Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez has found himself under scrutiny following a disappointing display against Roma in their recent match. The player ratings published in the print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, as reported by FCInterNews, assessed the Argentine's performance as "anonymous," awarding him a meager 5/10.
Throughout this season, Martinez has been Inter's key figure in the attacking department. Taking over the captain's armband, the 26-year-old has showcased his prowess by notching eleven goals in Serie A and one in the Champions League.
However, in the game against Roma, his impact was conspicuously absent. Martinez struggled to get a clear opportunity at goal, and Inter had to seek inspiration elsewhere to break the deadlock.
Instead, it was Martinez's strike partner, Marcus Thuram, who garnered accolades for his standout performance. The Frenchman netted the match's only goal, capping off an impressive outing.
In contrast, Martinez appeared to be a shadow of his usual self. The Inter captain failed to ignite the attack as he typically does. He refrained from taking on the Roma defense and creating the chaos that is within his capabilities. Cowboy Channel Plus
