Ex-Inter forward Alessandro Altobelli has suggested that Simone Inzaghi’s substitutions were part of the problem against Real Madrid in the 1-0 defeat on Wednesday night, according to a report in the Italian media.

Speaking during an interview after the game with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Alessandro Altobelli claimed that he would not have taken Lautaro Martinez off the pitch in the 65th minute, as Simone Inzaghi did.

“The changes? I respect Inzaghi and it is easy to talk later but I would not have removed Lautaro because he is too important, perhaps with Correa they could make the most of the restarts.”

Overall though, Alessandro Altobelli agreed with Simone Inzaghi that the Nerazzurri played very well at times during the game. Real Madrid just managed to find that killer touch that had been missing for Inter all night long.

“The Nerazzurri proved to be a good team, the decline came in the final few minutes after several chances to take the lead.

“Real have found the blow, they believed in it perhaps more in the end. But Inter played well.”

On the other game in Group D, Alessandro Altobelli was pleased to see that FC Sheriff beat Shakhtar Donetsk. This is because he claims Inter are a superior side to the Ukrainian champions and they now have the opportunity to beat them and create a three point gap.

“Did Sheriff win? I was surprised by the quality and intensity of the game, but Inter are also superior to Shakhtar and must prove it to reach the last 16. I have confidence.”
