Former Inter coach Mircea Lucescu believes that the Nerazzurri will not have an easy time in their Champions League clash against Shakhtar Donetsk this evening.

Speaking to Italian news outlet Tuttomercatoweb, the Romanian gave his view that the Ukrainian side have all the right qualities to make life difficult for Inter and get a result in the crucial group stage match.

Lucescu sees two of his former side go head to head in the form of Inter and Shakhtar, with the Romanian tactician having taken charge of the Ukrainian side for more than a decade.

The 76-year-old is now in charge of Shakhtar’s great rivals Dynamo Kiev, leading them to their first Ukrainian title in several seasons last campaign, but he is very wary of the threat post by his former side Shakhtar under former Benevento and Sassuolo boss Roberto De Zerbi who arrived in the summer and led the team to a Ukrainian Super Cup victory over Lucescu’s Dynamo.

“Shakthar is a good team, they won the Super Cup,” the Romanian coach said. “They like to keep possession of the ball and are very strong on the flanks, it will be difficult for the Nerazzurri.”

Lucescu also had a word on his former club’s Scudetto chances, stating that “They are a good team, even if they have lost a few points so far. I am convinced that they will compete for the Scudetto to the end.”
