The enthusiasm for the derby has not yet waned. Inter achieved a victory against Milan which is certainly worth much more than the three points in the standings and some teasing towards the Rossoneri cousins. But now the time has come to put everything aside and start rethinking the field and the match against Real Sociedad which opens the way to the Champions League.
Inter, Lautaro’s post goes viral
Before serious things it’s still time for a little fun. Winning a derby 5-1 it’s not something that happens every day and therefore a few extra hours of celebration certainly isn’t a problem. The Nerazzurri club published the photo on social media Lautaro Martinez waving towards the camera complete with an open hand almost indicating a 5. A choice that is most likely not accidental.
Lautaro Martinez: the new Nerazzurri leader
Lautaro Martinez’s role at Inter seems to be very different compared to last season. The farewell of important players like Skriniar, Handanovic (who could now make his return to Milan), Brozovic and Lukaku himself, seems to have entrusted Lautaro Martinez with the role of leader of this new Inter and the Argentine has fit perfectly into this new role. Even against Milan, his match was not only of a high level from a technical point of view, but above all a mental one: he understood and interpreted all the moments of the match in the best possible way, also taking part in the team’s “dirty work”.
Inter, Inzaghi keeps everyone focused ahead of the Champions League
Party time is over, it definitely is for Simone Inzaghi who will already be bringing everyone back with their feet on the ground in view of the commitment of Champions League against Real Sociedad scheduled for Wednesday. After reaching the final last season, the Nerazzurri have the desire if not the imperative to try again and in Europe you have to be careful against all rivals, even those that may seem like an affordable target.
On the value of the Nerazzurri team Pep Guardiola’s words are enough. The Manchester City coach who beat the Nerazzurri in the final in Istanbul praised Inter: “I have the feeling that Inter are one of the candidates to return to the Champions League final – said the coach on the eve of the match against Red Star – They were very competitive in Istanbul”.
