Palacio now focused on Serie A

Rodrigo Palacio is delighted that Inter can now turn their thoughts to Serie A after ensuring Europa League qualification on Thursday.

The Nerazzurri booked their place in the last 32 thanks to a 3-1 win at Partizan Belgrade – which was their tenth straight win and their tenth straight away victory.

“I came on in the second half to help the team and I'm pleased I was able to do my bit,” said the scorer of a brace.

“They were three important points and now we can just concentrate on Serie A which is tough. We have to keep plugging away as always.”

The Beneamata, just one point behind leaders Juventus in the standings, are away to Atalanta this weekend.
