Last Updated on 25/10/2023 by

Even though it was not Inter’s finest performance of the year, they were able to win the match against RB Salzburg at home and earn three very vital points, which allowed them to remain tied with Real Sociedad in the group stage of the Champions League.

The majority of the possession throughout the first half was kept on the Inter side of the field, but RB Salzburg was able to seize control of the game early on. Despite the fact that there was a lot of movement and a few shots, none of them were actually dangerous to the Inter goal.

After that, in the nineteenth minute, Inter seized the lead in a counterattack, which went against the general flow of the game. Frattesi received the ball after Mkhitaryan sent it into the penalty area. Frattesi gave the ball to Sanchez with the barest of touches, allowing Sanchez to finish the play by shooting it into the back of the net. 

The away team appeared to be shaken when Inter scored, as they did not contribute much in the remaining time of the half. In point of fact, the best opportunity that remained in the first half was a near own goal by the Salzburg defense in response to a cross from Dumfries in minute 32.

The visitors started the second half in a similar fashion to the first, pushing forward but without having much to show for their efforts. In the 56th minute, Lautaro headed a cross from Dumfries to Augusto, who missed the target. This was Inter’s first significant opportunity of the second half. This was Inter’s first real chance of the half. Gloukh scored a goal for RB Salzburg after another minute had passed, and it involved a long ball, two quick passes, and a precise shot. 

The action carried on, and then in the 61st minute, Gourna-Douath brought down Frattesi within the penalty area, leading to the awarding of a penalty kick. After a review by the video assistant referee (VAR) and a few minutes of arguing, Inter took the lead, 2-1, with a shot by Calhanoglu that hit the bottom right corner of Schlager’s net. 

Inter felt that they had doubled their lead in the 81st minute, but Frattesi was offside before he passed the ball to Lautaro, which meant that the Inter captain’s goal did not count. Inter retreated to its defensive position for the remainder of the game, engaging in the odd counterattack while still managing to pull out the win.
