Inter defender Alessandro Bastoni feels that it is a special honour to be able to play in big European matches like tonight’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia before the match, the 22-year-old emphasized that he is glad to take part in a big occasion such as this.

Inter will meet Real at the Bernabeu to decide which of the two sides finishes top of their group, with both having already secured qualification for the knockout rounds.

The Nerazzurri meet one of their greatest continental rivals in a match that will have a great sense of prestige associated with it for many.

Bastoni is grateful to be able to play in such an encounter with big implications in Europe, with the 22-year-old having firmly established himself as a trusted member of the Nerazzurri’s starting eleven over the past three seasons.

He stated that “It is undoubtedly a privilege to play in these matches and in these stadiums. We want to do well because it has been a long time since Inter have won in Madrid, and we want to increase our confidence in ourselves.”

“There will be many things making this match difficult,” he went on, “from the atmosphere to the quality of the players we’re facing.”

He emphasized that Madrid have dangerous attackers even without the injured Karim Benzema, stating that “Even if they do not have Benzema, Real have players of great quality. They still have Vinicius and Rodrygo, we will have to be careful.”
