Inter, best defense in the league thanks also to defensive expert Martusciello

Inter have the best defense in the league and second best in all of Europe. The success of Inter rests on a solid defense that Luciano Spalletti and his staff have implemented ever since training camp started back in July.

Let’s go back to the 2015-2016 season where Inter had an amazing start of five wins and one defeat under Roberto Mancini, 15 points after six matches: seven goals scored and five allowed, four of these were in the hands of Fiorentina and a crazy Kalinic. This season, Inter are on 16 points after six games with five wins and one draw: 12 goals scored (eight in the final 15 minutes) with only two allowed (one was to last season’s goalscoring champion Edin Dzeko and the other was a fantastic long shot by Verdi of Bologna).

Let’s not forget the much appreciated added value, especially on the defensive end, in assistant coach and defensive guru Giovanni Martusciello who left his club to follow Spalletti.
