0-0 at Marassi in the last match of the 22nd round

Onslaught. Lasted almost the entire match, but which in the end did not produce the desired result. Inter came out of Marassi with bitterness in their mouths for a victory that would have allowed them not only to stretch into fourth place, the last available for the Champions League, but also to keep lit the small flame of an impossible comeback to the crushing Napoli. None of that. It ended 0-0 in Genoa, with the Nerazzurri now lagging 15 points behind the Spalletti gang.

The match thrives on the ball possession and territorial dominance of the meneghini, who, however, cannot yet count on the explosiveness of Lukaku, who appeared far from the dragging force he was under Conte’s management. The blucerchiato goalkeeper Audero, except for a great save at the cross of the posts on Acerbi in the 91st minute, does not have to perform miracles to stem the Nerazzurri forwards, with Lautaro himself appearing, for one night, with wet dust.

The match thus slipped to a 0-0 final, with Samp moving a still very deficit ranking: fourth-last Spezia is still 8 points behind, but meanwhile Hellas Verona, victorious just two hours earlier against Salernitana, gained another two points over the Ligurian outfit.
