Simone Inzaghi says that it is very important for them to be in the last 16 stage.

After their 2-2 draw against

Club Brugge

, the


coach has talked about the importance of his team’s qualification for the next round of

Champions League

claiming that it isn’t less than a trophy.

It is their first time to qualify for the next round of Champions League after 20 years.

“We deserve to go through, we’ve never lost a game so far, we earned it,”

Simone Inzaghi

told Sky Sport


“We played a great game even if we couldn’t score the third goal. At the end of the first half I had players lying on the beds in the medical room. They didn’t look great and I asked them for a sacrifice.

“The only regret is not celebrating with our fans because I imagine what could have happened at the Olimpico tonight. We gave them a joy and we are happy.

“This qualification is like a trophy for me, we suffered, it will be right to do an analysis of the last minutes of the game, we could have done better but it is right to celebrate now. We have to go ahead in the league, Saturday we will have an important match against Verona.”
