The Olimpico match already closed in the first half by the goals of Calhanoglu, Dzeko and Dumfries. Injury for Correa who came out in tears

Great show of strength for Inter, which in the 16th matchday of Serie A overwhelms Roma 3-0 and keeps pace with the AC Milan championship. At the Olimpico there is no history and the match has already closed in the first half. Calhanoglu directly from corner prank Rui Patricio (15 ‘), then serves the great ex Dzeko the ball of 2-0 (24 ‘). Dumfries he first saves the 1-2 over Vina and at 39 ‘drops the trio with a splendid header. Negative note the ko of Correa, who came out in tears.

THE MATCH
A monologue, an absolute domination, a fearful test of strength. Inter probably plays the best game of the season, responds to Milan’s victory and keeps pace with the Scudetto. A truly extraordinary choral performance in the first half (given that the second was little more than a training session) that of Inzaghi’s boys, who was able to afford the luxury of keeping 90 ‘Lautaro Martinez, one of the most used this season, on the bench. . A disarming security in the game, the clear feeling that sooner or later (at least) a goal always arrives and a defensive solidity that goes beyond the individual, given that today De Vrij and the natural replacement of the Dutch Ranocchia were still missing. Calhanoglu has once again confirmed that he has now entered perfectly into the mechanisms of the team: the Turkish unblocked directly from a corner kick and from there the domination of the Italian champions began, who left no way out for a subdued, decimated Rome. from injuries and no alternatives on the bench.

Mourinho, between suspensions (Abraham and Karsdorp), Covid (Afena-Gyan) and injuries (Spinazzola, Pellegrini and El Shaarawy) has very few alternatives and decides to take sides with the 3-5-2, with Ibanez and Vina on the wings and the Zaniolo-Shomurodov tandem in attack. Inzaghi also has several defections, concentrated in defense: Skriniar is the central player as with Spezia, with D’Ambrosio and Bastoni on his flanks. Barella back in the middle of the field, Lautaro rifiata forward and with the great ex Dzeko there is the ex from Lazio Correa.

Roma started very strong and after only 22 seconds Shomurodov hit a headache after a great idea from Zaniolo. For the Capitoline it is just a flash in the pan and at the first Nerazzurri conclusion they go under: Calhanoglu directly from a corner kick, Zaniolo-Cristante indecision and ball that passes under the legs of Rui Patricio (15 ‘). The goal immediately weakens the hosts, completely at the mercy of the Italian champions who find the doubling at 24 ‘at the end of a splendid choral action of 21 passes: the penultimate is from Calhanoglu who serves Dzeko, left that makes Rui dry Patricio. Still the Turkish, unleashed, tries again from the corner, but this time the Capitoline defense is careful. A minute later Rui Patricio distances himself and blocks Dzeko’s diagonal in two stages. Roma shows signs of presence around the half hour, with Mkhitaryan (right deflected for a corner), Zaniolo (central header) and above all Vina, whose left with a sure shot is saved by Dumfries. The Dutchman did even better a couple of minutes later when in a diving header he drops the trio on Bastoni’s cross (39 ‘). At 45 ‘at the Olimpico there is no match at all.

The recovery is little more than a training session, with Inzaghi letting the various Barella, Calhanoglu and Bastoni catch their breath but losing Correa to a muscle problem in his left thigh: the Argentine, who came out in tears, is the only off-key night of this evening. which gave Inter the 11th consecutive result. Returning to the occasions, little stuff, with the Nerazzurri who preferred to manage against a Roma unable to offend: Vidal (right hit badly) and Sensi (high shot from a few steps) for the guests, Zaniolo on the outside of the net for the masters of home. Then it’s a Nerazzurri party, but also applause to the Roma fans who have always supported Mourinho’s players.

REPORT CARDS
Zaniolo 4.5
– He deludes himself with a play of his own after 22 seconds, but it’s just a flash in the pan. He shares the blame on the first goal with Cristante and Rui Patricio, in the second half he gets a yellow card and will be forced to miss the match with Spezia. His left in the final only gives the illusion of a goal.
Shomurodov 5 – Abraham’s disqualification gives him a starting shirt, but the Uzbek completely fails the test like the rest of the team. Impalpable.
Vina 6 – In the midst of so much Giallorossi mediocrity, he is the only one who tears the sufficiency. He risks reopening the match in the 37th minute, but Dumfries sacrifices himself and denies him a goal that seemed to have been made.

Calhanoglu 7,5 – Another monstrous test by the Turkish playmaker, who has the merit of unlocking the match directly from a corner and then serves Dzeko the 2-0 ball. There are 4 goals in the last six games. Basic.
Dumfries 7 – Darmian’s injury has given him back his titular ranks. After having removed a bit of rust with La Spezia, at the Olimpico super evening: first he saves the 1-2 by sacrificing himself on Vina, then with a splendid head dive he makes the trio.
Brozovic 7 – Also tonight at the Olimpico he confirmed that he is truly irreplaceable for this team. He dictates the rhythms of the game like a perfect conductor, never wastes a ball and is always in the right place at the right time.
