The 1-1 draw between Juventus AND Inter in the first leg of one of the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia. And again a racist act was the trigger for the controversy. to the Belgian Romelu Lukaku He was scolded from the Allianz Stadium stands as he stopped to take a penalty in the final minute. The powerful aggressor could not stand the discrimination and celebrated equality by making the gesture of silence and later shouting defiantly. Quick, the Colombian John William Square He went to get the stop and the pushes followed one another.

The shoving, the brawls, in which neither Ángel Di María nor Lautaro Martínez participated, were the highlight of the decent draw between two of the biggest teams in Italy.

For some long years, Italian football was boring. Not even Juventus-Inter, in the semifinals of the Italian Cup, manages to excite. He defends a lot and attacks with little imagination, which is why duels become heavy, boring, slow.

Surely there shouldn’t be a single reason. But the ambition of the coaches is perhaps one of the most important. Italians are conservative. The 5-3-1-1 was the scheme that Massimiliano Allegri chose for Juventus; 5-3-2 the one that Simone Inzaghi has chosen for Inter. And something else: The order for the 22 players on the field was to cross the line of the ball.

The 0-0 which ended the first half was logical and it is also understandable that they generated only one dangerous situation on each side (a weak header by Dusan Vlahovic for the locals, a shot in the middle of the goal by Marcelo Brozovic for visitors).

and they suffered angel of mary AND Lautaro Martinez, clear. El Fideo moved as an attacking midfielder, snag, and it was difficult for him to make contact with the ball; when he did, he was too far from the arc. The man from Bahía participated a little more than the man from Rosario, but he was not well attended. He barely manages to score a header that goes far into Di Marco’s centre. The feeling is that the Bull is stuck in the cast of Milan, beyond what appears and captain. Perhaps a change of scenery is needed: the Premier League would be ideal; there was speculation of a bid from Arsenal to add more concepts and mobility to the game than he did.

It didn’t change anything in the plugin. Di María was replaced after 19 minutes by Federico Chiesa and Martínez with 5 minutes remaining by former Estudiantes Joaquín Correa. Leandro Paredes, Enzo Barrenechea and Matías Soulé did not enter the premises.

The objectives? Juan Cuadrado gave La Vecchia Signora the lead in the 38th minute of the second half and Lukaku exchanged a childish penalty from Danilo for the goal, who put his hand in bad faith. Then would come the expulsions and the pushes

The second leg will be played on Wednesday 26 April at the Giuseppe Meazza.
