Inter Milan are looking to show their true path as one of the Scudetto contender after grabbing another important victory under the new coach, Leonardo, who hasn’t even been in the club for more than two months.
After beating Napoli 3-1 in midweek, the Nerazzurri successfully see off Catania’s challenge at stadio Massimino despite trailing a goal down first before Esteban Cambiasso rescued the team with his two goals.
The result doesn’t actually give an exact image of the game as Catania actually deserved more out of the game especially after creating plenty good goal scoring chances early in the second half that were mostly denied by Luca Castelazzi’s fine display. However, the home team did take an early lead through Gomez after capitalizing on the mess that happened because of Inter players’ inability to clear the ball outside of their box.
However, Inter luck’s seemed to change lately as minutes after that goal, Leonardo’s team did get an equalizer after Cambiasso blast his shot pass Andujar capitalizing on a nice pass from Dejan Stankovic. Just before Catania have time to work on their attacking game once again, Cambiasso once again delivered the winning goal after heading into Maicon’s cross from the right side. This victory was important for the away team as they pulled more points from the teams in front of them not to mention having two games in spare compared the other teams.
Inter’s success in closing their points with Ac Milan could make things more interesting for the league as despite drawing against Udinese in this week’s game, the Rossoneri are still pretty much secure at the top of the league even should the Nerazzurri did manage to get all three points from their two matches in hand. However, it’s still very early to think that Leonardo’s team could keep their fine run in the next few games as at the moment their performances aren’t actually improving much from the Benitez’s regime although they do get the results needed.
