AS Roma stun Inter at the San Siro with a 2-1 win. The Nerazzurri lose another league game, and it will be hard for them to stay in the title race now. Inzaghi had to make some changes in the lineup as Brozovic was out due to an injury. Also, Lukaku is still recovering from his thigh injury, so he gave a start to Dzeko and Lautaro. While Mourinho was out for Roma due to suspension, he made a key change with Abraham on the bench.
Inter had a good start to the match as they were keeping possession, and trying to beat Roma’s mid-block. Also, they were applying pressure from the front when they lost the ball. The Nerazzurri got the goal in the 11th minute with the pressure as Lautaro found Dzeko outside the box. The former Roma striker fired his shot first-time, but after VAR intervention the goal was ruled out for off-side.
Inter finally got their first goal after a good build-up with Skriniar driving forward and playing it to Barella. The Italian midfielder plays a perfect through ball to Dimarco, who makes a clever run off Celik’s shoulder to the back post. The Italian defender placed his shot on the corner away from Patricio.
AS Roma stun Inter with a 2-1 victory away from home
The Nerazzurri suddenly switched off after the goal and were looking complacent after taking the lead. This lapse in concentration gave the Giallorossi a chance to get back in the game. They had a chance to score in the 38th minute, but Handanovic managed to make a double save. However, they got another chance as Dybala made a run by exploiting space behind Dimarco. Spinazzola played a perfect ball, and La Joya executed his volley to perfection.
Inter were slow in building up from the back and were missing the presence of Brozovic, who gave energy in the midfield. The Nerazzurri had a chance with Lautaro, but he was pulled off by Mancini, who only got a yellow for his offense. Calhanoglu’s free-kick hit the crossbar, and Patricio was far from saving it.
AS Roma scored the winner in the 75th minute with Smalling as the English defender made a run on the back post for a free-kick. Pellegrini played a wonderful ball over Inter’s line, and Handanovic had no chance. Inter tried to make a comeback with many substitutions, but AS Roma held their lead.
