Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi feels that his team had some good chances to open up the scoring in their Champions League group stage loss to Bayern Munich this evening before they ultimately conceded.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset after the match, the coach noted that his team had some good chances before the Bavarians broke through.

Inter will have rued their early misses when Bayern defender Benjamin Pavard headed home from a corner late in the first half of this evening’s match in Munich.

The Nerazzurri had enjoyed some positive spells throughout the half, but never managed to turn them into a goal.

A good chance that was passed up by striker Lautaro Martinez and a Nicolo Barella shot from range which was blocked by an arm from Bayern forward Sadio Mane but controversially not given as a penalty were among the moments where the Nerazzurri will feel they missed their opportunity.

Inzaghi began by stressing that “We’ve managed to progress from a very high quality group and that’s something that gives us a lot of satisfaction.”

“We had a good match against a very strong team,” the coach said of this evening’s match, “we could have opened the scoring quickly through Lautaro, and then there’s the Barella shot that wasn’t given as a penalty.”

“We conceded a goal due to switching off,” he said of the Bavarians’ opener, “but we tried to stay in the game by playing, overall, quite a good match.”

“Tonight I managed to rotate several players, everyone did their part and I’m happy,” the coach said.

Inzaghi then looked ahead to this weekend’s Serie A clash away to Juventus, noting that “On Sunday we certainly have a difficult match and we want to finish up before the break in the best way possible.”

And of the injury to striker Romelu Lukaku, he said that “I’m sorry to see it, he’s a very important player for us, there were positive signs of recovery but then he’s had this setback.”

“He’ll certainly give us something extra when he’s back,” the coach added of Lukaku.
