Former Lazio goalkeeper Luca Marcheigani believes that Inter showed once again that they are getting the best out of everyone in their squad with their victory over Lazio.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia after the match, Marchegiani highlighted the fact that the Nerazzurri got on the scoresheet through two defenders in order to get the job done against the Biancocelesti.
Defender Alessandro Bastoni scored for the first time in more than two years to put his team ahead, drilling a shot into the bottom left corner from outside the box.
After Lazio’s Ciro Immobile took advantage of a mix-up at the back to draw the visitors level, it was up to Milan Skriniar’s prowess in the air to grab a winner for the Nerazzurri in front of the San Siro.
Once again it was a confident and composed performance by the Nerazzurri, and Marchegiani feels that it is emblematic of how this team that the two defenders got the decisive goals.
“It was a tough match,” he said, “an important victory for Inter.”
“Scoring alongside Skriniar, Bastoni’s goal showed how Inzaghi is really drawing on all the resources available to him at Inter,” he went on.
He explained that “Bastoni both scored a goal and assisted one. Since last year Bastoni has started evolving, first under Conte who saw him push forward more.”
“He is doing it even more and now,” Marchegiani analyzed, “he is doing it especially against teams that have only one central striker.”
“Inter are comfortable leaving de Vrij one-on-one with a central striker,” he concluded, “it’s no coincidence that both Skriniar and Bastoni scored here.”
