Bergomi: Inter could defeat Juve 3-0 if they had Lukaku

Mon 25 October 2021 | 9:19

The Nerazzurri legend believes the lack of a deadly striker has affected Inter’s performance in the final third.

Inter were held to a 1-1 draw in their Serie A game against Juventus on Sunday. An early goal from Edin Dzeko opened the scoring for Nerazzurri, who continued to dominate the possession throughout the game. However, Inter’s lead was canceled out in the 89th minute, when Paulo Dybala converted a penalty for the Bianconeri.

Inter had multiple chances to double their lead throughout the game, but they lacked enough composure to convert their chances. Giuseppe Bergomi believes the presence of a deadly striker in Inter’s final third could have changed the final result.

“Inter did better than Juventus, I don’t remember any shots on goal by the Bianconeri,”

Bergomi told

Sky Sport Italia.

“With Lukaku, this game end 3-0. I’m convinced of it. The only one that was really engaged was [Nicolò] Barella and, in fact, he had cramps at the end of the game.

“Centrally, the strikers now work in a different way, the player who gives depth is missing. But I still saw an Inter in total control.”

Despite their team’s relatively lower number of goals, Inter fans are not missing Romelu Lukaku too much. Edin Dzeko, who was signed this summer to replace Lukaku, has displayed impressive performances for the Nerazzurri this season. The Bosnian striker has scored eight goals and provided three assists in his 12 appearances for Inter as they sit third in Serie A.
