“Mauro Icardi, who scored two goals in the first leg against Lazio, was just sitting in the stands next to Wanda Nara. The strikers on the pitch were a winger in Keita and a midfielder in Vecino. This is a depressing image of Inter, of how the club is handling the most crucial period for Champions League qualification, unable to resolve its internal storms.”
That was found in a Gazzetta dello Sport story written by Luigi Garlando who points out the big chance wasted by the Nerazzurri to cement its spot in the Champions League next season.
“Beating Lazio would have pushed Milan back to -5, Roma to -9 and would have locked up the third spot (virtually). Instead, with this loss, Lazio could soon tie with Milan (51) if they can win against Udinese and thus -2 away from Inter.”
