Inter Defender Milan Skriniar: “We Must Win Against Sheriff If We Want To Progress In Champions League”

Inter defender Milan Skriniar knows how important a win against Sheriff Tiraspol in the Champions League tomorrow is, with the Nerazzurri still seeking their first win in the competition.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, the Slovak defender acknowledged that a win against the Moldovan side is the only result that wouldn’t leave his team in a difficult spot concerning their hopes of qualifying for the knockout rounds of Europe’s top competition.

As with the past few seasons, the Nerazzurri have not been able to find their best form in the Champions League, with their first two matches of the group stage in this year’s edition of the competition having yielded only one point.

The group stage is still far from over, but the lack of a win so far means that only getting three points from tomorrow’s clash with Sheriff would put Inter in a strong position with half of the group stage matches gone.

“We need concentration at the back and bite in attack,” Skriniar stated, “where we have to be decisive tomorrow.”

He reflected that “Last year we were conceding a lot of goals in this period too, then we shut the door and it went well. Now we are attacking more and sometimes we leave spaces, but this must not happen. We have to concede fewer goals.”

“Tomorrow only the result counts, if we want to continue in the Champions League we have to force a win,” he went on.

He closed, “In our two games in the Champions League we have created a lot, I think the team is ready. There is a desire to play a good game, we have to go there and win.”
