Inter manager Simone Inzaghi complimented his side after they defeated Roma 3-1 this evening at the San Siro, putting an end to the capital club’s unbeaten run in Serie A.

The Nerazzurri overwhelmed the Giallorossi, scoring twice in the first half before Lautaro Martinez added a third early in the second half—putting them within reaching distance of a second consecutive Scudetto.

“We had a strong opponent who came into tonight riding high and our guys did well to put in another good performance after Derby in midweek,” Inzaghi said to DAZN.

“We’re in a very intense period where we qualified for a Coppa Italia final and have several pivotal league fixtures.”

He added, “With such a packed calendar, we must do well at managing both our physical and mental energies.”

“Tonight was a good starting point. Roma are having a good season, we knew their central defenders would be aggressive with our strikers so we tried to exploit the depth.”

“Mourinho and I chatted a bit at full-time and wished each other luck for the rest of the season. He’s a special manager.”
