Its not over yet. I have seen too many return legs end up in shit.

As long as we do the business in Madrid, im happy.

At the end of the day, Atletico will need to come to play and that can only mean good things if we can take our chances in Madrid. Hopefully Hakan, Dimarco get some form, and Thuram

We won the game but we lost Thuram. With Assman upfront we gonna lose easy those 10+ pts advantage in scudetto race.
No way. Midfield is still the best in league and defense is top notch. If we were to lose this lead it wouldn't be because of Thurman gone

They sat back the entire time before going 1-0 then it was plain to see how dangerous they can be. I would have put Alexis instead of Arnautovic (missed a couple of clear chances) for the pace on the counter. It's going to be a really hard return leg. We're not a one or two man team for Thuram to be such a big impact if he doesn't play but we'll miss him.

I don't think Alexis can provide much pace for anything in 2024. If anything, he tends to slow down the ball in transition cause he holds on to it longer than he should. He still has a good work rate, though, but so does Arna.

After maturing the game i would say Spanish media starts talking about Inter being much better than Atletico but wasted clear chances, so they think Atletico got really lucky.

Also Barca fans were watching Inter - Atletico and said that we are clearly a top3 team in CL even tho Lautaro wasn't on and Calhanoglu wasn't on.

Usually they hate Inter, but they loved what they saw yesterday

Right next with City when it comes to style and attractiveness of play. Definitely the most attacking Inter since I remember.

All those who say we should ignore UCL and focus just on scudetto should just listen to these comments, and realize we have everything to finish both competitions.

We are the end of the Darmian-Acerbi-Mkhitaryan cycle. This year or the next are the last seasons for them to win CL, so we are going to try

On the other hand, this is the dawn of the Sanchez-Arnautovic-Klaassen cycle.

Dumfries sub is impactful, his directness causes a lot of troubles for them, same as Frattesi, the one stole ball and passed to Lautaro.

Key point of this match is forcing Griezmann moving so far and overlapped with De Paul.

Forget about Griezman injury, he will be 100% avaliable in the return leg along with Morata.


bTW we are favs in the return game in my bet site ratings: atletico win 2.75. draw 3.18. Inter win 2.72.
We are going to murder them on the counter.
