The central responds once again present, the outside is now a guarantee on the right: thanks to them the Nerazzurri stopped Napoli
Who knows if Luciano Spalletti regretted having defended Andrea Ranocchia on the front line from the grumbling of some fans in July 2017, during his first summer retreat as an Inter coach. A famous episode, figuratively the first step in the rebirth of the former captain. Ranocchia responds once again present and helps to stop the run of the Certaldo coach in the Inter 3-2 against Napoli. The Nerazzurri are strongly part of the Scudetto speech also thanks to Matteo Darmian, another not very strong name but for the umpteenth time a factor: it will not be Achraf Hakimi, but Inzaghi on the right has found his man.
Darmian breaks right
Inter discovers they have a tricolor heart. The Italy that works is among the secrets of the very heavy success against Napoli. Ranocchia and Darmian, the antidives who do not take the cover but are pillars of the locker room and wingmen who have seen so many. It is precisely on the right that the Nerazzurri have often made a breakthrough, especially in the first half: this was also the case in the derby, just think of the penalty foul committed by Ballo-Touré on Darmian’s cut. The 1-1 penalty against Napoli was born from his support for Barella. Emblematic, then, the race in the final on the ball swept by Arturo Vidal: Ospina forced to close in midfield, after the sprint of the winger. The others weaken and Inzaghi changes them, he doesn’t.
Ranocchia had to deal first with Victor Osimhen, then with Andrea Petagna. In the end, simultaneously with Petagna, Dries Mertens and the other Napoli attackers, who arrived in the area from various parts. Inter held their breath, but the centralone’s test is once again positive: it was only the second as a starter this season, after the 2-0 home match against Udinese. But the rust did not make itself felt, even in setting the pressure of Napoli: 30 positive passes throughout the game and only two errors, with also several precise long passes for the teammates. Stefan De Vrij’s injury was hit hard. Inter relaunches in the league thanks also to the tricolor heart. Darmian and Ranocchia, Italy that works.
