Three points the key for Inter against Qarabag
A repeat of the Stjarnan performance plus scoreline would obviously be ideal for Inter and their under pressure coach Walter Mazzarri. However, tonight the main target should be three vital points. The Nerazzurri face a progressively difficult fixture list as winter sets in and the last thing they need to be doing is scrapping away for Europa League qualification. A repeat of the 1-0 victory over Dnipro on matchday one would do just fine. If Inter finish the night atop of the group on six points, they can view the back to back games against St Etienne as a chance to wrap up qualification with games to spare. The rigors of Thursday-Sunday football normally hit a squad hardest as Europa League match days five and six roll round in late November/early December. Mazzarri would love to have the luxury of resting key men ahead of important league fixtures as Christmas and the New Year approach, for that reason tonight is all about the ‘W’.
