Inter Milan have earned comparisons to Man City with their very one-sided victory over Salernitana in Serie A yesterday.

Today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, highlight the dominant performance’s similarities to the reigning Premier League champions at their best.

Inter did not just take three points yesterday against Salernitana.

The Nerazzurri did so in just about the most emphatic fashion imaginable.

Simone Inzaghi’s team had around three quarters of possession of the ball.

They turned this possession into 26 shots, ten of which were on target.

And at the other end of the pitch, Salernitana managed a meagre one shot, which was off shot and never had a chance of troubling Inter keeper Yann Sommer.

The final scoreline of 4-0 was not surprising in the least on the run of play.

Inter Earn Man City Comparisons After Salernitana Rout

Inter’s demonstration of strength was as convincing as any they’ve shown this season.

And it was enough for Tuttosport to compare the Nerazzurri to the team who narrowly beat them in last season’s Champions League final.

There are different ways for teams to win by big scorelines.

At times last decade, teams like Real Madrid and Barcelona could run up eye-watering scorelines simply by virtue of the world-class attacking talent throughout their teams.

But in recent season, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have gone about things in a more disciplined manner.

The Cityzens have dominated the Premier League by playing a highly controlling style of play.

And in the view of Tuttosport, that is what Inter did yesterday evening.

That may not mean that there was a lack of entertaining football from the Nerazzurri. Inzaghi’s team strung together plenty of passes for quick and incisive forward moves.

But the emphasis was more on control and dominance. The fact that Salernitana were kept so quiet in attack was just as important as all the chances Inter laid on at the other end.

And in the view of Tuttosport, this warrants comparisons to Man City.
