Once Again Inter Failed On 4-3-3 Formations...

Tonight Inter lost their second Champions League match in succession, going down 2-1 away to Werder Bremen after losing 1-0 at home against Panathinaikos. This means the Greek side win Group B, with Inter following in second place.

Inter Deserve To Meet One Of The Strongest Teams Now - Mourinho

Following the game, coach Jose Mourinho looked disappointed but felt the defeat should not be taken too seriously as the Nerazzurri were not playing in their best formation.

"This defeat is not a reference point, we didn't play with our best team and we deserve to face one of the strongest teams of the draw," he said. "We've put ourselves in this situation. In Serie A we are much more concentrated and strong.

"Werder put us in difficulty high dead ball situations with a very high pressing game. An example is the first goal, with Maxwell coming late on [Claudio] Pizarro. I was not surprised he made the decisive mistake, as he did not look concentrated in the second half.

"[Amantino] Mancini and [Ricardo] Quaresma aren't at their best but they did their part. Perhaps if Quaresma had scored early on with that quickly-taken free kick, things would have gone differently."

Tonight Inter reverted to the coach's preferred 4-3-3 formation, but he admits the 4-4-2 works better for the team at the moment.

"Right now we are more comfortable playing with a 4-4-2, because it gives us more strength physically, tactically, and psychologically."

As group runners-up, Inter could now meet the likes of Barcelona, Liverpool, and Manchester United in the last 16.
