Media watch: Conte and Vidal smashed

La Gazzetta dello Sport says Antonio Conte's Inter 'need a miracle' to advance in the Champions League, as Italian papers hit out at Arturo Vidal.

The Chilean midfielder was sent off for two bookings in the space of ten seconds in the first half of Inter-Real Madrid at the Giuseppe Meazza on Wednesday.

The former Juventus midfielder cost Inter the game and, maybe, the qualification for the last-16 stage of the competition.

Vidal is rated 3 by Il Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport, and 4 by La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Conte also has insufficient ratings: 5 in Gazzetta and Tuttosport, 4.5 by Il Corriere dello Sport.

Inter sit last in their group and La Gazzetta dello Sport writes Antonio Conte 'needs a miracle' to go through.

Il Corriere dello Sport claims the problem is not the difference between Inter and Real but the fact that Borussia Monchengladbach have six points more than the Nerazzurri in the table.
