Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi feels that the team didn’t quite do enough to get service to forwards Lautaro Martinez and Joaquin Correa in their 2-0 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.

Speaking in a press conference after the match, as reported by FCInterNews, the coach stressed that if the forward players struggled at times, it was partly because the ball wasn’t being played to them with enough frequency or quality.

Inter had a few bright moments against Bayern, but neither Martinez nor Correa could really impact the match apart from a good chance that the former missed to open the scoring.

Inzaghi was quick to defend the strike pair, however, noting that the attack is the responsibility of the entire team and that the team as a whole needed to have done more to get Martinez and Correa into the match.

“We didn’t do enough to find the forwards in the first half,” the coach said, “Tucu and Lauti gave us as much help as they could, and then Dzeko and Carboni came in and helped us because the gaps started to appear and Bayern have some players with great pace.”

Asked if he feels the Nerazzurri’s performance showed progress, Inzaghi replied that “Absolutely, yes, we got off to a good start, there was the Barella shot that wasn’t given as a penalty, and then Lautaro’s chance.”

“In the few moments where we switched off we conceded, but I got great responses even from the players who don’t play regularly.”

“I’m satisfied with the match we played and with qualification,” Inzaghi said, “we came here to Munich and played a serious and organized match.”

Asked if he wondered what the match would have been liked if the teams had had anything to play for, the coach responded that “In this group we’ve shown that the gap has been reduced between us and the top teams, particularly looking at the two matches against Barcelona.”

“The Catalans are one of the strongest teams in Europe along with Bayern, and we’ve always been competitive in these matches,” he added.

“The difference has just been made by the details.”
