Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi wants to make sure the team do not put out a bad performance against Bayern Munich this evening so as to not disrupt morale and momentum.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, who report that the coach is still aiming for a strong display by his team despite the fact that the result of this evening’s Champions League match will not affect the outcome of the group.

On paper, neither Inter nor Bayern have much to play for in this evening’s match.

The Nerazzurri are mathematically guaranteed to qualify for the knockout stage second in the group, whilst Bayern are assured of top spot.

However, Inzaghi wants his team to show that they are taking the match seriously.

There is a delicate balance to the positive run of form that the Nerazzurri have put together through October to get their season on track after a bad start.

Accordingly, the coach would be worried that a heavy defeat or an unconvincing performance against the Bavarians could bring this form to a grinding halt.

Inzaghi’s priority is that the team on the pitch put in the kind of display that keeps all the positivity they’ve built over the past weeks moving in the right direction.
