This week’s Champions League game saw a couple of the well-rested players return to Inter’s starting line-up, eventually getting the win in the end. See how they rate.
Handanovic 6: It seemed to be one of his sloppiest games with Inter this season. Ultimately did get Inter the win with a great save in the second half.
D’Ambrosio 7: He has now played 4 games in 10 days fatigue didn’t seem a factor and he linked up well with Skriniar.
De Vrij 6.5: Held his position, looked a little confused at times, but still managed to help with the end result, quiet throughout the game.
Skriniar 7: He played well on the big stage. He had a great clearance when Handanovic struggled to get the ball out of the box.
Asamoah 8: Very close runner up to the Man of the Match. He was pivotal tonight, and very durable, running up the field, and ensuring that the result favoured Inter. His long range shot, was the start of the events that led to Nainggolan’s first half goal.
Brozvic 6.5: Very quiet tonight, Asamoah took up a lot of the duties usually completed by Brozovic. He held the ball, but did have a couple of minor slip ups.
Vecino 7.5: He was again involved in the play that led to Icardi’s winning goal in the second half. Every game he plays he develops more and more as a great player.
Politano 8: Having played a great role in the first game, Politano was fantastic tonight. He linked up well with Asamoah and Nainggolan, proving his pedigree as a player.
Nainggolan 8.5: Has settled into Inter’s squad extremely well. He was fantastic with the ball all night, and held his position in the midfield in what was.
Persic 6: He was extremely quiet in this morning’s game, unlike his usual self and did not get involved at all.
Icardi 8.5: He was involved in Nainggolan’s goal, and scored the winning goal. He did have a couple of chances, but did get Inter the win tonight. 2 goals in two Champions league games.
