Inter Milan's defence all at sea

Inter Milan

Perisic, Candreva lead the way for Inter

How much can we read into Inter's come from behind win against Juventus over the weekend?
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was delighted with an emphatic win over Cagliari after the weekend defeat against Inter.
Inter Milan manager Frank de Boer has urged fans not to get too overexcited after their 2-1 victory over Juventus on Sunday.

Inter left two points on the pitch with a tired second-half performance against Bologna. Things had looked to be on the up a little after the half hour mark, when Frank de Boer's men had responded to Bologna's opener with a sumptuous Ivan Perisic volley and a period of consistent pressure. A late resurgence wasn't enough to turn the game, despite both Andrea Ranocchia and Mauro Icardi fluffing glorious chances to win it for Inter.


The youngsters were very good: Senna Miangue and Assane...

Inter Milan look to punctuate solid week in Serie A with Bologna win

Mauro Icardi continues to be instrumental for Inter with his fourth headed goal of the season coming against Empoli.

All in all, it's been a rather enjoyable five days for Nerazzurri Nation.

Turning the clock back to Saturday, Inter were set to face a Juventus side that was surely too big to fail, mere days after an embarrassing Europa League loss to Hapoel Beer'Sheba. The defence looked like a sieve, the midfield unbalanced, and manager Frank de Boer was all but a presumptuous country bumpkin flown in from the Netherlands, at least if the Italian press was to be believed.

Fast forward six points and a victorious...

Antonio Candreva, Joao Mario starting to settle in well at Inter Milan

Antonio Candreva
Summer signing Antonio Candreva is beginning to find form in the Inter Milan setup.

Inter Milan didn't let the post-Juventus euphoria affect them by calmly handling Empoli, hitting two goals past the Tuscans early before calmly keeping them at arm's length for the rest of the game.

Mauro Icardi's excellent finishing prompted little reaction from Empoli, who threatened with Manuel Pucciarelli and Inter loanee Federico Dimarco.


Beyond overtaking Carlos Bacca as Serie A's top goalscorer (with six strikes), Icardi worked beautifully with new signings Antonio Candreva and...

Were Juventus overrated as Inter Milan claim Derby d'Italia victory?

How much can we read into Inter's come from behind win against Juventus over the weekend?

Maybe we overrated Juventus? This was a serious, albeit provocative, debate on TV in Italy after Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Inter in the Derby d'Italia. In a season that many expect to be Juventus' year in the Champions League, Gianluca Vialli wondered: is this particular vintage really any better than the one that reached the final in Berlin two years ago?

Such a question ignores the depth Juventus have added in the meantime. Take Daniele Rugani, for instance. Arguably Italy's best young centre-back,...

Mauro Icardi lifts Inter to comeback win against Juventus in Derby d'Italia

Mauro Icardi scored the first goal en route to a 2-1 comeback victory for Inter Milan against Juventus.

Normally, a clinical Juventus opener 24 minutes from time is a death sentence, it's as simple as that. As Stephan Lichsteiner -- ironically a late transfer target for the Nerazzurri -- wheeled away in triumph, it looked like Frank de Boer's men had toiled for nothing.

But nothing could have been further from the truth. Within two minutes of Juventus' opener, Mauro Icardi had pressed the reset button with a powerful header from a corner.

Suddenly, a deeply shaken San Siro came alive again, the fans...
