Inter comeback against PSG in the pre-season clash

Inter Milan make a late comeback against PSG after struggling for most of the game. The Ligue 1 giants had control over the game, but Inter did get chances on the break. Inzaghi went with a pragmatic approach for this game, which worked well in the first half in keeping PSG at bay. However, they found the goal in the second half.

Inter started the trio of Barella, Mkhitaryan, and Calhanoglu in the midfield. Thuram also got a start alongside Lautaro, as Inzaghi lined up his best eleven for this game. However, Inter were lacking energy and did not press with intent. PSG started Inter’s former players Skriniar and Hakimi in defense.

The French giants had a great chance in the first half with Soler’s cutback to Asensio around the 15th minute. However, the Spanish forward’s shot hit the post and came back to Stankovic. Inter were struggling to build an attack but had a few chances with Dimarco’s crosses from the left flank.

Simone Inzaghi tweaked his tactics for the second half, as Inter had a higher defensive line. It helped in gaining more control of the ball, and Inter were pushing more numbers forward. Inzaghi made changes around the 55th minute to bring Frattesi, Gosens, Correa, and Cuadrado.

Vitinha found the net after 62 minutes, as he received the ball from Carlos Soler. The Portuguese international found the top corner with a brilliant strike. Inter were struggling to get the numbers back in defense which created space for Vitinha to score the screamer.

Frattesi’s inclusion helped Inter in attack, as the Italian midfielder was offering runs in spaces. The Nerazzurri equalized in the 81st minute, as Frattesi carried the ball forward and placed it to Esposito, who found the far corner. A few minutes later, Frattesi again made the run behind the defense on the counter-attack and squared to Sensi, who scored the winner. Inter kept their lead intact and won against PSG for the first time.
