Legendary former Juventus midfielder Alessio Tacchinardi feels that Inter’s style of play has become too predictable compared to last season.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster TMW Radio, Tacchinardi gave the view that the Nerazzurri have become stale particularly in attack heading into the run-in of the season.
During the earlier months of the campaign, Inter were free-scoring in front of goals, with starting strike pair Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez both chipping in while the other attackers as well as midfielders also gave opposition defenses something to worry about.
In recent weeks, the strikers have dropped off significantly, and part of this could be that other coaches have studied how to negate their effectiveness.
As Tacchinardi points out, at this stage of last campaign the Nerazzurri could always seem to count on new and different players emerging as match-deciders, and they could require this once again this time around.
“The forwards are very predictable now,” he said, “there is a lack of contribution from teammates, especially the midfielders.”
“It’s too predictable now,” he emphasized, “this also has to do with their physical condition. Last year they had players who were adding something different at this point in the season.”
