Former Inter defender Daniele Adani feels that the main difference between the Nerazzurri’s performances against Juventus and Bologna was that they were far more ruthless in front of goal in the latter.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Rai Radio, via FCInterNews, the former defender also praised wingback Federico Dimarco and compared his second goal against the Rossoblu to the type of goal Manchester United winger Antony would score.

Inter didn’t manage to get on the scoresheet against Juventus, and it wasn’t necessarily due to a lack of chances to do so.

The Nerazzurri had a few presentable opportunities, but all of them went begging, whereas the Bianconeri made no mistake when their clear-cut chances were presented to them.

Against Bologna, it was a very different story.

Whilst the six-goal haul that Inter managed against the Emilians did not exactly flatter their performance, it was not as though the team were missing any chances in addition to the ones that found the back of the net.

Instead, as Adani highlights, Inter really punished Bologna at every opportunity they got, running up the scoreline seemingly whenever they reached the final third.

This was exactly the kind of ruthlessness that was needed with the chances that Juventus did allow them, and something that the Nerazzurri will have to start showing against more difficult opposition.

“Inter found their clinical edge that they were missing against Juventus,” Adani argued, “it wasn’t so much a matter of technical quality or tactical choices.”

“It’s not like they shot on goal more than they did against Juventus, but they did so with much more ruthlessness.”

Adani also praised Dimarco for his brace in the match, particularly singling out the 25-year-old’s second.

“It was the kind of goal that Antony would score for Manchester United.”
