Inter showed their depth of attacking options to overcome newly-promoted Lecce in their opening match of the Serie A season, but failed to keep the tempo up.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who give their analysis of the positives and negatives of the Nerazzurri’s first league outing.

The fact that Inter weren’t able to see the game off after getting off to a dream start through a Romelu Lukaku goal inside two minutes will be worrying for coach Simone Inzaghi.

The culprit appeared to be a lack of rhythm, as the team struggled to link up across the pitch and allowed the home side to impose a more physical game.

Inzaghi will be analyzing the reasons why the Nerazzurri weren’t able to impose their preferred tempo of play on proceedings the way they did at their best last season, as they will hardly be capable of reaching their objectives this season without doing so.

On a more positive note, the Nerazzurri’s attack looked like as much of a battering ram as ever, with the addition of Lukaku to the team and the coach’s ability to turn to players like Edin Dzeko and Denzel Dumfries off the bench giving him a range of solutions to unlock tough matches.
