Inter have failed to replicate their goalscoring form from Serie A in their two Champions League matches so far, leaving them on only a point after two group stage matches.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who highlight the Nerazzurri’s failure to dispatch their chances in Europe’s top competition, which has not been a problem domestically.
Inter have created a number of goalscoring chances against both Real Madrid and Shakhtar Donetsk in their first two Champions League group stage matches, but they have failed to get on the scoresheet as each one has either been missed or found the hands of the goalkeeper.
This has not been a problem in Serie A, where twenty goals from six matches means that Simone Inzaghi’s team have the most formidable attack in the division.
The Gazzetta highlight the fact that the Nerazzurri have proven that they can carve out goalscoring opportunities even when they are not at their best, as was the case against Shakhtar, but also caution that they must be more clinical and stop passing up good chances or else risk being eliminated from the group stage of the Champions League for the fourth season in succession.
