Alexis Sánchez gestures to Frattesi, the ball is remote-controlled: Atalanta defense motionless


Alexis Sanchez makes a gesture to Frattesi and puts a delightful cross into the penalty area: the ball is remote-controlled and his teammate scores with a header. Inter scores for the fourth time, Atalanta 's defense is immobile. Niño Maravilla was the protagonist of the assist for the 4-0 and other good plays: after the good performance in Lecce, another positive sign for Simone Inzaghi from the Chilean striker.

The league leaders played another great game and are now ahead of second place Juventus by +12. In the last injury time of the round which saw the Nerazzurri and three other teams competing in the Italian Super Cup in Arabia, Inter won clearly against a strong team and sent yet another signal of strength to the championship. Alexis Sánchez also entered among the protagonists of the match, starting from the bench but leaving his mark with an assist to the kiss for Frattesi.

The Chilean entered the field in the 68th minute, replacing Lautaro Martínez, and showed off his skills right away. Three minutes later Alexis brushed a cross over the head of a teammate for the last goal of the evening: Sanchez, before taking the free kick, first glanced at Frattesi and then made a precise gesture to him.

The ball from Inter's number 70 is remote controlled and the former Sassuolo midfielder only has to hit it to send it into the net at the near post. Frattesi will then be out due to an adductor problem: his condition will be monitored in the next few days in view of the championship and Champions League commitments.

Sanchez showed himself to be very enterprising and 'on the ball' even as a substitute: the performance in Lecce was very positive but it was clear to everyone that Arnautovic would start against Atalanta. Despite this, Alexis was ready and if he were to continue like this in the coming weeks he could become very important in Simone Inzaghi's attacking rotations.

Niño Maravilla knows that he is risking his future in recent months: at the moment the chances of renewal seem slim, also in light of the almost three million salary at the age of 35, but nothing has been decided yet.
