In an interview with Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset, Inter manager Antonio Conte has shared his thoughts and feelings ahead of Inter’s Champions League group stage clash against Borussia Dortmund.

“The atmosphere will be electric. We know all about the atmosphere that the fans of Borussia Dortmund create. Having said that, we also know the strength of their team and we will use our strength and our personality on an important field trying to play our own game,” he said.

“It is an important game, it is useless to deny it. We are both on four points, it is a direct match and then there will be two other important matches, being able to make a result here would give us confidence and an extra boost.”

Next he was asked if he was claiming the credit for Romelu Lukaku’s fine form.

“No, absolutely not. He and Lautaro Martinez are 26 and 22-years-old respectively, they are getting used to our ideas and my ideas of ​​football, for us the attackers are fundamental. Playing with two strikers gives you effective solutions in the attack but they are also good on defence as they lend a hand to the team.

“Romelu must continue to work, he has important margins for growth. He and Lautaro Martinez can both only improve.”

In conclusion, he was asked if Stefano Sensi will start the match.

“Let’s see. He has recovered but we have to be sensible and not get caught up in the rush. It will be a physical game and I think Stefano can make a contribution. We will see if it will be from the beginning or during the match. We’ll evaluate the best solution.”
