Inter coach Simone Inzaghi was rueful following the Nerazzuri’s 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich: ‘We made too many mistakes’. The German champions were the dominant side and capitalised on their chances, leaving the coach in a philosophical mood post game:
In the first twenty minutes we went into a lot of tackles against an intense, extraordinary team, one of the strongest in Europe. After the opening goal, where we had to do better as a team by reacting quicker to Kimmich’s ball in, we created many chances but lacked the final ball technically.
Then we brought pressure and had the opportunities to get back in the match. Of course you have to play the perfect match against opponents like this, there was no match between us, but we were up against an absolutely top-class team.
We had to cover the ball because there were two players next to Kimmich. Then San scores a great goal after bringing the ball. We had to do better, we had to be perfect and we weren’t.
Too many mistakes? Absolutely, yes, in the derby we made mistakes that saw us concede the second and third goals which were easily avoidable.
Tonight I don’t remember too many great saves from Onana but we had to be better at reading the game because they had players who know how to create danger from any situation.
We didn’t need to concede the goal for 2-0 because at that point the match was open, there were spaces opening up to get to their penalty area but they defended well.
