Dzeko eventually wins this header, but it goes over the bar in this instance. From here, you’re able to get a rough idea of how most chances are created for Inter in this match.
1.) Some sort of combination play to switch the point of attack.
2.) Exploit the wide underload, and find space to play a ball in from.
3.) Cause chaos in the box with a high number of runners, and increase the likelihood of you winning the second ball, even if the first one isn’t a goal.
Through these methods, Inter was pretty much able to dissect Sassuolo with possession of the ball, despite the tumultuous beginning to the match. A fun experiment into why xG often works out in the long run, Inter Milan played well despite the score-line, and will be frustrated not to have put themselves top of the table this week.
