Inter looked to have gotten back into gear with their 2-0 win over Hellas Verona in Serie A yesterday evening.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who argue that both the physicality and the fluid style of play shown by the team were finally reminiscent of their best form this season.
The Nerazzurri got back to winning ways with their 1-0 triumph against Juventus immediately after the international break, but it was anything but a dominant win.
The three points were what were important, but the team had to defend with their backs to the wall and gut out a win and clean sheet while creating next to nothing in attack apart from their penalty.
The win over the Gialloblu yesterday, however, was different, with Inter taking the game to their opponent from the first minute.
The Nerazzurri dominated individual duels, overran their opponents physically, and showed the technical composure to combine all over the pitch and easily overcome the pressing, particularly in the first half.
This kind of complete display had been missing from Inter’s game for some time, with the team having often paid for sluggish starts to matches during their bad run of form in February and March.
Now, the Inter who cruised to an eight-match winning run in Serie A earlier in the season look to have made an appearance for the first time in some weeks.
