Inter scored three goals in a victory away at Lazio on Monday evening, putting the nerazzurri into a tie with Napoli for 2nd place in Serie A. Coach Luciano Spalletti commented to Sky Sport after the match and discussed the performance of his team, and several individuals in his selection entered into discussion: "What becomes fundamental is always the performance. Are we the anti-Juve? No, we must be the anti-ourselves. We must be able to control the match as we did in the first half. In the second half we were the anti-nobody or anti-everyone: we had no finish product, we lost too many balls and we allowed them to create problems. They are a strong team, our opponents played well. De Vrij? It's a question of the atmosphere. There was no need to have him whistled by the entire stadium. He is an infinitely mature and sensible lad, if he made a few mistakes he would not be in an optimal condition to play. Borja Valero? At Barcelona he was fundamental, for example. Today we needed to put ourselves in position to win the match. Joao Mario? He played well in the first half, in the second half he got a little tired. The idea was to hand it off to Borja, substituting him when the match started heating up."
