The statistics reveal how the midfield department of Inter Milan improved on last season in terms of goal contribution.
Even though Nerazzurri captain Lautaro Martinez is leading the Serie A scoring charts, his teammates in the middle of the park have also been finding the back of the net.
As Il Corriere dello Sport (via FcInterNews) notes, the club’s midfielders have already scored ten goals thus far this season.
Hakan Calhanoglu has been the main protagonist on this front. The Turkish playmaker has six goals to his name in Serie A.
The 29-year-old has been the club’s designated penalty kicktaker, which certainly helped his case. Nonetheless, he also displayed his sublime shooting skills with a long-range drive against Napoli last weekend.
Speaking of the Maradona Stadium encounter, Nicolo Barella took the opportunity to open his account for the season.
Meanwhile, Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored a memorable brace in the Derby della Madonnina demolition of AC Milan earlier in the season while providing an assist for Davide Frattesi.
Inter Milan Midfield Stars Have Combined To Score 10 Serie A Goals This Season
As the source explains, the Nerazzurri midfielders are on course to beat last season’s tally when they bagged 15 goals in total. They are only five goals away even though we’re still in the 14th round of the season.
Moreover, the midfield department had combined to score 16 goals during the 2021/22 season. That was Simone Inzaghi’s first campaign at the helm.
Therefore, the Roman newspaper suggests that these stats prove that the middle of the park has significantly improved in terms of individual skills and collective play.
