Right from the start of the match Inter started the attack, with Brozovic even more mobile than usual, now employed in front of the defense now behind the two strikers, and the exteriors Candreva and Lazaro grinding balls. The Spal, crushed in his own half of the field, responded to Inter's game with a pair of listless counter-attacks. The turning point, at 15 'when the defender Valdifiori clumsily passed a ball on the trocar in Lautaro, which after three touches scored with a diagonal low shot to the Baggio. Another striking defensive mistake by Spal half an hour later, with Igor making a tunnel by himself just a stone's throw from his door, but Lukaku was too external to kick properly. The Inter doubling came in the 41st minute, with Lautaro finishing a clear cross from Candreva at the head of goal.
Back on the field with less charge than in the first half, Conte's team after just 5 'of the second half suffered a 1-2 goal: Valoti, after skipping Skriniar, scored with a precise diagonal. To excuse the Slovak defender in part, the fact that being warned did not want to intervene harshly (in that and on other occasions) in order not to risk skipping the match with Roma on December 6th. At 22 'Lukaku, even more generous than usual, served Lautaro a delicious ball, leaving him alone in front of Berisha and giving him the opportunity to close the game. But the Argentine lost himself in an excess of feints, and then kicked the goalkeeper. A mess that has infuriated Conte on the bench. At the former coach the fans of the curve, who sang "jump with us, Antonio Conte", addressed their choirs, getting the applause of the coach.
The Nerazzurri managing director Beppe Marotta returned to the market before the game. Of Arturo Vidal, always a goal of Conte, he said: "It is no coincidence that Vidal is nicknamed the warrior, both I and Antonio are very close to him. But unfortunately he is a player of Barcelona. Many clubs would like him. With a positive convergence , a thought can be made ". As for Kulusevski, owned by Atalanta but on loan at Parma, the CEO explained that "so far there have been no contacts with Parma, I am a friend of their sporting director, I will contact him at another time". However, the Gialloblu company does not seem willing to sell it in January, considering it central to the technical project.
Speaking finally of the health conditions of Stefano Sensi, outside the match against Verona on 9 November, Marotta stated: "We are trying to understand exactly what his muscular problem consists of. In any case, it is not anything serious , but a situation to be clarified ". Still no indication on possible recovery times. Inter-Spal 2-1 (2-0)
