Italian journalist Paolo Condo believes that Inter took three points for granted too much when they found the lead early on against Lecce in their Serie A opener on Saturday.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, Condo gave the view that after the early opening goal from Romelu Lukaku, the Nerazzurri seemed to have been convinced into thinking that winning would be a straightforward procession.

Inter did win in the end against Lecce, but it was not as easy as they’ll likely have expected it to have been, and certainly not as easy as they’ll have thought once they found their opening goal without a great deal of trouble.

It was in the first couple of minutes that the Nerazzurri opened the scoring to go ahead, but it was in the dying seconds that they scored their second goal to secure the three points, and Condo feels that there was a mentality issue at play.

“Lukaku’s goal fooled Inter into thinking that they’d win easily, perhaps underestimating Lecce,” he said.

As far as how the Nerazzurri turned it around, Condo argued that “It highlights the difference between having three substitutions compared to five. Inzaghi put on five top players and the Giallorossi could do little.”
