MILAN - A second win from behind for Inter in the league who beat Hellas Verona 2-1 on matchday 12 in Serie A.
It was a deserved win for the Nerazzurri who attacked for 95 minutes and who were able to come back in the second half thanks to Vecino’s header and Barella’s incredible goal after Verre opened the scoring in the first half. “Our only aim is to get out of situations stronger,’ said Antonio Conte after the whistle. “The match started in a difficult way against a side who defend man-on-man and it was the ideal situation for them but we did very, very well. We didn’t lose our patience and we showed maturity and significant desire to win.”
“Credit to these guys, I thank them especially because they put so much heart into it despite the disappointment of what happened in Dortmund. Winning a game in that fashion shows that the foundations are there and we have to keep working because we have lots of guys who can only get better. Even when things go wrong, we make the most of it because it’s an opportunity to continue with our journey and improve all together. Our fans deserved this win.”
“We’re happy because 31 points from 12 games is a good total and it was difficult to expect that but credit to these guys who are working hard. Let’s not forget that today was our seventh game in 20 days. Congratulations to the guys. I want to the dedicate the win to my daughter Vittoria who turns 12 today. This win must bring enthusiasm and improve our morale while showing that we’re on the right road.”
Finally, a comment on Alessandro Bastoni: “It was really important what he did in the second half because they were man-marking and he stepped up to be an extra midfielder. He played a big role in the goal to make it 1-1 and went close to scoring himself.”
