Lautaro Martinez

said Inter can still catch Napoli in the second part of the season.

"We knew that this would be a game like this, tough, as Verona man-mark all over the pitch," 

Martinez told Sky Sport Italia.

 "We scored early and then did what we had prepared. It was important to get all three points today.

"It is possible [to catch Napoli] as there is a long way to go yet. But we have to make no more mistakes; we need to get every point going or they will be too far away.”

Inter has played 4 matches in the last 11 days and Simone Inzaghi admitted that he was worried about their fitness level in this match.

"We were coming off 120 minutes played on Tuesday, but the team remained sharp,"

Inzaghi said.

"We scored early and then, despite a little tension in the closing stages, we remained solid and focused without suffering much against a Verona side that could cause us problems.

"I was concerned by our fitness levels with [Hakan] Calhanoglu and [Nicolo] Barella, who pushed themselves so hard to be available today.

"They were in doubt until yesterday, while [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan, [Roberto] Gagliardini and [Kristjan] Asllani really helped out in these games with their midfield performances."
