Just as Leicester City won in football news, Inter won 4-0 but Cagliari’s goalkeeper is the Man of the Match. Goalkeeper Alessio Cragno is the real hero from last night because the Nerazzurri had a record 15 shots on target.

It could’ve been a massacre at San Siro for the Sardinians last evening, had Internazionale been more accurate on-target. And that is without even counting the goals that Lautaro Martinez, Alexis Sanchez and Hakan Calhanoglu scored.

And this is why, in this Serie A fixture on Sunday, the Man of the Match was the Cagliari goalkeeper. Alessio Cragno faced a siege between the sticks but conceded only 4 besides the 15 shots Inter attacked him with.

Opta calculated Inter’s shots on target, a new record in Serie A since they started gathering this data in 2004-05.

Furthermore, Opta reveal, there were actually 24 attempts from Inter overall.

Plus, they rattled the frame of the goal whenever they did beat Alessio Cragno, and of course, scored four times.

Beside becoming the Man of the Match, Cragno also consolidated his status as a spot-kick specialist. He has now six penalties since 2017-18 in Serie A, more than any other goalkeeper during this 4-year period.

However, this was Cragno’s first penalty save in the top flight since August 2020, which was also at San Siro. On that occasion, he saved a penalty strike from Milan, from the white spot.
