The Nerazzurri won 2-0 against Pescara with the Argentinian (protagonist) and Guarin.
Surprise Benassi, 18 years old and a seven in rating.
Cassano did not salute as he was subsittued by Rocchi.
After a month of fasting, an anti-crisis victory. Palacio, goal and assist.
The Nerazzurri are back running and now are third. The Argentinian opens the match and gifts the 2-0 to Guarin.
No fighting from Pescara.
Milan – Signs of awakening. Signs of restarting. With benefit of doubt. A doubt called Pescara.With Sneijder return to the San Siro as a semi-interest spectator, Inter are back to winning way after more than a month. And after conceded 12 goals in the last eight games, Handanovic finally gets a cleansheet. After two months of not scoring, Rodrigo Palacio scores again. Between him and Milito only had three goals in the last eight matches. Cassano is mobile just like the good old times. All this is thanks to the degree of freedom that Pescara granted the Inter players. However, it was truly FantAntonio who lasted for an hour. With this loss to Pescara, Inter increased the average points gained against small opponents to a bit less miserable 1.25 points.
Benassi In short, this cold raining day has left a good taste for Stramaccioni and the fans of Inter. The coach will keep getting satisfied because the packed infirmary will get lighter with many returns in the coming days. It also turns out that a little freshness also improves the style of play. We are referring to Marco Benassi who is the best player on the field together with Palacio (goal and assist for Guarin for the double). The boy was a master in the midfield. He is mature, secure, and very dynamic. With him in the middle, Inter seem to be a completely different team in a good way.
Another Pescara Inter totally deserved full credits in this win but we are still in doubt. It will take a more severe test to see if the club has found its game again as well as the hungry soul for victory. We do not need to wait long because next week, immediately test will come in the form of Roma at the Olympico. We will see. Because this Pescara were just too soft. The team, which arrived at the San Siro after two consecutive wins and especially the one at Florence, was a disappointment. They conceded so much space, little nastiness from behind, embarrassing up front. The various talents like Weiss and Celik were too cocky of their elegance but they played without any concreteness. Playing in style but never served a decent ball to the poor Jonathas up front, one that has his own problems. One has to wonder how Pescara got to beat a good Florentina team right at their home. Bergodi perhaps expected it. He took out an element in the trident to be more covered in the midfield and behind: Weiss played very wide on the left. Once they were down, the coach put him back behind the strikers. But the Slovak talent was in one of those days that he only dribbled and dribbled and dribble but did not build anything concrete. In the middle, only Bjarnason had to face a though Fredy Guarin.
The return of the tail Regarding Inter, they had little to worry about. Cambiasso seemed to be the true center back unlike in Udine. And in the offensive end, with Guarin behind the strikers, immediately seemed convincing. More sped. More determination to conquer spaces and opportunities. Palacio especially: the tail is back? It seems so. And when Pescara tried to react, Inter opened even more opportunities. And the proof is the second goal by Guarin who was along in the area after the assist from Palacio. If Cassano had not exhausted all his energy, Inter would have scored another couple of goals on the counterattack. Then there was enough time to see Rocchi, Mudingayi and Milito in the last minutes. We are waiting for Roma, waiting to see if Inter are really back.
