The Nerazzurri suffered in the first half and went under, then recovered in the second half. The Viola closed in numerical inferiority due to the expulsion of Nico Gonzalez
Inter first suffers then spreads. A comeback victory that confirms the quality and the solidity of the champions, first alone for one night. A nice show of strength after a time in which Fiorentina mistress of the field
and Handanovic the savior of the homeland. But the recovery was entirely Nerazzurri: quality, strength, goals. Three. The first two, which are worth overtaking, within one hundred and eighty seconds and are signedand that Darmian and Dzeko, already scored four times, the first away from San Siro. The 3-1, right at the end, with Fiorentina in 10 for the expulsion of Nico Gonzalez, Perisic signs him. The numbers reward the champions, the best attack in the league (18 goals as in 60-61), a kind of machine gun in a sumptuous second half in which Inter commands the game, hits with surgical precision, crushes the purple resistance, giving a good show of strength and maturity.
Fiorentina closed the first half deservedly ahead. Italian risks with Benassi, a midfielder, right back; makes Nastasic debut in the heart of the defense and recovers the bruised Nico Gonzalez in the offensive trident. Handanovic, in the evening of grace, in the first twelve minutes he was decisive three times: out on Gonzalez, then on Vlahovic’s perfidious left foot (the most difficult save) and on Biraghi’s diagonal. The purple goal, after 23 minutes, comes from a play on the left of Gonzalez who gets rid of Skriniar and, having reached the bottom, crosses long for Sottil, able to burn the sleeping Perisic on time.
Inter surprised by the purple departure, who play fast and press very high, catching the ball in the Inter half field. Inzaghi screeches off the bench, but his team seems dazed: he suffers on the flanks and lets himself be put in the center, where Bonaventura and Duncan travel at very high rates. In the last quarter of an hour, when Fiorentina’s fury subsides, Inter begins to assert its technical qualities: Dragowski rejects a free-kick Calhanoglu and Nastasic puts his goalkeeper on Lautaro’s cross from the left, but the Argentine offside.
The end of the first half anticipates the theme of the second half, dominated by Inter. The one-two Nerazzurri sends the viola to the mat. The equal is a diagonal from Darmian, after a postponement by Handanovic, a shot from Perisic, a suggestion from Dzeko and an assist from Barella. The doubling of the Bosnian, who on the corner of Calhanoglu buries the defense by jumping over Biraghi. Fiorentina feel the blow. L‘Inter enjoys the movements of the sumptuous Barella e hits on the counterattack. Lautaro wastes the 3-1 ball. A little bad. Before the end, Perisic scores, after Gonzalez’s expulsion and his nerves jump. The Nerazzurri have already scored 11: a formidable goal cooperative.
