Vlahovic Once Again Unable to Break San Siro Spell

Dusan Vlahovic was in terrific form coming into the clash with Inter, but he failed to make his presence felt at San Siro. He had just one chance on a counter in the first half, but he had a poor first touch, and his shot was easily blocked. The Milan stadium is where he has played the most without scoring, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The trend started during his time with Fiorentina and wasn’t halted on Sunday either. He hasn’t found the target in eight trips. He had hit the net in four straight matches and seven times in the past six rounds beforehand. The level of the opposing defense didn’t help. The Nerazzurri have allowed 10 goals in 22 matches and kept 14 clean sheets.

Vlahovic looked particularly nervous right from the get-go. After a pair of fouls, he was booked in the 18th minute for protesting. He lashed out at Timothy Weah for a misplaced cross late in the game.

The Serb turned the ball over 13 times, more than any teammate. He concluded with just two shots, the other being a difficult bicycle kick that went way above the crossbar.

Our Take on Vlahovic

It’s tough to blame the attackers too much when the strategy was so cautious. That fast break was a big blemish, but Inter would have turned up the volume more had they conceded. Still, even when he’s filling boots, his leadership skills leave a lot to be desired.
