Roma and Inter go ahead with goals on the counterattack – Corriere.it

from Mario Sconcerti

The step back of Milan who suffered the speed of Sassuolo. The scrum has removed the light from the classic game of Pioli. Leao superior, even if distracted

Inter and Roma go on, the surprise the unbalanced match of Milan. It is not mandatory to beat Sassuolo at his home, but AC Milan has not been in almost any of its many class players. Inter have found Barella, one of the real absentees at the Olimpico, Roma discovers Dybala. His goals, like those of Inter, come almost on the counterattack, spectacular and essential. the real difference between Roma and Inter is this diversity in conceiving the pitch as a vertical duty. The others tend to hold the ball, while space can be found anywhere, in front of or behind the opponent. The different man of Inter is becoming Dumfries for the power with which he plays the double role of him. Barella, if he finds continuity, approaches European dimensions. Today he is already an unstoppable player for his movement, ideas and ability to manage them. Rome led well, humble, does not lose balance and finds in Abraham an obscure and essential player at the center of the pendulum. If you add Dybala it is easy to find it in the predictions. It remains a championship divided in two. Undoubtedly a step backwards for Milan, strangely complex and without shots on goal. Inter and Roma are beating the lower teams for now, Milan not yet.

Maybe he found the match he didn’t expect. Sassuolo did not hold the ball, they played with strength and running, accepting the superiority of the opponent. This has led to confusion in the usual logic of Milan. Fighting is not his first gift. Over time it became a closed game, where a cue was needed in tight spaces, very physical, almost never found. Leao confirmed himself to be a superior player even if distracted, all of Milan suffered from Sassuolo’s speed, the scrum took away the light from Pioli’s classic game to the point of making him take risks, especially on Berardi’s penalty. Pioli’s idea of ​​playing without a center forward in the last half hour to take away the advantage of the crowd in the area at Sassuolo is interesting and useless. But the numbers were missing. De Ketelaere got lost in the assault, Adli played promising but always mistaken the second idea, Leao resigned. A confused game, a bit unrealistic, not for Milan. Two other muscle injuries (Berardi and Florenzi). The idea that too much agility and little resistance were sought in the retreats, thinking about the breath of the season broken by the World Championship. The effort at prolonged speed today is a serious risk.
