Inter suffered “half a defeat” when they drew with AC Milan in the derby yesterday evening by dropping points in a match where they had multiple chances to win.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, who argue that the Nerazzurri will feel as though they should have done better with the chances that they created, while the Rossoneri will feel that the draw was virtually as good as a win after they held off their city rivals in the table.
The most glaring missed chance to go ahead for the Nerazzurri will have been Lautaro Martinez’s penalty which was saved by Ciprian Tatarusanu, but the Argentine also missed two other clear-cut chances.
Meanwhile, Arturo Vidal looked likely to score as he latched onto an Edin Dzeko square ball only a few yards from goal, but a last-ditch double block by Pierre Kalulu ensured that the Rossoneri did not go behind.
These moments will not be ones that the Nerazzurri want to look back on, as they could not make the most of the chances that came from their good play, and remain seven points behind the Rossoneri and Napoli after a very good chance to make up ground.
