Inter Milan, champion long asphyxiated by a beautiful Fiorentina, reversed in the second period a compromised situation to win (3-1), this Tuesday in Florence during the 5th day of Serie A and temporarily take the lead.
As nerazzurro coach Simone Inzaghi was about to make changes in an attempt to revive a logically led Inter, Matteo Darmian (52nd) and Edin Dzeko (55th) sprang up to transform the meaning of the match. Suddenly, the substitutes Denzel Dumfries and Alex Sanchez had to wait a little more on the bench before making their entry in the place of the two interior scorers on the lawn of Florence.
Until these stunning three minutes, Fiorentina had done everything, tormenting the champion with constant pressure and offensive breakthroughs at a hundred miles an hour. It was compensated by a goal from Riccardo Sottil (23rd), at the conclusion of a cross from Nico Gonzalez.
A Tuscan goal disputed by the Milanese for a possible fault by Gonzalez on Skriniar but completely logical in view of the offensive activity of the Viola. Because this advantage could have been wider without a few miracles on his line from Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic, ahead of Nico Gonzalez (3rd), Dusan Vlahovic (10th) then Cristiano Biraghi (13th). Alfred Duncan sent him a missile just above (21st).
While biding his time, Inter Milan suffered above all and was content in the first half with a shot on target, on a free kick from Hakan Calhanoglu (30th). But the next two in the frame will be worth two goals and a lighter night for Inter, who then managed their victory with skill, against Florentines reduced to ten after s the exclusion for protest of Gonzalez (78th). And Ivan Perisic seated the success three minutes from the end (87th).
This fourth success in five days allows the Nerazzurri (13 points) to temporarily regain the lead in front of Naples (12 pts, one game less). It confirms the solidity of a group that left with Inzaghi on the impetus of the past season, despite the departures of Antonio Conte and Romelu Lukaku, the two great men of the scudetto that fell apart. may.
Atalanta Bergamo for its part conquered Sassuolo (2-1) its first victory of the season at home after a draw and a defeat (against Fiorentina).
The “Dea” especially found the game and the legs which it missed a little this season: Robin Gosens (3rd) then Davide Zappacosta (37th) compensated for a good first half. Even if Domenico Berardi, with a cannon from the left, preserved hope for Sassuolo.
But the Bergamasques were able to preserve this advantage to come back up to Milan (3rd, 10 pts) in the standings. The Neroverdi, for their part, remain stuck in the second part of the standings (13th), with a third consecutive defeat.
