Borja Valero felt the 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur “could’ve gone either way,” but their Champions League fate is now out of their hands.
“It’s a painful defeat, as we played well in my view and unfortunately conceded that late goal that ruined everything,” the midfielder told Sky Sport Italia.
“I thought both teams had chances to score and it could’ve gone either way, in the end they got the ball in the net and we didn’t.”
If Tottenham beat Barcelona at Camp Nou, then Inter are out of the Champions League.
The Nerazzurri have to get a better result than Spurs to qualify, as they have an inferior head-to-head record on away goals.
“We can’t think about the other game, as we can’t do anything about it, so we must focus on our own performance.”
