Inter Milan played against Benevento earlier on today in the Coppa Italia as the nerazzurri ended up winning by a 6-2 score line (Candreva and Lautaro Martinez ended up scoring a brace each). After the game, Inter boss Luciano Spalletti spoke to the Italian press as he talked about the game, here is what he had to say on the matter:
‘ Benevento? I told coach Bucchi after the final whistle that his team did great. Even after we went up 4-0, they kept pushing and pressuring us when other teams would’ve just given up. They gave us difficulties and both clubs deserve praise for this performance. Players who haven’t played much this season like Andrea Ranocchia, Antonio Candreva, Roberto Gagliardini and Daniele Padelli all did well tonight. I was pleased with our effort and I am happy that we progressed.Empty stadium? It wasn’t nice to see that’s for sure. Skriniar? He is a crucial player for us, no one in the world would be able to afford him…’.
