The Nerazzurri center the twelfth success in a row at home and beat Fiorentina 3-1 thanks to goals from Cambiasso and Pazzini and Coutinho in the first half on a free kick in the second half. Gilardino's goal of signing the flag. And now the team of Leonardo has 4-point lead over Napoli


MILAN, May 8, 2011 - Two days after the end of the season, already awarded the first place, Inter moves to +4 on virtually Blinda Naples and the second position (as well as gain the confidence of arithmetic still be among the first four ), at the expense of Fiorentina brilliant, but less motivated the Nerazzurri.
Gilardino then shortens the distances in the second half, but then Coutinho, a free-kick, it stores the match. And for all is the twelfth consecutive home success.

Eto'o welcomes the public.

Eto'o, two assists - Inter orphan Stankovic, Motta, Sneijder and feverish Nagatomo, as well as the suspended Mariga, finds two unexpected characters: Leonardo fact Materazzi row in place of Lucius and Coutinho for Pandev (with Samuel on the bench 183 days after the injury).​
But are not the only "experiments" by Leonardo have a strong back four protected by Zanetti and Cambiasso, with Kharja, Coutinho and Eto'o to make the former from prompters Pazzini, benchmark advanced.

On the other side chooses the former Mihajlovic Cerci-Gilardino trident-Vargas, as Jovetic is still recovering. The result is a vibrant first time since the beginning, with Inter who wants a guaranteed second place and that Fiorentina did not make any further demands in the league, but do not want to deface San Siro. Without the stress of the worst days, the Inter finds inspiration and space to set up a call from the lady of the house, made of airy gusts offensive game and choral quality.

The pace is high, the Fiorentina wall but does not own, and in turn respond blow for blow without being able to continuously get the parties to Julio Cesar. And the two teams take seriously is confirmed by the facts: After 7 'Pazzini warming the engine up by sending a good position, three minutes later the former department linking Gilardino hits the street in anticipation Frogley, and still does not want to be by Pazzini and less than 12 'in the narrow turns and rolls, with Boruc raising the bar. In short, race is real, and also full of ideas and suggestions potential winners. Boruc and Julio Cesar have their say, then Eto'o marked a turning point: the 25 'puts in half a low cross and Pazzini not believe their luck to score in the first half (1-0), then at 28' the beats Cameroon punishment, turned into a goal by Cambiasso (2-0), the seventh seal in the league. Maicon could close the match at the end, but Boruc says no.

Coutinho, who scored the goal of 3-1.

gila shortens - In the second half Leonardo begins to think the return of the Italian Cup semifinal on Wednesday at the San Siro against Roma, so does catch his breath a bit 'Eto'o, who comes in a round of applause convinced, to make room for Pandev .

Gilardino is quick to understand that there is, and after 7 'is close to goal. Mihajlovic assenda the vein of her and sent on Mutu, who injects liveliness to purple. Inter down the pace and look for the active control of the match, Fiorentina will not be mesmerized. Indeed, Gilardino to 29 'shorter distances. But Inter has clear and concrete especially for sale: Coutinho right with a free-kick Boruc to beat 32 'and sets the result to 3-1. A couple of great assistance to Julio Cesar in the final, first on Mutu (Cambiasso providential Montolivo up), then Gilardino, and the race ends here, with the fact that Inter Blinda second place in the league and is projected on the cup Italy.

THE DAY AFTER

Inter of regrets assured Champions League spot.
Pazzini, Cambiasso, Coutinho: Fiorentina K.O. after Milan celebration.

Milan - The day after Milan won the Scudetto, Inter beat Fiorentina 3-1 and wondered once again how the story would go if Pazzini (15th goal on Saturday, 9th with Inter) arrived sooner and if Coutinho (1st goal of the season) had someone in front of him in the early season when the poor Benitez was forced to bet on him. But the win yesterday is a good read on the future. Leonardo was also fine: Eto'o did well (2 assists and with useful kilometers covered) and the key players such as Lucio, Milito were able to rest. In short, a good approach to the second leg against Roma for the Italian Cup.

Leo But there is good evidence for even further future. The risk of having to play in the preliminary round of the Champions League has been averted because the second place is almost a lock. And then there is another shovel of consent for Leonardo that even in these days of the end of the season, with motivations at minimum, under the sun on holidays, the team still manages to get what he wants. Inter are more and more his. The numbers also comfort Leonardo as much as Moratti has done in recent days: 16 victories in 21 matches (12 at home) in the league, has averaged more points per game than Scudetto winner Milan with the opportunity of beating Mourinho if he wins the last two games to become the best newcomer of Inter in the era of 3 points per win. Of course, it is better to win on the field rather than in projections, but what Leo is doing is not banal. Unlike Leonardo, Mihajlovic can not squeeze his desires into a Fiorentina who is lacking motivations. After the good day against Udinese, Fiorentina came to the San Siro with the souls in their pajamas. They only woke up only in the second half when they were already down by two goals. Mutu came on and Gilardino, Fiorentina best player, reopened the match before Coutinho sealed it. It was a good and fierce due between Gila and Pazzo, two former teammates and competitors in the Azzurri: a goal for each.

  • Inter unblock the deadlock with the classic goal of Fiorentina former player. Gamberini and De Silvestri on Eto'o and he sent a low ball to Pazzini: the striker was back against the goal but in a flash, he beat Boruc using the right foot.
  • The double came soon after. The assistman was still Eto'o from a free-kick on the left on. Cambiasso headed in and "froze" the Viola goalkeeper.
  • The wait is over: Coutinho scored his first goal for Inter with a splendid free-kick which he slipped near the post. He is the 16th Inter player this season in Serie A to score.
Little Viola Compared to the recent game against Lazio, almost no one slipped. Not so much on the gardeners but they were all too slow to slip with the rhythm from a dance hall. Inter did more. It was like a training session for them ahead of Roma. Leonardo had five that formed on two lines, between defense and attack, trapping the Viola midfield and everything ended there. D'Agostino and Montolivo struggled to get out, and the wingers and fullbacks offered little help. Cerci had a shaky start while Vargas was just in the shadow of Maicon. More incisive were the Inter players. Coutinho teased on the right with Eto'o continuously knocked on the doors on the left. And with greater consistency at the 25th minute, Pazzini scored the first goal. He defended the ball with his back against the goal with Natali on his neck. He turned and electrocuted Boruc with a textbook finish of a good striker. Cambiasso doubled the lead three minutes later by heading it in the goal from a soft free-kick by Eto'o: 2-0.

Milan again? In the second half, Inter wanted to save energy for Wednesday and because of that they allowed Fiorentina, powered by Mutu, which came on for D'Agostino, to reopen the game. Gilardino scored a fine goal (29th) which is his 12th in the league. The numbers will always be his best antidote for the doubters. Three minutes later, Coutinho, who was dejected error after error, stroked in a free-kick Sneijder style. Between tomorrow and Wednesday, Inter will find out if Milan will be their direct opponent for the last goal of the season: the Italian Cup.

Ben giocato ragazzi, adesso per la Coppa Italia!

Brilliant performance, Coutinho demonstrating his improvement and his transition from futsal into professional football. As the article above suggests, would we have won it if we were not under that bloated idiot Benitez and with a clinical striker up front? Hm.

Am watching the reply of the game as I did not have the opportunity to catch the game live.
I thought Chivu had a great game. He won most 1v1 situations, covered his area well and his passes were precise. Hope more good things to come. Eto once again was one of the best. He needs to get his desired contract extension. Pazzini. I am so glad we picked him up over the winter. He has the natural instinct for goals. Coutinho showed some promises.
As far my man Montolivo goes, he had a quiet game, but showed some glimpses of his undenying talent and skills. If he were in a bigger team he would be more known. So, hopefully he can join us for next season. IMO deserves the shot.

Montolivio is decent, but he's a big game choker. He rarely shows up when it's needed and I don't think he Is what we need for you MF.

I have a gut feeling if he was in a bigger team he will finally shine. That is just me though.
