Great response from Inter in that of Turin, where Juventus cannot party alone. The 0-3 against the cousins grenade is clear, the result of the goals of the Lautaro Martinez and Lukaku spikes interspersed with de Vrij's goal. Unlike forecasts, the weather "helps" Conte's team, which becomes more cynical than usual without paying too much attention to technicalities. Back to shine Brozovic, in an emergency forced to reinvent himself even in the "old" role. Barella's injury was out of tune. Here is the tactical analysis of Torino-Inter
TRAINING – Here is the starting eleven chosen by Conte to face Torino: Handanovic; Godin, de Vrij, Skriniar; D'Ambrosio, Vecino, Brozovic, Barella, Biraghi; Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez.
MODULE – Conte's "pre-tactic" is linked exclusively to D'Ambrosio's immediate return, moreover from the fifth right of the midfield instead of behind. In fact, the best possible Inter goes into the field, lined up with a rather buttoned 3-5-2 . Two full-backs lined up on the midfield line, theoretically it is more a 5-3-2 than a game system mirrored by Mazzarri.
FIRST HALF – Adverse meteorological conditions that turn into an impractical turf. We try to run the ball on the ground until the ground allows it, but the accelerations are unpredictable. And the rebounds make everything more complicated. At 12 ′ Inter went ahead thanks to an intuition of Vecino who headed Lautaro Martinez on the counterattack, lightning in passing Sirigu at the exit without ending offside. The strategy of Conte's team is to attack the depth using all the holes left by Torino in the middle of the field. More than a mirror game, the 3-5-2 Inter never finds the opposition of that grenade. At 32 ′ Inter doubles with de Vrij's winning tap-in on Biraghi's cross from the right , good at seeing and finding the Dutchman free at the far post. Inter's vertical plots are really interesting, to understand with what contribution the field is full of water and demerits of an unrecognizable Turin in defensive phase. The first change of Inter comes at 48 ': out Barella (injured), inside Borja Valero. The Spaniard does not even have time to place himself in midfield when the referee whistles the end of the first portion. The first half ends 0-2 : only Inter in the field, a deserved double advantage.
SECOND HALF – The second half reopens with the same line-up that closed the first part of the race, but the surprise is the role of Borja Valero. Conte asks the Spaniard to act as a pivot in front of the defense, consequently it is Brozovic who widens in the role of left-wing midfielder. And at 55 ′ just the free and advanced Brozovic sends in Lukaku goal, which with a right diagonal pierces Sirigu for the nerazzurro tris. Inter runs the double advantage without overdoing it, favored by a confused Turin. At 69 'second change for Inter: out Lautaro Martinez, in Candreva. The Italian placed himself in an atypical position as a right-handed midfielder in a sort of 3-4-2-1 which in the non-possession phase became a 5-4-1 squashed. Conte's eleven is the owner of the field, she plays with simplicity and arrives at the door with ease of running. At the 83rd third and last change: outside D'Ambrosio, inside Dimarco. Official debut for the number 21, which is positioned off to the right despite being left-handed (as shown in the image below, ed). It goes on by inertia, only poker is missing. The second half ends 0-3 : too much Inter for a Turin reduced to the minimum terms, there is no game.
PROTAGONIST – The positive news of such a clear external victory is the impossibility of an insufficient player, but some have done better than others without finishing on the scoresheet: Brozovic. The Croatian midfielder is "limited" to playing low in the first half, when the result of 0-2 would allow him to catch his breath. But in the second half he managed to break free from that position, rising "alla Barella". Brakeless. Result? The assistance of the tris bears his signature. Close to 2020 there is still talk of a discontinuous player (otherwise it would be from the Golden Ball …), but it is second to none for completeness, flexibility and generosity. In this Inter Brozovic is the only one to balance the features on the midline, because it brings up the quality voice alone. Brilliant.
COMMENT – Nobody expected an Inter in an emergency so dominant on the very heavy field of Turin. Certainly Mazzarri was not expecting it, he was completely taken by his fellow-Inter. The preparation of the game is, as always, very careful with the details by Conte , who chooses two outsiders knowing that he cannot set the maneuver on the wide field. In fact D'Ambrosio and Biraghi are asked to maintain the position and attack the depth, which makes the whole team en masse. And that puts the Turin offside. Inter finds space without even having to create them and is orderly, despite having to deal with an opponent who does not give up the game. The defense holds up, it is a news also not having suffered goals. Finally. Also holds Borja Valero, who in the second half works extremely hard to show Conte that he is still presentable (with mixed fortunes). And the attacking pair scores with absurd rhythms. All nice for an intentionally ugly Inter. Conte renounces Lazaro or risks Esposito, Candreva only enters the final. Even the little technique available is set aside, it is essential to harness Turin by exploiting the impracticable field in its favor. The goal is achieved, so Conte's strategy is correct. Because Inter never risks, not even getting hurt. Only exception? Yes, Barella. The injury of the blue midfielder (2019 finished?) Will stand in the next hours, then Conte will know what countermeasures to take. Juventus remains only at +1, but this is not the topic of the day at home. Now head to Prague, because you have to beat Slavia to keep the Champions League dream alive. In emergency.
