Italian journalist Maurizio Compagnoni has said that Inter got scared when Dries Mertens made it 3-2 late in the match against Napoli on Sunday evening, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.

Speaking on Sky Sport following the match, via FCInter1908, Maurizio Compagnoni said that at 3-1 the game seemed over but the Dries Mertens strike caused Inter to panic.

“Napoli sat down a bit in the first half. Many sides of the same match. At 3-1, it seemed over, then Mertens’ strike reopened the game and Inter got scared.”

Inter fell behind early on thanks to an excellent strike from Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski. The Nerazzurri hit back with a Hakan Calhanogly penalty soon after.

By half time it was 2-1 to Inter because Ivan Perisic had headed in a corner from Hakan Calhanogluthat only just crept over the line.

It was made 3-1 after an excellent goal from Lautaro Martinez but with 10 minutes of the 90 to play, Dries Mertens made it 3-2.

Inter then conceded a number of clear cut chances as they struggled to keep their composure in the defence.
