Media watch: Barella like Kante

Il Corriere dello Sport praises Antonio Conte after Inter’s win against Sassuolo: ‘He played Nicolò Barella like N'Golo Kante’ but the MVP was a different one.

Inter reached Sassuolo in second place in the Serie A table thanks to an away 3-0 win against the Neroverdi.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport, the MVP of the game was former Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian while La Gazzetta dello Sport gives Lautaro Martinez the MVP crown.

Darmian “gave balance and assisted Roberto Gagliardini for Inter’s third goal,” writes Il Corriere dello Sport while Lautaro Martinez “drove Sassuolo mad,” reports La Gazzetta.

Antonio Conte is also being praised by Italian papers.

"His decision to play Nicolò Barella in front of the defence turns out being a decisive one.

"The Italian midfielder was used in the same position where N'Golo Kante used to play at Chelsea under the Italian tactician," writes Il Corriere dello Sport.

The worst player on the pitch was former Tottenham defender Vlad Chiriches who is rated 4 by each three of the main Italian sports papers. The Romanian made a decisive mistake for Inter’s opener and scored an own goal to double the Nerazzurri’s lead in the first half.
