European League Recap: Dortmund Fails To Win, Inter Milan Returns To Victory Rate

By news-admin

Inter Milan –  Inter Milan returned to the pace of victory while visiting Ennio Tardini, Parma headquarters, in the 23rd week of Serie A  Sunday (10/2) early dawn. Previously, Inter had never won four consecutive matches in all competitions.

Though they have yet to play convincingly and efficiently, Nerazzurri were able to win 1-0 through a goal made by Lautaro Martinez in the 79th minute. Inter should have been able to get more goals in that match.

How could they not, they mastered the ball possession of 66 compared to 34 percent of the host and released 18 kicks – six of them on target. Fixing the effectiveness of the play will be Luciano Spalletti’s homework. Most importantly, Inter continued to gain three points.

“I am thrilled because we returned to the pace of victory and this is crucial. We are happy, but we realize that there are still some things that must be addressed, so we must continue to work hard,” said Martinez, reported from Football-Italy.

“Without a doubt, we have to fix our mentality, because we missed something in the last few games. These three points are important to keep our distance from the chasing teams and maintain a place in the top four.”

An additional three points did not  change Inter’s position in the standings. They remain third in Serie A with 43 points, nine points adrift of Napoli who is in second and five points from fourth place, AS Roma.

Meanwhile the competition is getting tougher in the Bundesliga. Bayern Munchen takes advantage of Borussia Dortmund’s failute to win by cutting the distance in week 21.

Bayern won 3-1 against Schalke at the Allianz Arena, Sunday (10/2) early morning, through all of the three goals created: Jeffrey Bruma own goal, Robert Lewandowski, and Serge Gnabry, which was reduced by Ahmed Kutucu’s goal.

Whereas Dortmund missed the opportunity to play at Signal Iduna Park and a 3-0 advantage while entertaining Hoffenheim. Die Borussen was ahead 3-0 until the 66th minutes through Jadon Sancho, Mario Gotze and Raphael Guerreiro.

However, Hoffenheim’s comeback moment began in the 75th minute. Former Inter striker, Ishak Belfodil scored two goals in 75 and 87th minutes, and another goal was scored by Pavel Kaderabek in the 83rd minute. In the end Lucien Favre’s team earned only one point.

As a result, Dortmund is now just five points adrift of Bayern who are in second place in the standings with a total of 21 Bundesliga matches that have taken place. The fight for the Bundesliga title has been running more exciting this season.
