Inter defender Milan Skriniar feels that he and his teammates paid for their missed opportunities in their 2-0 Champions League defeat against Real Madrid.

Speaking to InterTV after the match, the 26-year-old emphasized that the Nerazzurri could only blame themselves for not being able to make more of the chances to score that they created at the Bernabeu.

As they had done when they hosted Real at the San Siro in September, Inter played aggressively from the first whistle, probing for an opening goal in a match where they knew that a point would not be enough for them.

Once again as with the reverse fixture, the Nerazzurri created a number of dangerous situations and had a number of attempts on goal, but on each occasion they were either blocked, saved, or off target.

Real on the other hand were clinical with the chances that came their way, while a second half red card for Nicolo Barella made certain that there was no way back into the game for Inter on a disappointing evening.

“You pay for it when you don’t take your chances,” Skriniar stated. “We needed more cynicism especially in the first half hour when we created a couple of good chances to score.”

“Against these teams you have to score,” he reflected. “Reaching the knockouts is important, I’m proud of this team because we came here to play for the first place having already done so.”

“Now we head back to the league,” he concluded, “we must continue to be consistent with out results and performances.”

“We must rest now of course,” he said, “recover our strength and prepare ourselves as best we can for the final push before Christmas.”
