BELGRADE – File away the league victory against Juventus and focus on the
Europe League. This is the only plan that Andrea Stramaccioni and Inter have on
their minds on the eve of tomorrow evening’s match against Partizan Belgrade.
"Our heads aren’t spinning after the win against the Bianconeri. Obviously
Saturday’s victory gave us confidence. It was an important test for my team,
but I had said it before the game and it’s what I think now: we’ve only played 11 matches and all it takes is one or two bad results for us to find
ourselves back where we were before. So we’re keeping our feet on the ground
because we still haven’t done anything yet, and we’re thinking about advancing
from our group in the Europa League."
"Inter have to learn how to win gracefully," said Juventus
assistant coach Angelo Alessio yesterday: "The response on Inter’s part is
that we spoke quite a bit about Saturday’s game during the post-match. Alessio
can say what he likes, but the only thing I want the Nerazzurri to have on
their minds is the Partizan match. I believe our little secret, the one that’s
been with us so far, is having faced every match with great commitment. I’m not
interested in talking about the past; right now it’s all about Partizan."
