Inter is a top 4 team along with City, Real and PSG. Sure, we can lose to Atletico if they manage to break a few more of our players, but we don’t have to prove anyone that we are top team.

In that case Atletico should be top 4 team. They prove it on the field.

While we are in only coz of Inter fans opinion

As far as Atletico, O chances were created and the score easily could have been 3:0.

Sexier football =/= better team. If they knock us out it means they are stronger than us over two legs. Objectively.

Defense is the other side of the coin.

If I claim Barca 2010 > Inter ppl here would hang me up :D

They managed to beat Sociedad and we sort of struggled against them.
They sort of struggled with their group stage this year too. And comparing teams by comparing results against a third team isn't the most sophisticated way of analyzing football clubs btw.

I love your sophisticated approach. Very nuanced! Sort off...

They prove what? :lol:

We dominated them by far in the first leg. If it wasn't for our own incompetence in front of their goal, this tie would've been over by now. But then again, we are likely to even win in their own pitch. They will change approach, as I expect them to open up and try to break us, in which we could take advantage of their vulnerability at their back, so maybe we could hit them.

But even if we do get knocked out, we still remain a better team. You know, this is not a football manager game, the best team doesn't always win. Football is all about timing, unexpected events and miracle moments.

Inter has been consistent, competitive and entertaining to watch so far. We are likely to win the league and we have played a great football and won in the first leg of knock-out phase. You never know what's gonna happen in the future, but one poor match or a miracle event can't discredit the incredible things that Inter has done so far.

You totally missed the point. Read again the first three words pls. Why "First leg" only?

If they knock us out it means they will win us two goals at their home. Or they are mentally better than us on the spots. Either case they are better, no ifs and buts here.

Yeah I am an objective person. I trust only what will be written in the record. Prove it by result if we are that strong. Calling a 1/16 loser a top4 team that year is fanism delusional bullshit.

That's what YOU think, not how football works pal. If something, I have always been realistic to situation, whether it was on poor coaching, poor team form or vice versa. Being negative is another thing, and I'm not gonna bother explaining. You do your thing. Inter remains one of the best teams in Europe even if we get knocked out in the second leg.

Anything can happen, a day off by the group, an injury on a key player that might ruin entire concept of the game, or even an early red card, literally shit is unpredictable that makes football beautifuil and entertaining. If it was all about records and stats, we would know the winner ahead of kickoff.

It was how Barca fans blamed the volcano (lol) and Milito offside goal. Or "Inter reach final coz fortunate draws" last year. You do admit "If it wasn't for our own incompetence in front of their goal". Was that ATM fault?

Football works? UEFA was pouring prize money based on each round pass. Not "how many chances one created per match". It was only you who judge based on your feeling.

Yeah I am not saying Inter is not one of the strongest. But I do not claim it now. Wait until quarter then we are 1 of the 8. Or semi then we are one of the 4. That's how it is.

I love how we defend Inter in our forum for being average and not elite:)
