Inter 1-1 Milan: Milan should have been out of sight by half-time

Inter upped their performance after a terrible first-half display. Andrea Stramaccioni gave a rare start to Ricky Alvarez on the left, after his impressive performance against Cluj in midweek. Diego Milito is out for the season, so Antonio Cassano and Rodrigo Palacio started upfront together. Max Allegri made changes from the victory over Barcelona – Mario...

Roma 1-1 Inter: Bradley & Guarin sum up Serie A’s obsession drivers rather than creators

Roma 1-1 Inter: Bradley & Guarin sum up Serie A’s obsession drivers rather than creators

A match that started strongly before fading in the second half. Zdenek Zeman didn’t feel Miralem Pjanic was 100% fit, so went for Alessandro Florenzi in the centre of midfield. Inter coach Andrea Stramaccioni was without both Antonio Cassano and Diego Milito, so selected youngster Marko Livaja upfront. Juan Jesus, Yuto Nagatomo and Walter Gargano also...

Inter 2-1 Napoli: Cassano & Insigne the key men but Guarin provides the most important contributions

Inter leapfrogged Napoli and into second place in Serie A. Andrea Stramaccioni was without Walter Samuel, so moved Esteban Cambiasso into the centre of defence. Walter Mazzarri brought Christian Maggio back into the starting line-up, but otherwise named an unchanged side. This was a good, open game of football – Inter stormed into a 2-0 lead and...

Juventus 1-3 Inter: unbeaten run ends at 49

Juventus lost a Serie A game for the first time under Antonio Conte, and for the first time in their new stadium. Conte selected a partnership of Mirko Vucinic as the primary striker and Sebastian Giovinco just behind – the rest of the side was as expected. Andrea Stramaccioni slightly surprisingly selected his tridente rather than...

Milan 0-1 Inter: Inter strike early, then hold on with ten men despite constant Milan pressure

Milan 0-1 Inter: Inter strike early, then hold on with ten men despite constant Milan pressure

Inter preserved a one-goal lead for almost the entire match after Walter Samuel’s crucial early goal. Max Allegri played Daniele Bonera at right-back rather than Ignazio Abate, and used Urby Emanuelson on the right flank. Andrea Stramaccioni named the same XI that defeated Fiorentina last weekend, in a 3-4-1-2 starting shape. There was barely a tactical battle...
