Inter’s lack of goals has been at the heart of their downturn in form since the beginning of February, and part of the problem is that their midfielders have not been finding the back of the net.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who argue that it has not just been the striking who have been misfiring in front of goal and highlighted the lack of goals from midfield.

Over the past one hundred days, Inter’s midfield has produced a grand total of one goal, in the form of Nicolo Barella’s strike against Venezia in January.

Before this, the most recent goal from a Nerazzurri midfielder in Serie A had been Roberto Gagliardini’s goal against Salernitana in December, while Stefano Sensi scored the extra time winner against Empoli in the Coppa Italia.

This is a stark contrast to the situation in November and early December when Hakan Calhanoglu in particular went on an extraordinary run to score five goals and assist six.

The 28-year-old’s last goal came against Cagliari on December 12, however, and this long wait for another has become emblematic of his and the entire midfield’s struggle to realize any decisive contributions in the final third.
