Dzeko stars in Inter Milan’s victory over Plzen

Dzeko stars in Inter Milan’s comfortable win away to Plzen. It was a must-win game for the Nerazzurri, and they managed to get over the line with ease. A red card to Bucha in the 61st minute did help the Italian giants to control the game. Inzaghi decided to make some changes and made some big calls by keeping Lautaro Martinez on the bench. The Argentine needed some rest, so Dzeko and Correa started at the front.

Inter had a decent start to the game as they were enjoying possession in Plzen’s half. The Nerazzurri were patient in the build-up, and Acerbi, who made his debut, had a great game. The former Lazio defender played the most number of passes in the match. His long balls were also threatening, and Inter were targeting Dumfries, who is good in the air.

Inter got their first goal after a clever build-up around the edge of the box. Correa received the pass from Barella and turned quickly to find Dzeko making a run from left. The Bosnian striker had time and space to place his shot and gave Inter the lead. Vlkanova had a chance at the end of the first half, but his shot went off target.

Inter had a strong start to the second half as well with a free kick on the left side of the box. Bastoni played a brilliant ball in the box, and Dzeko managed to connect it, but Stanek kept the ball out. Dumfries had a chance a few minutes later as Bastoni’s cross found him. But the Dutch defender could not keep his header on target, and it went above the crossbar.

The game got easier for Inter as Bucha received a red card for his reckless challenge on Barella. He caught the Italian midfielder with his studs and was sent off after a VAR review. Inter got another goal to seal the game after a rapid counter-attack. Dzeko receives the ball after a clever flick from Barella and drives through the center. So, the Bosnian found Dumfries making a run from the right, and the Dutch wing-back managed to finish it after taking a touch.

Inter will face Barcelona next in UCL on October 4. The tie with the La Liga giants can decide their fate in the Champions League.
