UEFA Champions League UCL: Inzaghi Targets Last Season Feat Ahead Of Athletic Madrid Game

As Inter Milan gets ready for its matchup with Atletico Madrid at the San Siro on Tuesday, Simone Inzaghi is hoping for a repeat of the team’s trip to the Champions League final from the previous season.

Despite losing to Manchester City in the June final in Istanbul, Inter has recovered to enjoy an incredible season, winning the Italian Super Cup and leading Serie A by nine points.

With nearly their whole roster available for what could be an exciting matchup against fourth-place Atletico Madrid in La Liga, the three-time European winners have won every game since the year’s beginning.

“We experienced some magical nights last season with the club and our fantastic fans.

We’d like to do it again but we know that there are great teams out there who have the same ambition as we do,” said Inzaghi.

“It’s going to be a very tough tie but we’re going into it with a great desire… We know it will be a great atmosphere and we’ll need to be at our best.”

After an inconsistent season in which they suffered 12 losses in Serie A, Inter emerged as a surprise finalist when they almost closed a significant resource gap with ultra-wealthy City.

However, their haughty performances this season imply that another long run would come with far less surprise.

It’s the logical consequence of what the team is doing on the pitch,” said Inzaghi.

“But we need to remain concentrated as we have in the first six months of the season. We’ll see what happens from there.”

Inzaghi will go on Diego Simeone of Atletico Madrid, a former teammate from Lazio with whom he shared the Italian double 24 years ago.

Inter supporters also hold special memories of Simeone because he won the 1998 Uefa Cup with a team that included the legendary Ronaldo of Brazil.

“It will be a pleasure to have Diego as my opponent.

He was a brilliant teammate because we won with Lazio and after he went back to Atletico to finish his career in Spain we’ve always stayed in touch,” said Inzaghi.

“It was clear he was going to become a great coach… He’s won a lot there and watching them this year is a pleasure because they play great football.”
