AC Milan Legend Alessandro Costacurta: “Inter Can’t Afford To Miss This Many Chances In Champions League

Legendary former AC Milan defender Alessandro Costacurta believes that Inter must start to become more clinical with their goalscoring chances in the Champions League.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia after the Nerazzurri’s goalless draw with Shakhtar Donetsk, the 55-year-old gave the view that so far the Nerazzurri have been punished for a lack of a real edge in front of goal in Europe’s top competition.

Scoring goals has not been a problem for Inter in Serie A, with twenty goals from six matches the best attacking return in Italy, but after two matches in the Champions League they have yet to find the back of the net.

This is not for lack of presentable opportunities to do so, with decent chances having fallen to a number of Inter players against both Real Madrid and Shakhtar.

However, up to this point not a single one has been dispatched, and as Costacurta points out, this can cost them dearly against the calibre of opposition they face in the Champions League.

“Inter made mistakes in the final moments,” he said, “Dzeko’s miss was sensational. He was also off target against Real Madrid. These are mistakes that you cannot afford in the Champions League because you face stronger teams than in the league.”

He went on, “In Italy you score three goals. If opportunities come to you in Europe, you must take advantage of them. This is the gap we have compared to European clubs. We still make mistakes that no one in Champions League can afford.”
