Capello was not thoroughly impressed with Real despite the win, and seemed to imply Inter lost down to their own faults, rather than Real’s brilliance.
“Inter started badly and without determination, in the first half they were always in difficulty. Inter had three defenders against one attacker and in the middle they were inferior,” Capello said after the match.
“In the second half with four defenders I liked Inter more. Against this mediocre Real Madrid, Inter could have done more.”
Capello also spoke about Antonio Conte’s tactics, stating that it might be time for the Inter manager to start changing things up.
“Lukaku was not a driving force and Vidal’s error is not admissible. If the team doesn’t work like this, maybe it’s time to change the tactical system.”
