The second half started similar to the first as AS Roma couldn’t develop a rhythm between the midfield line and the attack to put pressure on Inter Milan, who remained in control of things. In the 68th minute, Alexis scored an unbelievable second goal from around 20 meters out that snuck into the top corner of the frame and essentially put this match out of reach for Mourinho’s men.
Former United striker Teddy Sheringham has urged the Red Devils to get a clear plan in place. Suggesting two prospective managerial targets, he wants his old club to make clear their succession plan for Rangnick.
There is no bigger match in Europe this weekend. After losing to AC Milan last week, Inter Milan has seen its lead in Serie A shrink to a point over AC Milan and Napoli. Now, Inter has a match in hand, which is huge, but a loss here would put Napoli in first, two points ahead. On Sunday, a Milan win over Sampdoria would then see Inter drop from first to third. Meanwhile, a win for Inter in this spot would provide a nice cushion.
