Inter-Villarreal 2-4 in a friendly match, goals from Lukaku and D’Ambrosio, but it is defense alarm –

from Paolo Tomaselli, sent to Pescara, and Sport editorial staff

Inter have conceded ten goals in summer football six days after the league debut against Empoli. Equal Naples between the protests, Lazio ko on penalties.

This time Inter did not complete the comeback as he had done with Monaco and Lyon, he loses 4-2 with Villarreal and six days after his debut against Lecce – trembling and eliminated from the Cittadella in the Italian Cup – he gives the air of being still weighed down and looking for the right understanding with Lukaku, the striker who changes a team with his goals, but also with his style of play and his characteristics. On the embarrassing painted grass of the Pescara stadium, Inzaghi – that in five outings he only beat Lugano and saw his team concede too many goals (10)does the dress rehearsal against the Spanish Champions semifinalists, who play with two inexperienced strikers and for long stretches exasperate their wait-and-see football.

The new Inter of the Lukaku-bis, without Perisic, must get used to digging out the defenses that they close so low. Without Brozovic, at precautionary rest due to a calf discomfort, the most anticipated man is therefore the twenty-year-old Asllani in the heart of the game: the Albanian makes several mistakes (the 2-1 Spaniard is born from the second lost ball), struggles to get out in pressing with the right timing, but he has quality to work on, first of all that of verticality, which Inter exploits little. With Skriniar making his debut as a starter and Gosens giving signals on the left, the Nerazzurri try to mess up Emery’s double line with continuous changes of field. The best thing, that is the 1-1 goal, was born by ball on the ground thanks to Lautaro: Gosens’ cross from the left exalts Lukaku in the aerial duel with Torres. The Belgian al second header in a rowbut otherwise struggles with no space available, not to mention the lack of help from Calhanoglu and Lautaro.

Villarreal is brought closer in the final by D’Ambrosio’s 3-2, (header from a cross by Dimarco, among the most in the ball), but soon scores the fourth goal with Jackson, who sinks the blow into the tender defense. The Spanish advantage had always arrived on the Inter right, with a volley from Pedraza on a prolonged ball with a header after a cross by Foyth, with Barella too passive. The 2-1 penalty in motion by Yeremi Pino (but central), while the third goal at the beginning of the second half still by Pedraza, who sows Skriniar and with a close shot puts capitan Handanovic, and perhaps not only him, already in the face of the evidence: or the competition with Onana pushes him to improve clearly
their performance or the job title at risk.

Napoli-Espanyol 0-0, De Laurentiis furious for too many fouls

It ends 0-0 but it was anything but a friendly match between Napoli and Espanyol played in Castel di Sangro, with the Catalans definitely over the top. After a fight between Osimhen and Gomes and a double badass on Anguissa, best in the field, and Lozano (only yellow cards), the president Aurelio De Laurentiis got up from the bench to go to protest against the first assistant Stringini asking for a more severe measure. At the end of the first half, he waited for the referee, Scatena di Avezzano, to make his complaints to him too while Spalletti tried to calm the spirits. Napoli made progress, dominating the game, but failed to materialize and stumbled on the third draw out of 4 games.

Valencia-Atalanta 2-1, the Nerazzurri are subdued

This time the return to Mestalla was not the best for Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta: the Nerazzurri lost 2-1 against the hosts of Valencia, winners of the 50th edition of the Naranja Trophy, a historic friendly competition organized by the club home. A painless defeat as seen in the second half, with applause for Ederson’s conclusion at the far post to overtake Mamardashvili. Best of the field Hugo Duro, author of a brace – a heel and a head goal -, also the performance of the former Milan Samu Castillejo to underline. In the second half, two changes were enough – Malinovskyi and Pasalic in place of Muriel and Scalvini – to shake up a team below its natural intensity: Ederson thought about temporarily equalizing the score with a feat: Koopmeiners launch from the left stopped in the chest by the former Salernitana who turns, eludes Diakhaby and the square under the intersection.
