Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi feels that the team are preparing well for their match against Atalanta on Sunday and are aware of how massively important the result of it will be.

Speaking in a press conference after the Nerazzurri’s 6-1 defeat of Bologna, as reported by FCInterNews, the coach already looked ahead to the team’s final match before the World Cup break, a fixture that feels virtually must-win in the context of the team’s season.

Inter managed to bounce back from their defeat at the hands of Juventus over the weekend in about as convincing of fashion as they possibly could have.

The Nerazzurri hardly started their clash with the Rossoblu in the way that they would have hoped.

However, the memory of the unfortunate early goal was quickly swept aside as Inzaghi’s men thoroughly outclassed Bologna to get back to winning ways.

In and of itself, this was hardly enough to make up for a start to the season that has seen the Nerazzurri win five out of their opening thirteen matches in the league.

Of the fact that the Nerazzurri have yet to win any head-to-head matches against direct rivals in the league, Inzaghi said that “We’re analyzing that, it’s not easy to understand, we know that those matches have all been away from home apart from Roma.”

“We’ve been unable to get the better of some key moments but that’s football, no ifs or buts.”

The coach noted that “Now we’re bunched together with a number of teams fighting for places, apart from Napoli, and then on Sunday we already face another team who are having a great season.”

Of the match against Bologna, he said that “In the first quarter of an hour both teams were not at their best, we made errors in technique that are unusual for us.”

“But at the end of the day I saw a great reaction to the loss in Turin, which hurt us a lot.”

“At 1-0 down we didn’t come apart, we stuck to our task knowing that we could get the match back to where we wanted it,” he added.

Inzaghi argued that Inter need to find “The consistency that everyone is missing, except for Napoli.”

“We’re not looking at the table right now, we just need to improve in those big head-to-head matches which is where we’re being punished right now.”

And of Sunday’s trip to Bergamo to face Atalanta, the coach said that “We know what the consequences of a loss would be, we have to play well and be focused against an Atalanta team who are having a great season.”

“Now we prepare for our third match in a week, and we go on from a win that we had been desperate for.”
