has admitted that it was a weight off his shoulders to be able to bring the club to the next stage in the Champions League after a decade.

Although they seemed to be struggling for a goal in the first hour of the match, Dzeko finally managed to score two goals in six minutes to give the fans and Inzaghi something to celebrate.

“Dzeko’s opening goal was like a weight off our shoulders after we created so much,”

Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia, explaining his outlandish celebrations on the touchline.

“Reaching the Round of 16 would be a great achievement, I said that the day I was presented as coach of Inter. The day I signed the contract, I said this was the objective, something Inter hadn’t done in over 10 years.

“Now we’ve got 10 points and have won three in a row, getting this victory just three days after beating Napoli in Serie A.”

Inzaghi has also talked about his side’s tough mission in both domestic and continental tournaments, insisting that they must be aware of the hard job that they have ahead of them as there is danger at every corner.

“We are in a good period of form, but we must also remember there are dangers around every corner and a long way to go. We wanted this victory at all costs.

“The lads are extraordinary in the way they follow my instructions and I adapted the tactics I had at Lazio to suit the players with certain characteristics. We have the most prolific attack in Serie A, but are a few points behind and want to catch up.”
