Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi believes that his team did not give the best account of themselves but still had chances to win the match in a 0-0 draw against Shakhtar Donetsk earlier this evening.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia after the match, the Italian tactician gave his immediate reaction to a match which saw his team fail to find fluency and leave with a point against an impressive Sheriff side.

The Nerazzurri did not look as attack-minded as they have in recent matches, looking for more controlled sequences of passing while also allowing the opposition to keep the ball at times, prioritizing defensive solidity.

In spite of this, the team managed to create a few presentable goal-scoring opportunities, with the likes of Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez failing to find the back of the net from promising positions and a few other situations from both teams suggesting that on another night the match could have finished with another scoreline than the 0-0 which it did.

“We faced a strong team that had a lot of technical quality, we had the misfortune of not having finished out chances,” Inzaghi said. “We could have finished better, we had five chances even in a not terribly brilliant evening. We could have won it.”

Of strikers Dzeko and Martinez he said, “They played a great game and sacrificed a lot, even Correa and Sanchez as well who are back from injury problems. We have many games close together, we knew it would be a tricky game.”

He closed with his thoughts on the Nerazzurri’s place in Group D after two matches played, stating that “Shakhtar are an unpredictable team, we had to score goals for all that we created. We hit the crossbar and found their goalkeeper. They remain a strong opponent, and we will meet again at San Siro.”
