Inter defender Stefan de Vrij believes that the Nerazzurri will have to show their best in their remaining Champions League matches after a 0-0 draw against Shakhtar Donetsk earlier this evening.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, the 29-year-old reflected on a match which did not see the Nerazzuri at their best but from which they emerged with their first point of the group stage campaign.

De Vrij may have thought he had scored with a late header but Shakhtar keeper Andriy Pyatov made a good save to deny him, which summed up the Nerazzurri’s game well.

Unlike previous matches this season where Simone Inzaghi’s men have piled on the goal-scoring chances until they found a way through, Inter looked to be more controlled in possession and allowed their opponents long spells with the ball.

The Nerazzurri will have hoped that in the few occasions where they looked to have a potentially telling chance they could have been clinical, but in the end neither side managed to finish any of their opportunities.

“In the end my header looked like a goal, but unfortunately the goalkeeper made a great save,” de Vrij on Sky after said. “We came here to win, so we can’t be happy. I think the draw is right given how the game went, with opportunities for both sides.”

He went on, “The group remains open, of course, but now the next games become very important. We will analyze this match and let’s look forward to the league.”
