday’s match, and they performed up to the level they needed to.

An early penalty came about from a clumsy challenge by Rossoneri midfielder Franck Kessie on former teammate Hakan Calhanoglu, the first major individual error of the match.

There was no error from the Turk who stepped up to take the penalty against his former side and duly dispatched it, but there was when Stefan de Vrij found himself lost on a set piece and turned Sandro Tonali’s cross into his own net to level the score minutes afterwards.

The Nerazzurri were awarded a second penalty in the first half for a bad challenge by Fode Ballo-Toure which had followed a major defensive lapse where he allowed Matteo Darmian to get into the area ahead of him.

However, Inter responded with an error of their own in the form of a Lautaro Martinez penalty which was not enough to beat Ciprian Tatarusanu, bailing out Ballo-Toure.

After these key moments, the standard of play was high and the Nerazzurri in particular had chances to score a winner which they blazed wide, but the 1-1 scoreline was ultimately a reflection of some key moments in which individual players got it wrong, with Martinez’s penalty the glaring one on the night for Inter.
