Inter Women have hit a promising patch of form towards the end of the regular season in the Women’s Serie A and they put Pomigliano to the sword on Matchday 16, winning 6-2 down in Campania. Two of those goals came from Lina Magull, who has been chosen as our Women’s Serie A Player of the Week.
Magull only arrived at Inter midway through the January transfer window, choosing to have her contract with Bayern Munich terminated so that she could make the move. Considering she captained Bayern for three years and won the Bundesliga twice, it was an eyebrow-raising move for the Nerazzurre.
Since arriving, she has scored five Serie A goals in three games, two of which came in this Matchday 16 clash with Pomigliano. The first goal was a very smart lofted finish when most in the box had stopped, with the second being from close range. Beyond the goals, she also had an 86.3% pass accuracy and played five progressive passes.
Will Inter cause issues after the Women’s Serie A split?
There are just two more matchdays to play in Women’s Serie A before the league splits in two, and Inter already know that they will be in the top half when it does and are at no risk of relegation.
Whilst there is a 10-point gap between them in fourth and Fiorentina in third, recent signings and an upturn in form suggest that AS Roma, Juventus and La Viola need to be very careful when facing Rita Guarino‘s side, who could still have something to say about where the title goes and who gets into the Women’s Champions League.
Magull has clearly made Inter a better team, but Annamaria Serturini scored a superb goal against Pomigliano which suggests she will be a threat for the rest of the campaign. Another new signing, Chiara Robustellini, also scored and impressed, as did Marija Ana Milinkovic. They appear to have shopped well in January, although it is surely too late to think about Champions League football.
