Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi rues his team’s missed scoring opportunities following the heartbreaking Champions League elimination at the hands of Atletico Madrid.

The Nerazzurri traveled to the Spanish capital with a slim advantage from the first leg at San Siro.

Federico Dimarco made it 2-0 on aggregate by scoring with his weaker right foot in the 33rd minute.

However, Antoine Griezmann responded immediately to restore his team’s hopes. In the 83rd minute, Memphis Depay forced extra time after snatching an equalizer.

While both sides had their chances, we eventually resorted to penalty shootouts to settle the tie. The Spaniards emerged victorious with one attempt to spare.

For his part, Inzaghi felt that his team could have prevailed had his players made the most of their chances.

Nevertheless, he urges the Nerazzurri to hold their heads high and remain proud of what they achieved thus far this season.

“There is great disappointment following elimination,” admits Inzaghi in his post-match interview via FcInterNews.

“It is normal that the draw immediately penalized us. But I told the boys they must be proud of their achievements.

“Being Disappointed is normal as we wanted to move forward. We must also congratulate Atletico who never gave up and were in the game until the very end.

“We must also take into account that the opponent is of absolute value.”

The 47-year-old noted improvement in extra time, but still felt that the players should have been a bit more sadistic.

“We had to be more cynical. We did better in extra time, but we should have made better use of our opportunities.”

The Nerazzurri will now turn their attention to Serie A as they resume their march towards the Scudetto title.
