Inter Had The Best Chances To Win In Champions League Draw With Shakhtar Donetsk, Italian Media Argue

Inter created a number of presentable opportunities to score and take all three points in yesterday’s Champions League group stage draw against Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine despite having had less possession.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who argue that the Nerazzurri had five good opportunities from which to score but that they were too wasteful in front of goal to swing the match in their favour.

The Nerazzurri did not look to play as open a style of football as has been seen from them in recent Serie A, in which they have piled scoring chances on and found the back of the net more than any other Italian team.

Instead, the encounter with Shakhtar looked to be a hard-fought one, with both sides failing to find the back of the net from relatively few chances.

However, the Nerazzurri did have several moments where they could have scored a crucial opening goal, with the Gazzetta highlighting five in particular.

Both strikers Lautaro Martinez and Edin Dzeko missed good chances, with the Bosnian’s from point-blank range looking a particularly bad miss.

Meanwhile, Nicolo Barella struck the crossbar with a powerful shot following one of the team’s most flowing attacking moves, and Shakhtar keeper Andriy Pyatov was twice called into action late on, making excellent stops from a long-range Joaquin Correa effort and a Stefan de Vrij header.
