Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi feels that scoring in tomorrow’s Coppa Italia semi-final first leg against AC Milan could be especially important as it would count as an “away goal” for the team.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset ahead of the match, the coach emphasized how since the match is classified as a home game for Milan for the purpose of the tie, a Nerazzurri goal could be decisive.

Inter have gone 313 minutes across all competitions without scoring, and they will see tomorrow’s match as a perfect opportunity to announce their return to form in front of goal.

Both legs of the tie will be played at the San Siro, but the away goals rule will still be in effect for the two-legged contest, meaning that any goals the Nerazzurri score could be decisive in the event that the score is level at the end of the second leg.

Ultimately, the team must simply do everything they can in attack across the two legs, but at this level of competition the margins can be very fine.

“It will be a battle where both sides will try to prevail,” Inzaghi said, “but also a game where mentality and motivation will make the difference.”

“Milan will be a beautiful showpiece occasion,” he went on, “but our focus must clearly be on the pitch and our performance.”

“It’s normal that scoring an ‘away goal’ would be very important for us,” the coach added.

Inzaghi concluded that “We have to play match after match trying to recover physical and mental energy, without thinking about what comes after the match, for me this is the only way for us to reach our objectives.”
