Inter wingback Ivan Perisic was the Nerazzurri’s most convincing performer in their 2-1 loss to Bologna in Serie A yesterday.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who also name Milan Skriniar and Hakan Calhanoglu as having had better displays than their teammates on a very damaging evening for the team.
Perisic got Inter off to a flying start with a brilliantly-taken solo goal early on in the match which would have left the team expecting a very different outcome.
The Croat had been a very positive influence in possession throughout the opening half-hour with his energy and incisive passing, as were Calhanoglu and Skriniar.
The trio did everything they could to pile the pressure on the Rossoblu and get another goal or two, but the forwards were not able to finish off the chances that emerged.
The blow of an equalizer from Marko Arnautovic on the half-hour mark and then a late Bologna winner stemming from an Andrei Radu error condemned the Nerazzurri to a fourth defeat of the Serie A season, but the efforts of Perisic, Calhanoglu, and Skriniar would have deserved a different result.
