Inter played a friendly against Swiss club Lugano today and won 5-0, with 4 goals scored in the first half. Hakimi and Alexis created the 4 goals that were scored by Dalbert, a Lugano player and Lautaro (2). Lukaku won a penalty which he dispatched to make it 5-0 at the start of the second half.

Just a friendly but scoring 5 is nice. Positives are Hakimi and the link up between Alexis and Lautaro. First half I thought the result flattered us, Lugano hit the post and had another chance which went wide, but they kinda gave up after the og and the match changed as the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Inter goals all arrived in the last 15 minutes of the half.

Conte used 23 players.

First half: Samir, Bastoni, Ranocchia, Skriniar, Dalbert, Hakimi, Barella (Agoume), Gagliardini, Sensi, Lautaro and Alexis

Agoume replaced Barella who got injured, hopefully a minor thing.

Second half: Radu, De Vrij, Kolarov (lcb), D'Ambrosio, Young (rwb), Perisic (lwb), Brozovic, Nainggolan, Eriksen, Lukaku and Salcedo.

Was rather bored in the second half tbh, partially because it's a friendly, and probably because I didn't sleep well.

Friendly number 2 was against Carrarese (Serie C), finished 7-0


Good that Lukaku and Lautaro scored again but those games do not mean much.

Curiously, both Lugano and Carrarese were founded in the same year as Inter. Nice coincidence..

Final friendly will be today against Pisa (Serie B)

Another friendly against a poor opponent and another big scoreline. Which concludes our mini-pre-season, a bucket load of goals scored and none conceded in 3 matches but that means nothing.

Perisic played LWB. Good that Eriksen started and scored.

Perisic also played RWB in the second half. Grabbed an assist for Lukaku's goal.
