Inter have now gone three matches without scoring across all competitions, highlighting more than ever their need for a Plan B going forward.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who argue that the Nerazzurri’s inability to change things up when their attack isn’t working was on full display against the Griffone.
Simone Inzaghi decided to replace the out-of-form Lautaro Martinez with Alexis Sanchez in the starting eleven at the Marassi, but instead of improving the team this only made them look even less likely to score.
When Martinez came on for the Chilean in the second half he showed some flashes, but in the end nothing that delivered a telling chance to score.
Meanwhile, Felipe Caicedo made his Nerazzurri debut, making a cameo appearance against the team that he joined on loan from in January, but he too did little to impact the game positively in an attacking sense.
Between all these players, the impression given is that the Nerazzurri are struggling to find attacking chemistry between the strikers they have at the moment, whilst goals from midfield and set pieces are also not currently looking likely.
Tuttosport argue that Inzaghi must work to find a Plan B, suggesting that using Matias Vecino as a physical, aerially dominant outlet to progress the ball past pressure could be one idea when the team have no other way of moving it quickly past pressure.
