Icardi-Martinez tandem showed promises but defense needs work
After three friendly matches, Inter fans finally got to see Icardi and Lautaro Martinez playing together up front. The two showed good understanding: Mauro scored the goal and Lautaro served a great ball to Candreva for the assist.
However, Tuttosport points out that the defense still needs some work as it has allowed six goals in three games (2 Sion, 3 Zenit and 1 Sheffield). Because just 12 months ago, the defensive record was so much better, allowing there goals against Schalke 04 (1), Lyon (0), Bayern Munich (0), Chelsea (1), Villarreal (1) and Betis (0).
