Scoring late goals shows tremendous improvement in physical condition
Inter have the ability to score in the last minutes as it has happened in the last two games. In addition to having character of steel, an improvement in general physical condition needs to be recognized.
Against Parma, due to the heat of the afternoon (the game took place at 3:00 pm), many players struggled and were just out of it after the goal scored by Dimarco. But against Tottenham and Sampdoria, two games that took place in the evening, things were much better.
Going back to late game goals, Luciano Spalletti had the luxury to remove Nainggolan for Borja Valero, the unmovable starter at the beginning of last season. Another example? Perisic was not in best condition at the Ferraris and he started on the bench. It is called turn over (or rotation), one that Allegri, with a better squad than Inter, uses scientifically.
