Inter for the third straight time couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net with 24 shots registered against Genoa. Simone Inzaghi after the game said Inter need to show more composure in the final third if they want to start winning games regularly again.


“We didn’t get the rub of the green today,” the coach began. “We could have done better in the opening 20 minutes but after that we got a handle on the pitch, which didn’t help us at all.

“We definitely deserved a goal in the second half but things aren’t going for us at the moment. Clearly we need to do better because had a combined 40 shots against Sassuolo and Genoa and ended up with zero goals.” Inzaghi revealed.

Inter have now gone three games without a win with two back to back losses before the draw against Genoa throwing the hope of retaining the league title into the hands of many. This Inzaghi blamed on mental fatigue.

“There might be a touch of mental fatigue but it’s not a problem of fitness. We covered lots of ground against Sassuolo – more than in other games – but perhaps we’re not running well.”


Genoa coach Alexander Blessin revealed to SkySportItalia his team is “lucky”to get the 0-0 draw against Inter, but admired the mentality to extend their unbeaten run to five rounds.

The German coach is unbeaten on the Grifone bench, but he has now drawn all five of his Serie A matches at the helm.

“As I said before, I believe in my team and we did a really great job for the first 30 minutes, I thought at this moment we could score a goal,” Blessin told Sky Sport Italia.

“After half-time we made changes, there were injuries and the last 20 minutes were just about defending our own goal.

“It was a lucky draw, we showed a strong mentality, but I was really impressed with my team.”
