Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi made a mistake in removing wing-back Denzel Dumfries from the pitch for the second half of yesterday evening’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who argue that the Dutchman had been one of the Nerazzurri’s more effective performers in the first half.

Dumfries has filled in well for the injured Matteo Darmian on the right in Inter’s past few matches, and the Corriere suggested that he continued in this vein, awarding him a 6.5/10 grade for his 45 minutes against Real in their player ratings for the match.

Inzaghi, however, decided to substitute the 25-year-old off at the beginning of the second half, bringing on Federico Dimarco in his place and shifting Danilo D’Ambrosio to right wing-back.

Both D’Ambrosio and Dimarco received middling 5.5/10 scores for their displays from the Corriere, who argue that Inter lost some of their quality in wide areas when the coach decided to take off Dumfries.
