According to Julian Nagelsmann Inter are among the favorites for UCL this season. The Bayern manager considers Inter Milan as one of the clubs that can go all the way to win this competition. The Nerazzurri have turned their season after a win against Barcelona at the San Siro and managed to get out of the group of death. Julian Nagelsmann feels that if Inter can qualify for the knockout stages from this group, then they should be considered one of the favorites.
Simone Inzaghi has done well in the Champions League as he has brought Inter to the knockout stages in the Champions League twice. The Nerazzurri were struggling in this competition since 2010-11, but they are now back among the top clubs. With many big clubs going down to Europa, Inter have achieved a great milestone. But it will be even harder for Inter to go to the next stage.
Inter among favorites for UCL according to Julian Nagelsmann
Nagelsmann said that Inter are not perfect, but they are a tough team to play against. The Nerazzurri lost 2-0 in both games against Bayern but had a better game in Allianz Arena. A decision went against Inter during the start otherwise the game could have been different. The Nerazzurri should go with the tactics that they used against Barcelona in the knockout stages. With a low block and compact shape in defense Inter can stop many teams from scoring goals. Also, the Nerazzurri can focus on transition play by using the pace of Dumfries and Lautaro.
Inter can face some big teams in the Round of 16, and the draw will take place on November 7. They can face teams like Benfica, Chelsea, Man City, Real Madrid, Porto, and Tottenham. So Inter will have to play well and be consistent in both legs against these top sides.
