With the boost of the victory in the Super Cup, the nerazzurri can now look with more optimism to the gap from Napoli. But Inzaghi must find who is lost
Recover men, recover points. After a victory like this and a cup raised in front of the cousins in a dominated match, everything is easier. The Super Cup can push Inter, it’s an adrenaline rush to keep on to build an important second part of the season. The Nerazzurri plunge back into the championship in full swing, the gap of 10 points from Napoli – when heart and legs are going strong again – may seem even more bridgeable. The comeback operation starts from here, but it must go through the recovery of some players who have been missing up to now.
The two “operations” are closely connected to each other: to mend the rift and continue to hope for the Scudetto, everyone is needed. This season Inter has found valuable resources in working players, in non-superstar profiles: Darmian, Acerbi, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco, to name a few. Not curling shots, if anything intelligent and tactically impeccable players, as well as talented. Not to mention Dzeko and Calhanoglu, who arrived for free to fill the void left by Lukaku and Eriksen: from emergency solutions to big deals. This is the basis from which Inzaghi starts again, but for the second intense part of the season we also need the contribution of those who have not hitherto hitherto. Also because Inter are still in the running for the Coppa Italia and the Champions League: among the teams fighting for the title, they are the only one involved in three competitions.
WHO IS MISSING
Rotations will be key. And so we need to keep an eye on the infirmary: it will have to be empty more often, while this year there have been excellent stops that have represented an obstacle. Brozovic and Lukaku, in this sense, must be the real January signings. With them at the top, the horizons change. Then there are those who have given good answers in the last period, such as Gosens and Asllani: Inter have strongly bet on us, also from an economic point of view. If it is true that Dimarco seems untouchable and Inzaghi’s midfield is scary (also considering that Brozovic is missing), it is also true that there is a need for fresh energy. Robin and Kristjan are giving it, they will have to continue on this path. Instead, a step is needed by Dumfries and Correa: the Dutchman has come back badly from the World Cup, the Argentine is increasingly a mysterious object. An untapped potential that is currently a waste. Without forgetting two like De Vrij and Gagliardini, whose future seems far from Milan but who can be precious elements. After the Super Cup, the Inter group celebrated as one. As such, only in this way, can he really dream of winning the Scudetto.
