The entry of Lautaro Martinez against Udinese gave Inter the right push. This is highlighted by the online edition of the Gazzetta dello Sport which pointed out that the period on the pitch against the Bianconeri was the longest that Lautaro played with Icardi in tandem since the matchday 1 of the season on August 19th.

Il Toro was also praised by Lucano Spalletti himself in the post-game interview and now he could really be an extra weapon for his club. Anyway, Lautaro was first in the trequartista position in a 4-2-3-1 but the formation eventually switched to 4-4-2 with the Argentinian duo up top. Furthermore, when Nainggolan returned to the pitch for the first time in weeks, Spalletti turned the formation to 3-4-2-1 which could be the formation of the future.

Il Toro and il Ninta played behind Icardi, Asamoah was the third central defender, Vrsaljko and Perisic acted as “all-around” wingers (Sime had more tendency to provide coverage). This is certainly an interesting experiment, an extra option to make the most out of the talented Lautaro Martinez.
