Inter Legends React to Unfortunate UCL Loss to Real Madrid

Inter suffered an unlucky defeat to Real Madrid yesterday. Diego Milito commented: “They did not deserve to lose. A tie would have been the right result, as the performance was good. The Nerazzurri are a strong team, and I am convinced they will advance. The chants for me by the fans were great. It is tough to explain the sensation through words. It was a fantastic night, as it was like going back in time. I felt the urge to go out and play seeing the lads on the pitch.” The Argentinian legend is a pundit for Amazon Prime Video, which broadcasted the game in Italy.

Alessandro Altobelli talked to La Gazzetta dello Sport: “Inter played well, but they abated a little in the final minutes. They had a few chances to break the deadlock. Eventually, Real Madrid scored with a nice play, taking advantage of the great players they have at their disposal. Maybe they believed in it more up until the final whistle. It was a shame because the Nerazzurri measured up to them.”

The subs were slightly controversial. Altobelli weighed in: “I have great respect for Simone Inzaghi, whom I considered an excellent coach. It is easy to talk after the match, but I would never take out Lautaro Martinez, as he is too important to the team.”

Sheriff Tiraspol stunned the Roberto De Zerbi-led Shakhtar Donetsk in the other match of the group: “It means that there are no easy games. However, Inter are superior to both sides.”
