Against the background of Napoli gradually ending the suspense of winning Serie A this season, the competition for the second place in the standings is particularly fierce. Originally, Inter Milan occupied a certain advantage, but their instability was not completely reassuring. You know, in the last three rounds, they once lost to Bologna. In the 26th round of Serie A, the "Nerazzurri" was once again upset.
In this battle, Inzaghi led a team to challenge spezia. In terms of starting price, Inter Milan reached 325 million euros, which is nearly seven times that of its opponent. lautaro and Lu Kaku, the highly anticipated combination, once again fit together. However, the "Nerazzurri", which has an absolute advantage in paper data, is inseparable. In the 5th minute, after lautaro got the ball at the top of the arc, he made a decisive long-range attack. Unfortunately, Drogovsky’s ten-finger pass was more secure, and he tried to keep the door open.
In the 12th minute, lautaro’s penalty kick still failed, which is regrettable. From the 19th minute to the 28th minute, Lu Kaku and mkhitaryan also joined the attack, but unfortunately they either kicked the ball. On the other hand, spezia got an attack opportunity in the 33rd minute. At that time, Agudelo led the ball into the penalty area in the frontcourt and was defended by acerbi to the bottom line. He barely finished picking the pass, but unfortunately hit the crossbar, and the attack ended. Under the constant waste of opportunities by the two teams, the first half ended soon, and the two sides were still 0-0!
In the second half, in the 46th minute, Inter Milan launched an attack with a long pass in the backcourt, and then moved the ball in the restricted area one after another. Finally, lautaro headed the ball to the net. Unfortunately, Lu Kaku was offside in this attack, so the score has not been rewritten. In the 55th minute, Enzola entangled with two defenders including acerbi on the right side of the penalty area, took the ball with his back and successfully made the ball for Daniel Maldini, who pushed the ball from the front of the penalty area and spezia led 1-0 at home.
The second goal of this game happened in the 83rd minute, when Inter Milan got another penalty, this time Lu Kaku took the penalty and hit it. The good times didn’t last long. After 4 minutes, Inter Milan also sent out a penalty. Enzola scored from the 12-yard line and spezia declared the game over 2-1. According to statistics, spezia was completely suppressed. Their possession rate was only 31%, and the number of shots was only 4, which was 24 times less than that of their opponents. However, spezia was still able to win, so we had to sigh their good luck!
After this battle, spezia was 6 points higher than the relegation zone and ranked 17th, which seemed to be a little reassuring. Inter Milan’s points are still fixed at 50 points, ranking second, which also makes Mourinho see new hope. You know, after the first 25 rounds, Rome scored 47 points and ranked fourth. It seems that it is not stable to stay in the top four, but Inter Milan are invincible this time. If Mourinho leads the team to win, then their points can be at the same level as Inter Milan, so it will be more secure to fight for the fourth round.
In the future, if Inzaghi’s team is still not stable, then it is not impossible for them to fall out of the top four. You should know that Lazio and AC Milan are eyeing the position of the "Nerazzurri", and a big reshuffle seems to be brewing!
