In a convincing display at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium, Inter Milan secured a 4-0 victory over Udinese in the ongoing Italian League on Sunday (10/12/2023) in the early hours WIB. The four goals for Nerazzurri came through penalties from Hakan Calhanoglu, Marcus Thuram, and Lautaro Martinez.
This triumph catapults Inter back to the top of the standings with 38 points, holding a one-point lead over Juventus in second place.
The Serpent, as Inter is affectionately known, has showcased an exceptional performance this season, leading the Serie A charts with 37 goals (the highest in Serie A) and conceding a mere seven goals (the fewest in Serie A). They’ve also notched up an impressive 10 clean sheets.
Inter’s style, relying on rapid transitions under the guidance of Simone Inzaghi, is the key behind these remarkable statistics. The Serpent shows no hesitation in deploying high pressing tactics, with their attackers actively participating in pressing the opponent in their half.
This approach is vividly reflected in Inter’s fourth goal against Udinese. Lautaro Martinez successfully intercepted the ball from Udinese’s player, initiating a swift counter-attack that culminated in a goal.
Lautaro revealed that Inzaghi’s style of play has seamlessly integrated into Inter’s gameplay. This success is a testament to the three-year journey undertaken by La Beneamata under Inzaghi’s tutelage.
“We press very high, allowing us to regain possession quickly, create goal-scoring opportunities, and maintain the opponent’s defense. The first half was played with high intensity, and we are very pleased,” said Lautaro, as quoted by Football Italia.
“We have worked very well with this coach for three years; we continue to evolve and demonstrate that we deserve to be at this level,” he emphasized.
