What shit game of football. I wish someone would have spoiled it. We we again VERY lucky not to lose IMO.

Rino should have rested some players. Bakayoko looked exhausted all game long (but suddenly not anymore in the end, wtf ), Piatek struggling, and Kessiť injured. I really wish we'd have used Biglia more, and Cutrone (I guess he's being punished for the agent's antics?), and even Mauri or those guys.

Suso completely useless indeed, definitely needs to be left out .

Only highlight IMO was Calabria.

Rino didn’t want to risk his only chance at a silverware though everyone knows ucl spot is the only thing that matters. Hopefully this won’t have a bad effect on starters. It’s a long season ahead of us still.

A pity that he couldn't convert that chance (from Borini's overhead kick ).

We're unbeaten in nine games. Hopefully Rino and the players have learnt something from this game that they can take forward, and step up with a win against Sassuolo. Must play better if we want three points in that game.

Agreed.

This consistent line up and formation has to be counting for something going forward. Two must win games who are also tricky before the Derby. Inter also has two easy games so it’s critical we keep the two point gap before the big one.

Roma has the derby then two easy games then Napoli.

Piontek not getting his goal tally is one thing. Not getting service is ridiculous. This cement how awful our mids are.

Part of it was definitely tactical imo. I noticed that Piatek was pretty much the only person pressing most of the time. Everyone else dropped back into a defensive shell when Lazio had possession. We lack the speed to score off counter attacks playing that way.

I also noticed Laxalt and Calabria were really playing cautious. Did not see many overlapping runs. And Suso was dropping deep into midfield to pick up the ball constantly.

Hopefully in the second leg we play with more courage.

Good game to play bad and get a result. The draw isnt bad even though one goal for them at San Siro will make it very difficult for us to get to the final.

Luckily we have only Serie A in the next 2 months and than we play the second leg.

the next two games extremely important to get full points than see which Inter will show, even though against us they will be motivated and not losing against them would be good.

Rino should have played Biglia instead of Bakayoko and Cutrone for Piatek. Maybe even resting Paqueta.
