Legendary former Inter midfielder Esteban Cambiasso believes that the Nerazzurri should have taken advantage of chances in the first half of yesterday’s Champions League group stage draw against Shakhtar Donetsk.
Speaking about the match while commentating on the game between PSG and Manchester City for Sky Sport Italia, the Argentine gave his thoughts on the Nerazzurri’s earlier match.
Inter were only able to come away with a point after a hard-fought match against Shakhtar in Ukraine, with neither side able to find the back of the net from relatively few good goalscoring chances.
The Nerazzurri looked to be at their most dangerous during the first half of the match, but in the end failed to be clinical and swing the match in their favour, as the encounter drifted towards a goalless draw.
Cambiasso believes that his former club could have done better to score when they had the chance, but that the result is still a decent one against tough opposition.
“From what I saw, the first chances they had in the first half up until Nicolo Barella hit the crossbar had to be realized. There they had the chance to score,” he said.
“But Shakhtar is a dangerous team with the ball,” he went on, “the coach said so, and we knew the problems they could create. I think they lacked greater incisiveness, then the Ukrainians grew in confidence.”
