Jose Mourinho’s side may have lost the biggest chance they had in their two-log Champions League clash when they drew 0-0 with Manchester United earlier this week. But even with his Inter side facing the reality of a do-or-die match at Old Trafford, Mourinho fully believes his club can get the result the need to progress.
“A score draw will send us through and so our aim is to get a goal as early as we can at Old Trafford.
“If we can do that, and I’m sure we can, then we will have a fantastic chance to knock United out of the competition. We have a 50 per cent chance of going through to the next round.
“On the one hand, 0-0 is a difficult result for us because it means we can’t lose at Old Trafford if we want to go through. But it’s a difficult result for them because all we need is to score and make sure we draw. If we score, United have to win. (Daily Telegraph)
Inter may be one of the most underachieving clubs in Europe when it comes to the Champions League. Their fantastic league form seems to fade away the second their feet touch the pitch, and most of the time, the club ends up playing scared. They look nothing like Mourinho’s Chelsea squad that used to thrive on big European matches. So who’s to say that they won’t get steamrolled by the United Express?
Whilst we do have to wait for the actual match to be player, is anyone really giving Inter a chance against United in their second-leg encounter?
