ShareDecember 06, 2019The advance of the fifteenth day between Inter and Roma ends without goals at San Siro. Nerazzurri a little more dangerous than rivals, but not enough to move the result. Equally fair. Conte's team now has 2 points ahead of Juventus, who will play at the Olimpico against Lazio. But above all, it is expected from the fundamental commitment in the Champions League against Barcelona: only victory guarantees access to the knockout stages.
Heavy absences in midfield for Conte: Barella, Sensi and Gagliardini. Vecino, Brozovic and Borja Valero, Candreva and Biraghi play on the lanes. Fonseca also has injured players: Pau Lopez, Kluivert, Cristante, Pastore and Fazio are missing, Dzeko starts from the bench. In goal goes Mirante, Zaniolo makes the offensive reference in front of Perotti, Pellegrini and Mkhitaryan. The occasional for Lukaku, launched by a mistake of Veretout and hypnotized by Mirante, does not set fire to the powders. Fonseca also loses Santon (enters Spinazzola) already in the quarter of an hour. At first stingy with real emotions, Rome tries to hurt herself. First Perotti loses a bloody all-around ball of the area, Smalling foils with timing on Vecino; then Mirante delivers the ball to Lukaku in the area, the defense barely closes, Brozovic finds the space but sends an inviting position through the sky. In closing, problems also for Candreva, replaced by Lazaro.
The second half opens with a great new opportunity for the Nerazzurri: Borja Valero serves the rightness of the incursion of Vecino, Mirante surpasses himself in diving. Also in this case a game that remains isolated for several minutes. Fonseca decides to spend the gas that Dzeko has in the tank for the last 22 '(Perotti comes out, Zaniolo moves back to his position). The chance, however, happens immediately to Inter, with Lautaro who slips into the area is closed on Spinazzola and Mirante's shot. Conte decides Asamoah for Borja Valero, with the Ghanaian who is inside the midfield. No concrete effect, however, the 0-0 slips away without other emotions.
