A report in the Italian media sheds light on a concerning stat for Inter Milan while wondering if Alexis Sanchez can help the club improve in this regard when he takes the pitch against Salernitana.
As Il Corriere dello Sport (via FcInterNews) explains, the Nerazzurri’s strikers haven’t been operating at full speed based on the stats.
After the first six rounds of the Serie A season, the frontmen have scored seven goals out of the club’s 15.
Club captain Lautaro Martinez has the bulk of it. He currently leads the Capocannoniere charts with five league goals. Marcus Thuram delivered a couple of strikes himself.
But despite the Argentinian’s best efforts, the numbers reveal that the Nerazzurri strikers have scored less than 50% of the club’s league goals thus far.
Therefore, the source wonders if Alexis Sanchez can boost this percentage. Several sources expect the Chilean legend to start in Salerno on Saturday night.
Inter Milan Will Be Hoping To Witness The Best Version Of Alexis Sanchez When They Take On Salernitana
Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi should give Lautaro some much-needed rest. This would allow Sanchez to make his first start since rejoining the club last month.
The 34-year-old is yet to score a goal for the Nerazzurri in his three second-half cameos this season.
However, the former Arsenal star is coming off a brilliant campaign at Marseille. He made 44 appearances for the Ligue 1 side and was often decisive.
Therefore, Inzaghi will be hoping to see this version of the veteran striker. We’re talking about the mercurial talent who can cause havoc in the final third.
