Legendary former AC Milan, Real Madrid, and England coach Fabio Capello believes that Inter should have won by a bigger margin in their Champions League group stage clash with Viktoria Plzen.

Speaking to Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, the former coach gave the view that the Nerazzurri’s victory was not emphatic enough considering the gap in quality compared to their opponents and the fact that they had a man advantage for half an hour.

Inter got the job done against Plzen, winning 2-0 with the result never looking in too much doubt, although the sense was that they never really got out of second gear or threw the kitchen sink at the Czech champions.

As such, the respectable 2-0 margin of victory was not quite at the same level as Barcelona’s 5-1 demolition of the Czech team on the opening matchday, and Capello feels that the Nerazzurri missed an opportunity to show more against a weak opponent.

“In Plzen, and up a man, they had the opportunity to really punish the opponent, but they waited too long,” Capello argued. “However, the signing of a real leader like Acerbi, as well as the return of Lukaku, should give them a lot.”
