Inter wingback Matteo Darmian feels that the Nerazzurri showed their quality and unity in yesterday’s Champions League loss to Bayern Munich than they had in the previous meeting with the Bavarians.

Speaking to InterTV after the match, the 32-year-old compared yesterday’s match against the German champions to the reverse fixture against the same opposition.

Inter were not able to get a better result against Bayern than they had done the first time around.

As with the match at the San Siro a couple months ago, the Germans won the match 2-0.

However, the feeling of the two matches was hardly identical, particularly given everything that had taken place in between.

Inter approached their first meeting with Bayern at a low point in their season, whilst in the ensuing two months they’d already secured qualification for the knockouts and also gotten back on their feet in Serie A.

The Nerazzurri showed their confidence against the Bavarians, even if they couldn’t get a result.

“We interpreted the match in the best way possible from the start,” Darmian said, “we put in a good performance and they managed to break through during our best spell.”

“We have very good attackers who will certainly score goals when it matters most,” the 32-year-old continued, “today was a test for us and we wanted to play well even though we’d already secured qualification, unfortunately we couldn’t find a goal.”

“Today we interpreted the match better than we had during the first meeting, we’re more of a team now and it shows on the pitch,” Darmian concluded.
