Inter Player Ratings vs Juventus: Lautaro Missed Chances Prove Costly

On Sunday evening, Inter travelled to Turin in the hopes of extending their recent positive run with a win over their arch rivals Juventus. Nonetheless, Simone Inzaghi’s men wasted several  clear-cut chances in front of goal – especially in the first half – and paid dearly when the Bianconeri proved to be significantly more clinical, scoring two goals courtesy of Adrien Rabiot and Nicolò Fagioli. So here are our player ratings for Inter who left the Allianz Stadium disappointing following their Derby d’Italia defeat at the hands of Juventus.

Inter (3-5-2)

André Onana – 6.5

Despite conceding twice, the Cameroonian was among the best performers for his team. He couldn’t have done anything to prevent either goal, but he denied Kostic by flicking the ball towards the post with his fingertips, while also beating Chiesa in an one-on-one situation (albeit it was offside anyway).

Milan Skriniar – 5.5

A tough evening for the Slovakian who earned a yellow card for a late challenge on Sandro which prompted Inzaghi to replace him later on.

Stefan de Vrij – 6

A mixed bag from the former Lazio man who nullified Milik’s threat, but also had some shaky moments. Was beaten by Danilo on the disallowed goal, but VAR spared him the blushes.

Francesco Acerbi – 6

A decent outing from the Italian international who won several duels against Juventus players, but looked slightly tired by the end of the match.

Denzel Dumfries – 5

A night to forget for the Inter wingback who was second-best to Kostic in their personal battle. Should have buried his shot in goal when he received the ball unmarked but instead sent it over the bar.

Nicolò Barella – 5.5

The former Cagliari man has been on a hot run recently, but this time around, he lost his personal duel with the physically-superior Adrien Rabiot. While he loves to attack the spaces, he always found an opponent in his way.

Hakan Calhanoglu – 6

The former Milan man had a decent if not spectacular in the Regista role, but Inzaghi decided to sacrifice him in favor of Correa.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – 5.5

The Armenian was willing to do the dirty work in the middle of the park, but didn’t provide the flair that Inter were craving for.

Federico Dimarco – 6

The left wingback started on a positive note, bullying Cuadrado with his pace and tenacity, but ran out of steam as the match progressed.

Lautaro Martinez – 5.5

The number 10 uncharacteristically wasted two major scoring opportunities – one in each half – which was more than Inter could afford.

Edin Dzeko – 5.5

The Bosnian himself was the culprit on another ill-fated chance as he headed wide off the target. Endured a tough battle against Bremer and Danilo.

Inter Substitutes

Robin Gosens – 5.5

The German replaced Dimarco on the left flank but didn’t exactly prove to be an upgrade on his teammate.

Joaquin Correa – 6.5

To his credit, the Argentine made an immediate impact after coming of the bench. He caused a booking for Danilo and put Lautaro through on goal with a precise pass. But similarly to his Inter teammates, the second Juventus goal took the wind out his sails.

Raoul Bellanova – N/A

Matteo Darmian – N/A

Marcelo Brozovic – N/A
