FATIGUE – "In addition to Handanovic, for example, even Skriniar has not lost a minute and De Vrij is in the top 5 of the most employed. And the numbers also tell of how much the absence of D’Ambrosio has weighed: 7 goals conceded in the 8 races in which he was on the field, 10 in the 7 in which there was none. However, the analysis cannot do without tactics. And the networks collected by Inter have been very similar. In the sense that they arrive with the defense lined up, almost always at the edge of the area, and with an opponent who finds himself free to kick in the goal. The most recent examples are the 2 feats of Hakimi from Borussia, but it also happened with Brescia, with Juventus, with Sampdoria, etc. In short, what emerges is that Inter is struggling to defend itself low ".
ADAPTATION – "While De Vrij was already used to the 3 defense: he was the central pivot of that of Lazio and it is not by chance that he is the Nerazzurri defender who is guaranteeing the highest return. Skriniar and, above all, Godin find themselves instead in a system that they knew little, with the Slovak who is also adapting himself to play on the left, despite being of right foot. But it is the Uruguayan who is in greatest difficulty because, compared to Atletico, he finds himself guarding a wider area of the field, having to face, maybe an opponent with much more leg. Not by chance, with D’Ambrosio among the plants the mechanisms worked better. And, not surprisingly, Conte awaits his return with anxiety ", adds the newspaper.
