Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi says his team regrets not taking advantage of the many chances they created against Juventus in the first half of yesterday’s match.
The Nerazzurri were beaten by Juve in a close match, but they were arguably the better team in the first half.
In an open half, he opened several times for Juve, but could not score a goal. That left the Bianconeri with no choice but to finish off the visitors in the second half of the game.
Both clubs have been underperforming this season, so the game was expected to go either way. Juve did much better in the second half and got a deserved victory in the match.
After the match, Inzaghi said through Football Italia:
“We had a very good first half and you can’t go into the break 0-0 at this stadium after that kind of performance.
“That’s where the regrets are. We started the second half well too, hitting the crossbar with Calhanoglu and then conceding on the counterattack. We lost our drive a bit, still had a chance to call and then conceded again.’
Juve FC says
We didn’t do so well in the first half, but we showed remarkable character to defend well and avoid conceding goals.
That tough defense set the stage for us to eventually win.
We have avenged one of the defeats we suffered at the hands of Inter last season, hopefully we will also win the reverse match.
