  • Title : Darmian and Dzeko turn the Match of Inter in Florence
Date: 22 Sep 2021    


Thanks to a significant increase in performance after the break, Inter won 3-1 at Fiorentina, which after a brilliant initial phase continued to decline.


Despite the successes last weekend, both teams rotated vigorously, Simone Inzaghi four times at the champions, Vincenzo Italiano six times at the Fiorentina. Was it because of the freshness in the line-up? In any case, Florence put the Nerazzurri under enormous pressure in the first 20 minutes or so. The ex-Stuttgart Gonzalez failed early on keeper Handanovic (3rd). Vlahovic (11th), Biraghi (12th) and Duncan with a forceful shot (22nd) had more good opportunities.

In the 23rd minute the time had come: Gonzalez had a lot of space on the left and then fit in at the right moment to Sottil, who only had to insert from close range in the center to take a well-deserved lead. Except for a free kick by Calhanoglu (30th) and an offside goal (38th), Inter did not make a noteworthy appearance on the offensive before the break.

Three minutes are enough for Inter - Gonzalez uncontrollably

This changed significantly after the break. After Vlahovic had the first chance for the home side, Darmian managed to equalize after a pass from Barella a little out of nowhere (52nd). And that's not all, because suddenly Inter's spirits were kissed awake: After a corner from Calhanoglu, Dzeko headed in to make it 2-1 (55th). The game was turned and now the Milanese were suddenly the better team.

After Gonzalez had demanded the yellow card too vehemently after a foul on him and then received it himself, the Argentine could not control himself, continued complaining - and consequently had to leave the field with a traffic light card. Against the decimated Florence, Perisic finally scored the 3-1 final score in the 87th minute after a counterattack.
