Inter resumed the Europa League competition with a win over Getafe. Romelu Lukaku and Christian Eriksen scored one goal each for Inter.
Coach Antonio Conte spoke to the press after the match and said:
“They started the game strongly, we got it wrong when moving out from the back and they got few big chances. They were full of running at the beginning. But then we grabbed hold of the game and started to play, creating opportunities in the process.”
“We were expecting a game like this, a real battle.”
“I’m happy with the result because the Europa League is an important competition for us, it provides us with an opportunity to go through knockout ties.”
Conte expressed his appreciation of his striking trio of Lukaku, Martinez, and Sanchez.
“Lukaku scored a great goal with a run in behind. It took him a while to get into the game, but it was a big performance, just like the displays produced by Lautaro and Sanchez, both of whom impressed me.”
Conte also praised Christian Eriksen for his professionalism and ethics of working hard.
“He’s a great lad, he knows that I make choices for the good of Inter. But the fact that he came on raring to go and instantly made it 2-0 is important. He’s getting better and better for us.”
Inter will play the quarter-final on Monday.
