Inter apply an aggressive man-to-man approach which helps them in pressurising the opposition and forcing them into losing the ball.
They have an aggressive approach in terms of challenge intensity, as they create 2vs1 (and also 3vs1) situations, surrounding the ball carrier, especially when moving closer to their defensive third.
They use Martínez’s and Barella’s speed to counter, and the Argentine is often the player to utilise these chances. The wing-backs also perform well on the break but the whole team doesn't counter.
When building up through the sides, the players rely on link-up-play, as well as overlapping and underlapping runs. Bastoni is the centre-back that moves into a more advanced position and supports ball progression with his runs where he can combine with Dimarco/Perišić and Çalhanoğlu.
The three-man backline widens to allow the rest of the team to move into a more advanced position and have better coverage centrally to open the passing lanes and progress the ball.
The team use a lot of movement in their build-up play without clearly defined lines. Instead, each player often moves up and down the pitch to open the passing lanes and provide a passing option.
