Italian journalist Mario Sconcerti has suggested that complacency played a part in Inter’s defeat against Bologna on Wednesday night, according to a report in the Italian media.

Speaking during an interview with TMW Radio, via FCInter1908, Mario Sconcerti said that Inter were shocked by Marko Arnautovic’s equaliser partway through the first half after Inter had been by far the better side.

He then suggested that the Nerazzurri seemed to be under the impression that these games are automatically won once you have scored the first goal of the game.

“Yesterday Inter were shocked by Bologna’s equaliser. They were convinced that they were games in which the first goal decided the match. Instead, they were surprised by the equaliser.

“I saw an empty Inter, not very dangerous, they seemed to expect a natural evolution of the match. They did very little to win. I think they emptied themselves on the way to the match against Bologna.”

Mario Sconcerti also played down the importance of Ionut Radu’s mistake, pointing out that Inter were only drawing at the time anyway and they did very little to suggest they were going to score again after the game went to 2-1.

“Radu’s mistake is a replica of Buffon’s one some time ago and risks deciding the season. The goalkeeper’s mistake took away one point, not three, because they were on par anyway. Even later, in the quarter of an hour they had, they didn’t do much.

“It was an incomprehensible match and they will have to try to understand what happened. We need to understand who has made a mistake in recent days.”

Inter are now two points behind AC Milan and they no longer have their game in hand to rely on.
