Reporting to Inter TV, after Neroazzurri underwhelming 1-1 home tie against Juventus, Serie A defending champions centre-back Stefan De Vrij stated:
"We’re so disappointed about the result. We were so close to victory, but we’re pleased with our performance. We played our game. We’d worked so hard in the week on our defensive marking in particular, as we’d let teams have too many counter-attacks against us in recent fixtures. We did better in that regard and gave very little away. That’s what’s disappointing because when you’re ahead in the 80th minute, you have to see it through.
Juventus penalty kick? I was pretty close to the incident and I didn’t think there was anything in it, but the referee went to the VAR screen, and greenlighted it. We’re now focused on Empoli. It’s key for us to win”.
