Inter’s Serie A clash with Torino this evening will see a number of individual duels all over the pitch take place, but one of the most interesting will be the one between Ivan Perisic and Wilfried Singo.
This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who characterize the head-to-head between the pair as a “battle between generations” with both players key to their respective teams’ style of play.
Perisic has been one of the Nerazzurri’s standout players this season, with the Croat’s consistent displays on the left wing important to stretching play and contributing heavily at both ends of the pitch.
Singo, meanwhile, has played a similar role for the Granata on the opposite flank, with coach Ivan Juric using wide players heavily in a similar manner to his Inter opposite number Simone Inzaghi.
Both players will be looking to gain territory and influence, and to show their prowess both in attack and defense, but they come at it from different sides of the experience gap.
Perisic is one of the most experienced players in Inter’s squad, and a top player of the generation on the way out, whilst Singo is still a player with the bulk of his career in front of him.
The Croat and the Ivorian will go head to head this evening in Turin, and the outcome of this generational battle will likely play an important role in the outcome of the match as a whole.
