Legendary former Inter goalkeeper Walter Zenga feels that the Nerazzurri’s win over Atalanta yesterday afternoon was a massive one in the context of their season.

Speaking on his YouTube channel after the match, the former keeper also praised the contributions of current Nerazzurri keeper Andre Onana, particularly for the impetus that he gave the team’s attack.

Inter got the better of an up-and-down match away in Bergamo, winning by the odd goal in five.

The Nerazzurri went behind after Atalanta forward Ademola Lookman opened the scoring before roaring back to make the scoreline 3-1.

A second half goal by La Dea defender Jose Luis Palomino made it a nervy finish for the Nerazzurri, but they saw out the match to take three huge points from a rival from the top end of the Serie A table at a tough away ground into the World Cup break.

Zenga noted that it was “A vital win for many reasons.”

“First because it ends the sequence of defeats to direct rivals in the league.”

“Second because they came back from a poor start that was not good enough to be worthy of a club like Inter.”

“We must also remember that important players such as Brozovic and Lukaku were missing.”

“In the last five matches Inter have won four and lost one, scoring sixteen goals in the process, seven of which have come away from home,” Zenga added.

“The match hadn’t started in the best way because Atalanta were very aggressive, man-marking.”

“The most dangerous situations came about from some excellent long distribution by Onana,” he noted.
