Inter coach Simone Inzaghi voiced his concern at his side’s profligacy in front of goal as they struggled to a goalless draw against Genoa in Serie A yesterday.

The Nerazzurri saw plenty of attacking opportunities but could not break through at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, and they have scored just a single goal in their last four games in all competitions.

Speaking to Italian television broadcaster DAZN following the match, and as reported by, the former Lazio coach admitted to being worried by his side’s inability to find the back of the net.

“I think a single moment was missing. We could have approached the first 20 minutes better, we gave Genoa a chance, but then we took measures on the pitch where it was very difficult to play,” Inzaghi claimed.

“In the second half, we deserved the goal for how much we created. Every episode at the moment is not in our favour, but we have to do more because between Sassuolo and Genoa we had 40 shots without scoring. We are still the best attack, but we have to do more.”

Nerazzurri striker Edin Dzeko suggested that mental fatigue could be a factor in the team’s inability to find their attacking form, and Inzaghi admitted that recent travel and high-energy games could have played a part.

“There may be mental fatigue because travel accumulates. Against Sassuolo we ran more than them but we ran badly. The team is physically well, probably mental fatigue accumulates but we have to continue. We haven’t won in four games, we aren’t used to this so we must analyse and evaluate,” Inzaghi added.

Inter turn their attention to the Coppa Italia semi-final and a clash against rivals AC Milan on Tuesday.
