Inter Manager Inzaghi Praises ‘Intelligent’ Game Against Juventus

Inter managed to narrowly oust Juventus by a 1-0 scoreline in order to reinforce their bid for a second successive Scudetti after a string of 1-1 draws against Torino and Fiorentina. The Bianconeri dominated large spells of the game, without actually managing to hurt the Nerazzurri throughout the ninety minutes of play.

Coach Simone Inzaghi was impressed with his team’s showing, commenting that they played an ‘intelligent’ game in his post-match press conference.

He said: “The team played a very intelligent game. We played well. In the first half there was that crossbar where there is certainly a foul on Handanovic, in the second half there was that raid by Zakaria, let’s not forget that we were playing against a very strong team.” (via FCInterNews)

He then revealed his disappointment at missed chances that would have extended his team’s margin on the score board.

“In the second half we had two or three situations like Correa’s or Perisic’s shot, where we probably could have done something more,” he said.

Finally, he shed light on the intense title race between the three Italian heavyweights.

“It is a fundamental stage in this moment in which we are chasing Milan and Naples. But there are still eight games left and the path is still long for everyone,” he ended.

The result sees Simone Inzaghi’s men back on track in the three-way title race, as they sit just three points off second placed Napoli with a game in hand.

They face Hellas Verona next in the league, before heading to Stadio Alberto Picco to face Spezia a week later.
