Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi has given his thoughts on the tactical approach that will be necessary to get the right result from tomorrow’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

Speaking to Inter TV, as reported by FCInterNews, the 45-year-old gave his insights on what the important priorities will be when facing the La Liga leaders in tomorrow’s group stage opener at the San Siro.

Inter meet in Real Madrid a team who they could not get a result against on two occasions last season as they failed to progress from their group while the Merengues topped the group on the way to an eventual semi-final appearance.

Both teams have changed coaches since, with Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane making way for Inzaghi and Carlo Ancelotti respectively, but the objective of getting maximum points will remain for both.

The failures to progress to the knockout rounds in the last three seasons’ editions of Europe’s top competition only underline the importance of doing well this time around, and Inzaghi gave his thoughts on what the Nerazzurri will have to do to achieve this.

“You have to play every game to the maximum,” he said of the Champions League. “With Lazio I finished the group unbeaten, and went on to a wonderful knockout round. We start against the strongest team – the past is the past, we have a chance to do positively in the present.”

“We will have to be at our best in both phases of the game because Madrid will have a lot of quality, we will have to be good at keeping possession. When we have the ball we have to try to make them run,” he explained of the approach needed.

“It doesn’t change the math of the group,” Inzaghi said of starting off against Real, “it will be a wonderful match to experience. We challenge a very strong team with an excellent coach, we will try to do our best.”

He went on about his brother Filippo who played under Madrid manager Ancelotti at Milan, “Pippo talks about him very highly because he is a great coach, a born winner. I met him while he was with Napoli, now I will meet him in the Champions League.”

Of the atmosphere at the San Siro for the clash, the former Lazio boss said that “It will be the second home game because there has already been the debut against Genoa. Now we will return to our stadium, we will try to play a great match.”
