The "Corriere dello Sport" emphasizes that Inter's defense does not have the typical features desired by Conte. The technician wants to improve.
FINDING SOLIDITY – Conte knows what he must work to improve his Inter. N ow the goal is to lock down defense. Stop this streak already on a difficult pitch like the one in Torino on Saturday, where the Nerazzurri have often struggled. In the first 5 days, Inter had only one network to the passive and had the best defense of all 5 major tournaments in the Old Continent. Handanovic had made a few parades worthy of a goalkeeper of his skill, but the new 3-line, adequately supported in the non-possession phase by the rest of the line-up, had not had great amnesias despite the insidious calendar (among the opponents Cagliari, Milan and Lazio ).
CLEAR PROBLEM – From the sixth day on, however, something has gone wrong. The success at the Ferraris, with a lot of network suffered by Jankto in 10 against 11, made the first alarm bell sound. Then came the two goals collected by Juventus in the only KO in Serie A of the Conte band, the 3 goals by Sassuolo that partially ruined the affirmation of Reggio Emilia (4-3), the 2-2 inside against Parma and the three successes, all 2-1, against Brescia, Bologna and Hellas Verona. Moreover, the last 6 points came in a comeback or after Handanovic and his companions had gone under to both the Dall'Ara and the San Siro against the gialloblù.
CHANGE – Going even further into detail and analyzing the numbers of the opponents' conclusions towards the Nerazzurri goal (data provided by Opta), it is clear that something in the Inter-defense mechanisms has started to creak. Perhaps fatigue has to do with the fact that in the last mini-cycle of 7 games, Count had many injuries and could not rotate men as he should have. The fact remains that in the first 5 rounds of the championship Inter gave an average of 10 shots towards their own goal and that only 2.8 of these have framed the poles defended by Handanovic. In the last 7 days, instead, the average of the conclusions undergone has risen to 13.85 and those in the mirror have increased to 4. In the first 5 races of A, Inter has conceded less than 10 conclusions on 3 occasions (6 against Udinese, 8 against Cagliari and 9 against Milan), while in the "block" of the last 7 challenges it remained below 10 only in the match against Verona. Something to work with, Count has it and you can be sure he will.
