Guys ffs, these guys are more pissed than us for the draw. They could have gotten Sporting, Salzburg, Shakhtar, Napoli or Benfica (or Leverkusen/Dortmund for Barcelona) and ended up with us.

Sure, it's the worst possible group, but we're the ones making it so...
Yeah, but it was by far the best group after two rounds of the draw. None other group had Bayern-Barcelona level teams from pots 1 and 2.

Obviously, we got the short end of the stick but it's short on the other side as well. It's not like we're Conpehagen or Maccabi Haifa here...

This is the result of bottling Scudetto and ending up in 3rd pot... I hope the players learn from this and bring home 2nd star at the end of this season.

We`re not equipped to go very far in UCL anyway but at least we`re going to see some valuable encounters with top teams (worth attending).

Players will gain the best experience from matches this (unlike drawing against fucking PSV), which is considerable now that we have a stable core of players.

MD1

VP v Inter 3 pts to Inter
Barca v Bayern 3 points to Bayern

MD2

Inter v Barca 3 pts to Inter
Bayern v VP 3 pts to Bayern

MD3

Bayern v Inter 3 pts to Bayern
Barca v VP 3 pts to Barca

MD4

Inter v Bayern 1 pt each
VP v Barca 3 pts to Barca

MD5

Barca v Inter 3 pts to Barca
VP v Bayern 3 pts to Bayern

MD6

Inter v VP 3 pts to Inter
Bayern v Barca 3 pts to Bayern

Bayern 16 pts
Inter 10 pts
Barca 9 pts
VP 0 pts (sorry)

I'm agnostic, but, we pray :ROFLMAO:

These games are always good just to see how our core players are overrated in this forum :D

Every year it's the same shit. People go "Real/Barcelona aren't as strong this year, we have a good chance" and then we always take it up the ass. We were lucky last year that Shakhtar was a joke. And here's a hot take for you: we were saved by the fact that UEFA changed the order of the match days so that the 1st match was repeated on the 6th and not the 5th round, because if we went into the final day requiring a win at home against Shakhtar to advance, we would have choked like we did every other time.

If Lukaku is the player you all think he is, we are topping the group.
Still think we can pull it off with him being his usual self.
If he is the player he was for last few months with Conte. Only time he looked like WC striker. But unlikely to happen.

I seem to recall in 2019-'20 where we had a 67% chance of avoiding the Barcelona/Dortmund group, and we ended up there. This year, entering the third round, we had a 75% chance of avoiding Bayern/Barcelona...we just can't catch a break.

This is the result of extremely bad luck. There were lots of groups and we ended up to the worst ones (for us, and everyone in pot 3).

Players don't really care about the groups and the pots when they fight for the Scudetto. That's just ridiculous, you are implying as if they didn't try enough last season.

Unlucky. Was hoping to play Plzen after the derby. At least it's at Meazza.

If he is clever(he's not) he should rest best players cause we will lose these games against Bayern also if we play with full squad . Get some points against Plzen to get some cash. Top 4 in seria a is priority.

He won’t. The odds are against us, but there is a change we make it out of the groupstage. There is a lot of money at stake, and imo players at a club as Inter must be able to deliver 2 times a week. We also have a ‘better’ bench than last season, so we should be able to rotate 2/3 names.
