Ancelotti: “Barça pass? I don’t care, Real are counting 1st”


Thibaut COURTOIS 6 – Basically never called to major interventions.

Daniel CARVAJAL 6.5 – Perisic is an uncomfortable client but once again the Spaniard proves to be a great full-back also in the defensive phase.

Eder MILITAO 6.5 – Mischievous in his shoulder to Barella, he then gets what he wants: a reaction. Which costs Inter the red and the remaining hopefuls of the match. Cunning.

David ALABA 6.5 – Evening of great control behind. Inter have a strong start, but in the last 20 meters then they do little, also because the road is always blocked by his interventions.

Ferland MENDY 6 – Little push, but it contains Dumfries well first and then Dimarco.

Toni KROOS 7 – For some players it takes very little: a touch, a flash, a shot. Toni Kroos is one of them. Without shining, it reminds us what out of class it is and has been. From 78 ‘Federico VALVERDE – sv.

CASEMIRO 6 – Without overdoing it, in the first half he finds himself running around in circles with an attitude of his not very aggressive. In the second half it goes up, but 11 against 10 is easier. From 71 ‘Eduardo CAMAVINGA 6 – Honest entry into the game. Nothing more.

Wound MODRIC 6 – Dictating the rhythms – low – of an evening that Really doesn’t seem to be of much interest right from the start. Because it’s true that there was first place up for grabs, but from how Modric also approached this race, it didn’t seem like it at all.

RODRYGO 6.5 – The goal comes from a flash of his own. Interesting ideas, some good plays and a pole on which Handanovic looks at her. Positive. From 78 ‘Marco ASENSIO 7 – Dimarco leaves him all the space in the world … Of course, then, you also need to know how to kick the ball like that.

Luka JOVIC 6 – Replacing Benzema is one of the most awkward tasks in the world. Fortunately for him, Real Madrid this evening does not give the feeling of having all this desire to play the match of a lifetime. From 78 ‘Mariano DIAZ – sv.

Vinicius JUNIOR 6 – When he can start in the open field he is a player able to put the chills on the opponent’s defenses. Fortunately for the opposing defenses, however, he is not even so precise in the decisive passage. Like tonight. Dall’81’ Eden HAZARD – sv.

All. Carlo ANCELOTTI 6,5 – Play a sly, smart match. He gets there, behind, at a low pace, and then sets off again with his arrows. Quiet, like his team on the pitch: he doesn’t enchant, but he knows what to do. From the second round, something more will certainly be needed. But for this evening, stop and move on.

Inter report cards

Samir HANDANOVIC 5.5 – Not guilty of the goals conceded, he does not make a great impression on the next Real Madrid post, where he shows off the usual ‘push look’. It suits him.

Danilo D’AMBROSIO 6 – When Real accelerates – a few times, to tell the truth – they have some trouble. But all in all his, like all that of the 3-man line of defense, is a sufficient match.

Milan SCRIPT 6 – Guides with precision a defense that for a time has almost nothing to do; and that in the second half he does not make mistakes.

Alessandro BASTONI 6 – Precise match. Contains Jovic well, does not make noteworthy mistakes.

Denzel DUMFRIES 5,5 – A discreet offensive push, however, often ended in an imprecise, not very effective way. From 46 ‘Federico DIMARCO 5.5 – Some interesting ideas, but nothing extraordinary. On Asensio’s goal he shows off the unprecedented ‘look’ marking: 4 meters from the opposing player.

Nicolò BARELLA 5 – Beyond the red, on which he is as naive as the referee is fiscal, it was not his best evening. A big wasted opportunity at the beginning of the second half, combined with a somewhat imprecise first half at the moment of the last touch.

Marcelo BROZOVIC 6.5 – For an hour he dictates the law in the middle of the field, with a very low Real in the first half and with the Croatian to do essentially what he likes. However, Inzaghi realizes after 60 minutes that overturning it probably becomes complicated; and so he takes out the best, to give him a little breath too. From 60 ‘Arturo VIDAL 6 – Enter with the game that from there to an amen will get very bad for Inter. Runs and collides in the middle, without overdoing it.

Hakan CALHANOGLU 5 – Brenabeu are not the fertile ground of Serie A and although Real Madrid are certainly not playing their best game ever, the level rises a little and Calhanoglu disappears or almost disappears. From 60 ‘Matias VECINO 6 – The speech made for Vidal is valid: Inzaghi throws him in but a moment later Inter remains in 10. Difficult to affect, he is limited to the defensive task.

Ivan PERISIC 6.5 – Generous race even today, with a level up and down along the whole range for a very good first half. The best with Brozovic.

Lautaro MARTINEZ 5.5 – A few flashes, but never ending towards Courtois or becoming really dangerous. From 66 ‘Roberto GAGLIARDINI 6 – To protect the defense for the final half hour. Honest match.

Edin DZEKO 5.5 – Fight, try to be seen and work as usual for the team. But in the end he is well contained by Real’s two central players and never manages to find the inspiration that Inter would need in the last meters. Dal 60’ Alexis SANCHEZ 5,5 – He hardly ever sees her.

Herds Simone INZAGHI 6.5 – In the first half it is his Inter who make the game, playing a courageous match and an absolute protagonist on the pitch. Of course, scoring on the only shot so far is not easy. And the hint happens, after an hour, start saving the best ones. Given the commitments that will arrive – and so on, Barella’s expulsion – there seemed to be a wise choice.
