Figures show that Simone Inzaghi is more adept at guiding Inter through cup competitions than he is in the Serie A campaign, according to a report in the Italian print media today.
As has been reported by Tuttosport, Inter have been averaging 1.66 points per game in Serie A under Simone Inzaghi but in the Champions League, they average 1.75 points per game.
It should be remembered that statistically tougher teams are faced in the Champions League too.
Simone Inzaghi as a coach is now very close to securing his third consecutive qualification to the Round of 16 in the Champions League.
He did it with Lazio first and then could soon get his second crack at it with Inter should the Nerazzurri beat Viktoria Plzen in the penultimate group game.
The major performances of Simone Inzaghi’s time seem to have come in the Champions League and he won the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa with the Nerazzurri last season.
