Inter Milan coach Inzaghi: We deserved to defeat Atletico Madrid by more

Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi admitted concern after their 1-0 win against Champions League opponents Atletico Madrid.

Inter took control of the round 16 tie, but felt they should’ve scored more on the night.

Inzaghi said, “It’s very satisfying, the lads were wonderful against a physical, technical side that did not make it at all easy.

“We know this is only the first leg, the second match will be tough, and certainly there are regrets for the result considering with all that we created, we deserved a wider scoreline. This is football, we keep going.

“I said yesterday in my press conference that Arnautovic and Alexis Sanchez are doing really well in training and when called upon. I am happy that Marko got the goal, he deserved to score earlier, then Alexis came on with the right spirit.

“Thuram felt the adductor pull during the sprint on the Lautaro Martinez pass, then felt pain again when he hit the finish. He will have tests and we hope that we won’t lose him for long.”

Inzaghi also said: “We were up against quality opponents, but Inter played very well. Let us not forget that when Atletico Madrid have the ball, it is tough to get it off them. We probably made a few too many misplaced passes in the first half, but Atleti were clammed up with two lines.

“We moved the ball around better after the break and I think we deserved more than 1-0. The midfielders sacrificed themselves and we worked as a team. The substitutions helped, as we weren’t our usual selves in the first seven or eight minutes of the second half, but we got back on track, created chances that we should’ve scored.

“I know that Sommer didn’t make any actual saves, but there were a few situations like the Samuel Lino shot and Alvaro Morata header where we could’ve done better.”
