Francesco Acerbi and Yann Bisseck have drawn criticism for their defensive error’s in Inter Milan’s Serie A draw with Cagliari.

Today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, single out the defensive duo as the Nerazzurri’s two worst performers in the 2-2 draw.

Inter conceded twice in yesterday’s match. In both cases, they had been ahead, not looking to be under too much threat, when Cagliari found the equalizer.

This was partly down to a few defensive breakdown by the Inter team as a whole.

But in the view of the Corriere, the players in Inter’s back three were particularly culpable. Or at least a couple of them were.

Bisseck & Acerbi Under Fire For Errors In Inter Serie A Draw Vs Cagliari

Cagliari’s first goal came via Roma-owned striker Eldor Shomurodov.

It was certainly an excellent strike by the 28-year-old Uzbek international. However, the Corriere argue, Shomurodov should not even have had the opportunity to have a go.

The setup for Shomurodov’s goal was a simple long ball from the wing by Tomasso Augello.

This was taken down by Cagliari forward Zito Luvumbo, who used his strength and balance well to hold off Inter’s Acerbi and chest the ball into a dangerous area.

The Angolan probably shouldn’t have been able to control the ball as freely as he did – Acerbi’s marking looked weak in the situation.

And then Shomurodov was able to run onto the ball and take his shot unchallenged.

This was the result of a positional error by defender Bisseck. The 23-year-old failed to track the run of Shomurodov so he could mark the Cagliari striker.

Then. Bisseck once again found himself in no-man’s-land for Cagliari’s second goal.

The German was not in position to make a block or tackle as Gianluca Lapadula brought the ball down for Nicolas Viola to run unto and score.

And Acerbi was even more culpable on that goal, the Corriere argues.

The veteran defender could well argue that Lapadula used his arm to control the ball.

But the fact remains that Acerbi had simply been outmuscled by Lapadula, who used his anticipation and strength well. And then the Inter defender was spun easily by the former AC Milan striker.
