Italian Media Highlight How Inter Have Dropped 11 Points This Season When In The Lead

Inter have dropped eleven points in Serie A this season, but in each occasion they have done so they had initially taken the lead in the match.

This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who highlight the Nerazzurri’s struggles with seeing out games in which they have the advantage.

After twelve matches played, Inter sit on 25 points which is enough to see them sit third in the place but still has them seven points behind city rivals AC Milan as well as Napoli at the top of the table.

The eleven points dropped, four draws and a loss against Lazio, all came in matches where the Nerazzurri had scored the first goal, suggesting that there are issues with protecting leads that must be addressed.

Inter twice went ahead against Sampdoria before surrendering the lead on both occasions, while a late collapse against Lazio saw an early lead erased after they had held on for an hour looking comfortable, going on to lose 3-1.

Against Atalanta, the Nerazzurri took another early advantage but in the end had to come back from behind in a match which finished 2-2, while they saw an early lead against the Rossoneri in the derby quickly undone by a Stefan de Vrij own goal, missing several chances to re-take the lead including a penalty.

The controversial late penalty from which Juventus equalized at the San Siro is just one more example of the Nerazzurri’s woes when protecting a lead in big matches, something which appears to be more than just bad luck.
