Stefano Sensi has returned to playing against Borussia Dortmund, one month after his injury to Juventus. Despite having played only 22 'against the gialloneri, he did however show (again) why his return to a permanent position is essential.
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT – Stefano Sensi has made many Nerazzurri fans fall in love with him since the first balls touched at his absolute debut, Inter-Lecce 4-0 on 26 August 2019 (here the tactical note). A love that grew from minute to minute, and then exploded at 24 minutes. His shot from the outside is retaken, but Sensi immediately retrieves the ball, jumps two and shoots a deadly low shot at the far post. On a statistical level, the first goal with the Inter shirt , on a technical level much more. Because already in those first 25 minutes Sensi had highlighted his excellent technical skills, made of quick touches and vertical thinking. Not by chance, already after the first summer training, Antonio Conte came to say: «Stefano is unique, in two seconds he already knows what I want. He sees football first of all » .
A DIFFERENT VISION – Sensi has integrated very well into the Nerazzurri , giving the impression of wanting to shake off the time spent in the province of Italian football. One aspect of his football hits immediately, and it's verticality . Sensi plays head-on, and thinks about playing vertically, the imperative is to get as close to the net as possible. Verticality that stands in stark contrast to the last two seasons of Inter: Luciano Spalletti's game was more effective in exploiting the side bands. Sensi, on the other hand, does not disdain at all to walk the central lane, skipping the opponent's pressure with filters aimed at the ends. And this is also seen by the movements, as shown by the goal scored against Udinese (here the article).
DIFFERENT RHYTHM – Sensi plays soccer head-on , the opponent's goal as the guiding star to trace the direction to follow. This is a fundamental element for Inter's game, first of all because it offers a complement to Marcelo Brozovic during construction. As often seen this year, the Croatian is the first target of the pressing opponent: if he is limited, the Nerazzurri offensive phase slows down and rusts. Here, then, that Sensi, who has a decidedly more refined vertical vision than Brozovic, immediately established himself as an additional director of the team and, in his absence, Stefan de Vrij emerged (here the focus). But what really makes the former Sassuolo a fundamental player for Conte is its pace of play . Sensi seems to have more time than the other 21 on the field, sees soccer with many seconds ahead of the others. That's why his return is essential to bring back an important dose of unpredictability to the Inter di Conte.
