Italian Journalist Sebastiano Vernazza: “Inter Resembled Simone Inzaghi’s Best Lazio Teams In Win Over Roma”

Italian journalist Sebastiano Vernazza believes that Inter’s performance to beat Roma 3-1 in Serie A on Saturday evening resembled the way that Lazio played at their best under coach Simone Inzaghi.

Writing in his column in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, Vernazza gave his thoughts on the stylistic aspect of the Nerazzurri’s win over the Giallorossi.

Inzaghi has changed his own approach in a number of ways to suit the squad that he now has at his disposal since making the move from Lazio to Inter last summer.

Even though the basic bedrock of the team appears to be similar to how the coach had set up the Biancocelesti, heavily based around a back three and wingbacks, the focus on possession has increased.

However, in their direct, vertical and narrow style of attacking against the Giallorossi, Vernazza feels that some of the coach’s ideas from his time in the Italian capital reared their head against his old derby rivals.

“Roma gained almost nothing from their 55.5% control of possession,” he writes, “the goals from Dumfries and Brozovic arrived after direct, precisely-executed vertical attacks.”

“It almost seems that Inzaghi took a sabbatical for a few weeks to cut the umbilical cord with the influence of Conte from previous season, and to turn decisively towards his own convictions,” he adds.

“In some sequences, cut and sewn to measure, with exact movements and passages, this Inter recalled the best Lazio sides of Inzaghi,” he explains of the performance.
