All five Inter goals so far are in the box, Icardi's territory. The new trend...
There is more at Inter than Mauro Icardi. Three matches are too few to establish anything but according to the Gazzetta dello Sport, they are enough to read a new trend when it comes to scoring for the Nerazzurri.
If last season, Mauro Icardi was responsible for 44% of all Inter goals in the league (29 out of 66), this season so far, Inter have 5 goals and the Argentinian still has not been on the scoresheet.
There is another symbolic value behind this trend: all Inter goals were scored inside the box, Icardi’s “home sweet home” if you will, his private territory.
It is too early to say but it is clear that Spalletti has trained the players to get closer to the opposing goal, particularly Perisic who has 2 goals and 1 assist already to his name.
