Inter Played Like A Confident European Side Against Real Madrid Despite Defeat, Italian Media Claim

Inter Played Like A Confident European Side Against Real Madrid Despite Defeat, Italian Media Claim

Inter showed that they have a system and game plan that can be successful in Europe against the best teams on Wednesday night, despite ultimately coming up short against Real Madrid, according to a report in the Italian print media.

As has been reported by Tuttosport, the 55% possession and 295 passes that Inter enjoyed during the game showed that they played without fear and took the game to Real Madrid, rather than feeling inferior against a side with such recent European pedigree.

Inter played 40 more passes than Real Madrid during the opening game of Group D, and that is exactly how they need to approach European games when they are at home.

The amount of chances that the Nerazzurri missed is what led to their downfall.

On another day it is much more likely that they would have come away with a victory, or at least one point to get their campaign underway.
