Maldini jr wins his ‘derby’

Inter’s league ups and downs continue with their second defeat in a row away from the San Siro. It was, without a doubt, the most undeserved for the Milanese, who against Spezia they finished 28 times and fell to an opponent who barely shot on goal twiceenough to get three fundamental points to stay out of the relegation places.

Inzaghi’s men tried to do their homework quickly, with an intense start and adding chances. The best, after just 10 minutes and a long dialogue between the referee and VAR, came thanks to an intervention by Caldara on D’Ambrosio, who was finally sanctioned with a yellow card and a penalty. Lautaro’s shot, however, was well neutralized by Dragowski, who later went on to win his personal duel with the Argentine. The Nerazzurri finished the first half with 15 shots and no goals, only conceding to the opponent an initiative from Agudelo, whose shot ended up hitting the crossbar.

The restart started with the same script: interista monologue (with a goal by Lautaro, canceled for offside) and saves by Dragowski. The goalkeeper, at minute 55′, began the unexpected 1-0 play with a long pass: Nzola received the ball, defended it against Acerbi and he handed it over to Daniel Maldini, who beat Handanovic with a precise right hand at first touch. Paolo’s son, on loan from the Rossoneri, had replaced Shomurodov at 46′ and In this course he had only scored one goal, just against his Milan. Signs of destiny.

After the 1-0 draw, the Milanese resumed their siege of the rival area, unsuccessful until 84′, when the newly entered Dumfries forced another maximum penalty, beaten by Ferrer. This time Lukaku was in charge of the launch, who put the tables, but the 1-1 did not hold almost nothing on the scoreboard. Spezia turned to attack and Dumfries himself knocked Kovalenko down in the area, causing the third penalty of the match, which Nzola took and materialized. The interista final rush had no effect: Napoli, beating Atalanta, can again increase their lead to 18 points.
