We have been the better side and created 3/4 chances, of which at least one should have been been scored atleast.

Our pass in the final third until 30th minute let us down but from then onwards, we have started creating chances - but those should be turned into goal/s!!

Mkhi has slightly let us down today but hopefully, him along with rest of the players play better in the second half. We are playing a good side, so we should take our chances before its too late.

We’ve been super composed in defense, but such a hard game offensively as expected. Atlético are very well coached, and if there is a cryptonite for us it is a well coached team which counters our strengths.

On a side note, has Sommer been a spectator as usual? I don't recall him having to make an actual save. If yes, then we're doing great at containing them.

All team is nervous, hasty, careless and maybe scared! no body except Thuram can drible so we are so predictible and always want to pass!
as always we can't finish our chances.
they should focus and focus and try to be calm

Inter looks stronger offensively than I expected. In terms of quality of chances Inter is overrunning them on the break in particular, you can see the advantage when Atleti's defense is not set. It is a good sign but Atleti will probably adjust by turtling more in the second half with a lower back line and conceding possession.

I hate playing La Liga teams in CL. They are always so infuriatingly sound. Here's hoping the boys can get this done.

We need to score early in the second half and then catch hem on counters.

Atletico didn't come here to attack. Just patiently waiting for a mistake of our end.

Let's hope Sommer can be a spectator entire evening

Miki and Darmian have been fine in the last 25 mins, and I can’t see Hakan having two bad halves in a row.

My only concerns are the energy we’ve spent and Thuram’s injury.

Darmian is finished and he should've not played specially as rwb. considering the players we have, reaching this far is kinda miracle!

With all the respect, that was a pretty shity half imo, very bad passes and weakass shots and fact that mhiki and Hakan are so off not helping...
With all due respect, we are showing that we are better than them. This is winnable, we can win both matches

Darmian never brings anything on offense. He was done as a RWB 2 years ago. If Dumfries is healthy he needs to play.

Atleti had one chance that ultimately ended with Lino putting a shot from the top of the box wide and that's about it for their chance creation.

Is Thuram really done for today?

Ofc it's a winnable, I didn't said anything but facts, our passes and shots so far are very lacking....

Dumfries has been solid lately, would be nice if he can bring an impact in the second half.

But it's crucial that both Hakan and Mkhi bounce back.
