MILAN. Goals, spectacles, mistakes and Var. A little bit of everything happens between Inter and Atalanta, in an evening in which the roar of San Siro is back as protagonist, pulling Inzaghi’s Nerazzurri out of the swamps where they had slipped after 45 ‘. The scoreboard at the end says 2-2 with Inter getting back together after Lautaro’s initial advantage, catching up with Dzeko the Bergamo players who had overturned the result with Malinovskyi and Toloi, wasting the 3-2 ball with Dimarco kicking a penalty on the crossbar and in the final he had to thank the Var, who canceled Piccoli’s 2-3 goal because the ball had gone off the field on the development of the action. There was no shortage of emotions, even considering the 40 shots towards the goal, the game with the most conclusions so far in this championship. A tie that basically can know a joke for both.
Inter started strong, nearly taking the lead after 2 ‘with a plate from Dzeko just to the side. A first warning, because in the 5 ‘the 1-0 arrived: cross with Barella’s tachometer, Lautaro Martinez with a splendid flying right beats Musso and leads the Nerazzurri forward. Dzeko would also have the ball to double, but miss the last touch in front of the Bergamo goalkeeper. Gasperini’s men put their trust in Malinovskyi, who wakes up his men and drags them along. In fact, it is from the Ukrainian’s feet that the first dangers for Handanovic’s goal arrive, who capitulates when the former Genk with the left-handed finds the corner from distance for a draw. Atalanta raises the pace, sends Inter in difficulty but then Malinovskyi puts a hand in it again, with the help of Handanovic: the Nerazzurri captain does not hold back a shot from outside the Ukrainian, with Toloi leading the guests forward with an easy tap-in.
A domino from Bergamo that finds confirmation even at the beginning of the second half, when Malinovskyi still disguises himself as a driver: first from two steps he hits Handanovic in a slip, then on the corner he finds Palomino’s head that touches the goal, then with a poisonous free-kick hits the post. Inter seem to be on the ropes, but Simone Inzaghi revives them with the changes and the inclusion of Dimarco, Dumfries and Vecino, with the Uruguayan who heads immediately close to equalization, awakening San Siro too, who pushes the hosts. The protagonist, however, becomes Dimarco, for better or for worse. The product of the Nerazzurri nursery triggers the action of 2-2, with a southpaw deflected by Musso and confirmed on the net by Dzeko. Then, after a touch of Demiral’s hand in the area (seen from the Var), he kicks the penalty of the possible new advantage on the crossbar. A hard blow for the whole of San Siro, which risks becoming even more mockery shortly after, when Piccoli takes advantage of a sleep by the Inter defense to score the 2-3. But it is the Var who rushed to Inzaghi’s rescue, as the ball went out to the bottom in the action that led to the goal: Maresca cancels, amidst protests from Bergamo. The last thrill comes with a header from Dzeko that goes off to the side in the 95th minute. Inter, waiting for Napoli, thus sees Milan extend to the top and at the same time interrupts the streak of consecutive home victories in the league at 18. But, as for Atalanta (which will host the Young Boys), now the head goes to the Champions League: on Tuesday with Shakhtar Donetsk in Kiev for Simone Inzaghi’s men it will already be an inside-out match.
