Excellent game preparation and horrendous game management for today.
Conte is blameless at the first half. It is not his fault if most of our players do not turn up for the match. Darmian seems hasn't playing football for 2 years, Young is mediocre at best, Lukaku cannot find space, and Alexis is closer to become their defender than to our attacker. Our strategy largely overwhelms Cagliari, see how our players understand their role and movement leading to the goal. We only suffer little trouble when we approach final third and Pavoletti wins individual physical duel against Bastoni but that's it.
The second half should incense every Interista. It is clear Alexis and Darmian are not in the game at all while we have superior Lautaro and Hakimi sitting on the bench. Then we choose to hunker down in the last 10 minutes with Gags and Vecino double subbed on. At least Conte can sub on Vidal instead of Gagscino because the former is much better defensively.
