Inter Milan coach Conte: We're in the Europa League to win it

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte says they're in the Europa League to win it after their quarterfinal win over Bayer Leverkusen.

Inter won 2-1 thanks to Barella and Romelu Lukaku goals, as Kai Havertz pulled one back.

“We are very satisfied, because it was a very good performance. We prepared it the right way, never let Leverkusen play the ball comfortably, we did what we worked on in training," Conte told Sky Sport Italia.

“As I always end up saying, we could've killed the game off earlier and relaxed a little. We didn't allow many chances at all, but the fact is we had so many chances and should've scored more than two.

“The lads showed how hungry they were, how determined to prove that what they're doing is important. We've got an opportunity to play a Europa League semi-final, so can be pleased, but from tomorrow must begin preparing for the semi-final.

“We want to achieve the maximum. We want to go all the way."
