Sampdoria coach Del Neri denies missing chance against 9-man Inter Milan

Sampdoria coach Gigi del Neri was satisfied with their 0-0 draw with Inter Milan.

This came despite Inter finishing the game with just nine men. Walter Samuel and Ivan Cordoba were red carded in the opening 38 minutes, but the Blucerchiati's best chances were ironically before the dismissals.

"No regrets, as we did well with XI against XI, so the game was on the right track for us," he said of the 0-0 draw.

"We knew Inter were strong, but also that with nine men they could score on a corner or the counter-attack.

"It would've been foolish to push forward too much and play into their hands. Inter defended very well, but so can we with nine men."
