Roberto Gagliardini was out for revenge. After having a great performance in the derby, he was left out of the team when they faced Lazio at home. And yesterday, he took full advantage of the starting position that he had and played a fantastic game and not only because of the brace that he scored against Genoa.
The Gazzetta dello Sport points out that Gagliardini was back to his best again at the Ferraris with precise passing, elegant running and doing so confidently. But overall, this has not been an easy season for Roberto: excluded from the UEFA list and so he had to watch Champions League and Europa League matches in the stands. Suffering watching the games from the outside, especially when he would have been very useful for matches like the return leg against Eintracht. That being said, he has always found himself ready to play in Serie A, giving his best every time he was called upon. Gagliardini has often spent the season on the bench but in the 15 league appearances that he has this season, Inter have 12 victories. Without him, the club only has five. Coincidence? Perhaps but this is still a very valid fact.
