Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi has given updates on the fitness of several key men after their match against Sampdoria at the Marassi today.

Speaking in a press conference after the Serie A fixture, as reported by FCInter1908, the Nerazzurri manager spoke about the condition of a number of players who had taken knocks during an encounter which ultimately saw his team finish with ten men on the pitch thanks to injury.

Inzaghi spoke of his disappointment at only being able to take a point from the clash despite having played well and twice taken the lead.

The Nerazzurri went ahead through a Federico Dimarco free kick and then again through a Lautaro Martinez volley from a strong Nicolo Barella run, but on both occasions Roberto D’Aversa’s men found a way to equalize, and the coach was frustrated that the team weren’t able to make the most of any of their chances in the second half.

“It is normal that we regret the result after we went ahead twice, we wanted to win. We had three very good chances, then unfortunately Sensi’s injury happened and in the last twenty minutes we had to suffer,” Inzaghi stated.

“We go home with a draw that is precious to us,” he went on. “Credit to Sampdoria who were a great opponent.”

On injuries in the squad after the match, Inzaghi said that “They will have to be evaluated. As far as Sensi is concerned, he will probably have to have a spell out. For Dimarco and Barella there are positive indications, and then we will have to evaluate Bastoni for Wednesday’s match.”

“The two goals were very beautiful,” he said of his side’s two strikes, “it’s normal that we have to analyze the two goals conceded. Sometimes it can happen, the first is a deflection that wrong-foots the goalkeeper, and for the second you have to congratulate Augello.”

“We had had Dimarco’s problem with cramp and with that I had to use my last substitution,” he said of the end of the match, “at that moment I decided to make the double change and to bring Sensi on too.”

On Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid he said, “We will have to try to prepare for it it in the best way. It will be wonderful to play in front of our fans who even today made us feel as if we were at home. So we will come up against a great team but we will play at our best.”
