AS Roma vs.  Internazionale - Match Report - December 4, 2021

(EFE) – Inter Milan crushed the Roma of Portuguese José Mourinho 3-0 this Saturday at the Roman Olympic stadium and prolonged their sweet moment in Serie A three days before the appointment with Real Madrid, in which the first group place in the UEFA Champions League will be played.

Inter was momentarily placed second in the table, one point behind Milan, which beat Salernitana 2-0, and with a margin point over a Naples that received the fearsome Atalanta this Saturday.

The Milanese team completely surpassed a Roma in which Mourinho, faced with the emergency due to a long series of casualties, opted for a very conservative eleven, with seven defensive-minded men.

A bet that failed before the push of Inter, which sealed its comfortable triumph with three goals in the first half and that was able to expand the margin at the restart, if a long series of opportunities were not missed.

The Turkish Hakan Calhanoglu broke the equality at the quarter of an hour with an Olympic goal directly from a corner kick, with “help” from the Portuguese goalkeeper Rui Patricio, and gave in the 24th the assistance for the Bosnian Edin Dzeko, formerly of Rome, to extend the margin.

The Bosnian did not celebrate his goal out of respect for the fans of his former club, in which he scored 119 goals in 260 games, which nevertheless dismissed him from the field with a loud whistle.

The Dutch Denzel Dumfries, with a great goal from the head, determined on the brink of the break the final 3-0 that confirmed the growth of Inter and the lack of technical and tactical resources of Rome.

Mourinho, whose name was chanted by his former fans, grateful for the treble conquered in 2010, could not count on the Englishman Tammy Abraham, Stephan El Shaarawy, the Dutchman Rick Karsdorp or the captain Lorenzo Pellegrini this Saturday, which significantly complicated his work.

In 16 rounds, his Roma already suffered seven defeats and could lose fifth place in favor of Fiorentina, Bologna and Juventus.
