Inter Milan and Roma seeking return to form in Serie A grudge match

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 12:28:00 PST

Inter Milan vs. Roma on Sunday is being billed as an anti-crisis match. A chance for Inter to turn things around. The moment Roma have been waiting for to snap out of their malaise. A win at San Siro for either side would have the effect of a jab in the arm, the best medicine for a bout of winter flu. Both teams unexpectedly slowed in December, fading in parallel. What made their respective declines all the stranger was that it came just when they seemed for real. Their title credentials checked...

How Coutinho overcame his setbacks to become Barcelona's record buy

Sat, 6 Jan 2018 04:35:00 PST

What on earth must Inter Milan be thinking at the moment? They identified the special talent of Philippe Coutinho before the Brazilian attacking midfielder had even turned professional. They bought him in 2008, when he was 16, and had to wait two years to take him across the Atlantic. But after all of this scouting work and the investment of time and money, they effectively gave up on him. After three disappointing Serie A seasons -- 28 league appearances and three goals; 47 games and five...

How will Serie A's top teams approach the January transfer window?

Wed, 3 Jan 2018 12:48:00 PST

Paulo Dybala was the star of the weekend in Serie A as Juventus and leaders Napoli created a little space at the top of the table. With the January transfer window now open, James Horncastle looks at how Italy's top clubs will approach the market amid a tight battle for the title and the top four. Napoli: Spending could make them champions Napoli look like being the busiest of the top teams in Italy and for obvious reasons. Add the right depth in key positions and there's no reason why the "winter champions" can't make it stick and win the Scudetto for the first time since 1990. An agreement has already been reached with...

Samir Handanovic flawless in Inter's 0-0 draw with Juventus

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 10:31:00 PST

Inter managed to come away from the J Stadium with a precious point after a hard-fought 0-0 draw. Juventus had most of the chances, Mario Mandzukic forcing a fine save off Samir Handanovic and seeing his follow-up be cleared off the line by Joao Miranda. The first half ended with the Croatian seeing a header hit the bar. A more subdued second period saw possession football rule the roost, Inter's only chance being sent just wide by Marcelo Brozovic.

Juve have conquered big challenges before but now must adjust to Inter

Fri, 8 Dec 2017 06:14:00 PST

It must be said, for a club that many have said is experiencing a crisis and is not at the level it was in previous years, Juventus have navigated through their tricky ties well. Not only did the Italian champions defeat Napoli to keep themselves in the hunt for the seventh consecutive Scudetto, they defeated Olympiakos in Greece to progress in the Champions League. All that's left is the Derby d'Italia to round off the week, and if Juve succeed and defeat their most "hated" rival, they will have...

Inter have chance to show they are truly back in Derby d'Italia

Fri, 8 Dec 2017 02:56:00 PST

It was a tad odd to see Inter fans mock Milan last week. Four-nil up against Chievo, the entire San Siro began to jump, yelling: "If you don't jump, you're a Rossonero." Why didn't they choose this weekend's opponent Juventus? Perhaps it was because the hated Diavolo had just sunk further into ridicule, or because certain habits die hard. Still, it felt weird, because since the match-fixing scandal Calciopoli, most Inter faithful have it in more for Juventus than they do for their crosstown foes....

Mauro Icardi, Ivan Perisic and Inter Milan stars sing Jingle Bells

Thu, 7 Dec 2017 04:20:00 PST

Il Natale si festeggia in famiglia e quella interista si riunisce il 16 dicembre allo stadio Meazza, per finire la canzone manca solo la tua voce. Unisciti al coro nerazzurro e vieni a cantare #InterBells! <¤ #InterXmas pic.twitter.com/GSPNAdkOzT&mdash; Inter (@Inter) December 7, 2017 With the big day just around the corner, Inter Milan have taken it upon themselves to spread a little festive cheer to their fans. The Serie A side have produced their very own Christmas song with the whole Nerazzurri squad getting involved, reluctantly or otherwise. As such, the likes of Mauro Icardi, Ivan Perisic and even club legend Javier Zanetti have lent their dulcet tones to "Inter Bells" -- a subtle reworking of the season classic "Jingle Bells". We think you'll agree it's both joyful and...

Inter Milan riding high on confidence as they travel to free-scoring Juventus

Thu, 7 Dec 2017 03:37:00 PST

A week after putting on a tactical masterclass in Naples, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has gone back to the drawing board. Ahead of Saturday's Derby d'Italia, another mouthwatering top of the table clash in Serie A, he made a simple but significant observation: "Inter are a different team. It'll be a different game." Allegri was clever to pack the middle and leave the flanks to Napoli in the 1-0 win last week. By congesting the centre, Napoli's front three got bogged down and couldn't play...

Ivan Perisic's hat trick earns him 10/10 as Inter Milan remain unbeaten

Mon, 4 Dec 2017 11:06:00 PST

Inter hammered Chievo at the San Siro on Sunday, thanks to an Ivan Perisic hat trick. There were long stretches of simply excellent football from the Nerazzurri, whose first two goals (the second was by Mauro Icardi) owed something to Stefano Sorrentino errors. Though Chievo bravely tried to fight back, Inter rolled over them around the hour mark, Milan Skriniar joining the fun with a diving header, because the Slovakian isn't content with being a mere mortal.

Inter fans still jaded by Mauro Icardi's personal life and outspokenness

Sat, 2 Dec 2017 08:14:00 PST

The FC panel debate whether or not Mauro Icardi's goalscoring form with Inter is the best in Europe so far this season. If there's one man who has played a crucial role in Inter's unbeaten run, it's Mauro Icardi. With the Nerazzurri enjoying an unprecedented unbeaten start to the season, the Rosario native has led the line with 15 goals, level with Lazio's Ciro Immobile at the top of the Serie A goal-scoring charts. And yet, a mere 15 months ago, there were many not-so-enlightened souls who wanted this (supposedly arrogant) young pup carted off to Napoli for a sum believed to be in the range of &#8364;50-60 million. Now...

Mauro Icardi, Antonio Candreva get 8/10 as Inter remain unbeaten

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 11:53:00 PST

The FC panel debate whether or not Mauro Icardi's goalscoring form with Inter is the best in Europe so far this season. Inter have now gone 14 games unbeaten (and are top of Serie A, but only provisionally) after defeating Cagliari at the Sant'Elia on Saturday night, courtesy of another Mauro Icardi double. They had a difficult start, with the home side chasing the Nerazzurri down so mercilessly that Inter's first shot on goal didn't come until around the half hour mark. Though, being a Icardi finish, it promptly ended up in the back of net. Cagliari's attempts at ramping up the tempo in the second half only resulted...
