The "Gazzetta dello Sport" emphasizes the opaque performance of Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez against Roma. The two attackers remained dry.
DRY EVENING – No Lu-La full. For a night in the blue sky inside the Meazza the Lu-La eclipses, obscured by too many errors and by a Roman defense that growls, that puts its hands on it, that does its job very well. It had to happen, sooner or later: even Lukaku and Lautaro are human, even the Inter attack can get stuck and not score. If you really had to stop, better with the Rome that someone will say with Barcelona. Perhaps this is true: Tuesday night, again at San Siro, it will be forbidden to remain dry in the play-off which is worth the Champions League knockout rounds. With Conte it had never happened to not score: in the number 20 game, here is the first zero to the box goals made. And the first night when Romelu and Taurus hit a beautiful high wall: Mirante, Smalling, Mancini. Against them three was very hard for Lu-La.
WASTED OPPORTUNITIES – The Nerazzurri 9 and 10 had never worked so hard up front. Lukaku and Lautaro in these months have always been found, they have grown, they have started to score in bursts, both together. This time, nothing to do. And in hindsight the occasionissima wasted by the Belgian striker after a few minutes can be interpreted as an omen of few fortunes. On days of glory, that Romelu ball – stopped at 11 seasonal goals – would have thrown him in the goal, now Mirante's big hand is stronger than him. The duel of the number 9 Inter with his friend Smalling is to be seen: strong manners, zero compliments, very few chances granted by the Giallorossi defender to former Manchester United team-mate. Romelu gets stuck and when in the end of the first half he has the chance to bite he loses the good moment.
TOO MUCH SPRINGS – And Lautaro? The number 10 is a fish out of water for a good half hour: something unusual for this year's Taurus, hungry and decisive almost always. Thirteen goals between Serie A and Champions, 5 goals in the last three games, the scream of the San Siro audience that touches the decibel peak when it hears its name. A business card that, however, does not frighten Rome and that never makes Mancini step back. The former Atalanta plays with courage in front of the hottest striker of the moment together with Immobile, but the Argentine is too soft to be true and maybe he also takes his. Of course, it is true that when at some point he suddenly exchanges with Borja Valero and pulls, he seems able to wake up. But then, in the second half, he can't pull anything good out of his feet. Because it collects too many advances from the Roma defense and wastes several occasions. Mirante walled it with the help of Spinazzola, then the Toro slick a stone's throw from the goalkeeper of Roma. An evening not, to be canceled quickly. The eclipse of the Lu-La in these parts does not like it. Much better is the Lu-La pieno, maybe already since Tuesday against Barcelona.
