Inter gets one point from the home game against Napoli, a point that allows the team to still be in contact with Lazio and the 4th place for that last UCL spot. Inter coach Luciano Spalletti gave his views of the game in an interview with Premium Sport:

How do you rate this performance? “I think this was a good game, and by that I mean the level of intentions. They did better than us because they have the Sarri method, which the entire team knows. We were good at putting pressure and then backing off waiting. Napoli force you to play lower and we could have gotten off to a bad start. But some of the situations we took advantage of, others we did halfway. It is ok like that.”

You still aim for the UCL, but AC Milan is doing really well at the moment “We are like this, in some situations we manage to do more than expected in others we throw away possession. Some moments we have continuity while in other we just give away the ball to our opponents.”

The team has showed the right attitude tonight, maybe more points would have been gained if the team would have had the same attitude in other games? Why did you change positions on Cancelo and D’Ambrosio? “Cancelo is a player that if he plays badly on the right, he tells you that he should play 10 meters up in the pitch and if you play him on the left he tells you he should play at the right. Most players are like that, he in particular is like that. I wanted to give D’Ambrosio the opportunity to mark Insigne. He knows how to play with both his feet, he and he knows how to get out of difficult situations, typical for a trequartista. Therefore I changed.”

But howcome Inter does not have a “Spallettismo” like in Roma? Is this because of a lack of quality? “The game is all about knowing where to place Inter. We have had a tough period with a lot of poor games, but we have never played a great football because we do not have all the qualities that people claims. You have to be careful because if you want to play at the opponents half you need to know what you have behind. If you want to keep the play on their half with the opponents putting pressure on us, you must have the qualities needed in order to go beyond their defensive line with two touches. Napoli has that quality, we on the other hand…”
