There are still four games to go but goals scored by Inter midfielders this season are already at 16, five more than the overall figure of a year ago. Nainggolan is giving the club five goals with the last one against Juventus on last Saturday night. Five also come from Gagliardini.

But it is more than that. Inter are first in Serie A in possession percentage (59.6%) and also ball recoveries (5.6 per match). It is a sign that there is the desire to control the match and to make immediate pressing when the ball is lost to regain it back. Inter are second in terms of number of completed passes (479 per match), only behind Napoli.

2017-2018 – 11 (38 games) 

  • Brozovic 4
