Inzaghi’s formation overwhelms the Rossoneri: goals from Dimarco, Dzeko and Lautaro
Inter wins the Super cup. In Riyadh, the Nerazzurri overwhelmed Milan 3-0 in the derby which earned them their first trophy of the season. Inzaghi’s trained formation unlocks the result in the 10th minute with Dimarco, who strikes Tatarusanu with his left foot, taking advantage of Barella’s assist and crowning a splendid team action. Inter doubled their lead in the 21st minute with Dzeko, who flies to the left, enters the area and places the ball at the far post with his right foot. Milan tries to react between the two halves, but the Rossoneri don’t shine for precision. Inter controls and in the final drops the trio that knocks out the Italian champions. In the 77th minute launch for Lautaro, who controls and with a right winger signs the 3-0.
THE MATCH – The nerazzurri immediately start with their foot pressed on the accelerator and in the 10th minute they unlock the match: Darmian recovers the ball, Dzeko sees a perfect corridor for Barella, a low cross for Dimarco and a left plate from the Milanese fullback which is worth the 1-0. The Rossoneri reaction was short-lived, entrusted to the most awaited man: Diaz and Giroud called for Leao to be inserted, who looked for a shot but Onana was not surprised. In the 21st minute the doubling comes thanks to Dzeko: nice throw by Calhanoglu for the Bosnian, dry dribbling on Tonali and a jab that leaves Tatarusanu without the possibility of a reply.
Having found the doubling, Inter would also deserve the trio: Dzeko and Dimarco still put the former Fiorentina goalkeeper in difficulty, good at repelling the opposing offensives. Milan goes, in the best of cases, in flurries: Leao’s attempt from distance is very high, shoots on the side of Tomori who in the final will make you worry about a headbutt with Dzeko. Last chance for Lautaro, served slightly long by Mkhitaryan after yet another recovery from Barella.
No substitutions among the twenty-two on the pitch when the game resumed, with Milan called for a reaction, also invoked by Maldini and Massara in the locker room. He doesn’t go all the way: a couple of attempts from distance by Leao and Theo Hernandez are the best that the Italian champion team can produce. The Nerazzurri are building another great opportunity for Lautaro blocked by Kjaer.
Skriniar also tries, while the swirl of changes starts: Inzaghi first removes Dimarco – stopped by cramps – for Gosens, then also Dzeko and Barella for Correa and Gagliardini. Pioli is looking for a breakthrough with Kalulu-De Ketelaere-Origi inside for Kjar, Diaz and Messias. A turning point that didn’t come and with just over ten to go, a great goal from Lautaro closed the match. The 3-0 was born from a throw by Skriniar: the Argentine jumps Tomori with a body feint and then beats Tatarusanu with a nice soft lob with the right winger. Curtain.
