Allegri taught Spalletti a tactical lesson tonight:

1. Suffocate: Allegri strangled Inter's right flank (which is where most of Inter's attacks originate) by putting in 3 levels of brute walls there (Mandzukic, Matuidi & Asamoah) which made Candreva & D'Ambrosio redundant in attack.

2. Dominate: Allegri started 3 physical midfielders to dominate the middle. Juve were first to almost all the 50-50 balls in the midfield. The sheer physical intensity of Matuidi and Khedira was too much for Inter's midfield to match.

3. Attack: He started Cuadrado to exploit Inter's defensive achilles heel (Santon). Cuadrado got behind Santon at every opportunity, it was almost like Santon didn't exist. Cuadrado was clearly instructed to send in long crosses by design. Higuain would then move in between Skriniar & D'Ambrosio, pulling Dumbo to him. The crosses almost always went over Dumbo where Mandzukic was waiting. This was clearly rehearsed, and if Mandzukic had slightly better balance and finishing, he could have scored a hat-trick tonight.

This was the reason why Mandzukic & Cuadrado started over Dybala and Costa. This also explains why Juve started with an extra midfielder instead of the 3rd CB. I won't blame Spalletti too much though. Inter just don't have the quality bench to change tactics drastically. There are no DMs. Maybe Spalletti should have started Gags instead of Candreva, but I suspect the result would have been the same.

Inter were lucky to escape with a draw. And a draw at Turin is very creditable. Now Inter need to win the next 2 games. My biggest worry is that the above is a good blueprint of how to stop this Inter. I expect other clubs to copy these tactics to whatever extent they can.

I got ridiculed in pre-season when I mentioned Spaletti will get the job done this season.

But unfortunately I think Juve have too much lungs. It will take a very bad patch of form for Juve for anyone else to win the league this season.
Exactly that, your team is way to good at the moment and its up to Juve to lose it, rather than Roma or anybody else to win it.

If you said that Inter will win the league, than yeah people where right to laugh at you. If you said that he will get them a CL spot, than you where on point.

Last night was pure luck on Inter's part, they could have easily lost by 2+ goals.

I'm reasonably confident that this will be the beginning of stutters for a lot of teams. No one could have possibly gone winning game after game like the top 4 did this season.

Meanwhile, 20 yrs of following this league and it's the first time I've heard of a team called Pordenone. Inter's opponents in the coppa.

Atalanta - Lazio this week end.

The week end after that :

SSC Napoli - Sampdoria

And the one after that:

Inter - Lazio

We need to grab the 9 points from the next 3 games. Its gonna be though because we play Fiorentina away, and Atalanta(our home though), but its not impossible.

If we do our job EL places will be back on track, and CL in striking distance.
