thumbnail Hello,

The experienced Argentine feels the Nerazzurri put in an outstanding performance in the opening 45 minutes, but stated that Juve's goal ended their good spell

Inter skipper Javier Zanetti has expressed his disappointment with the Giuseppe Meazza side's 2-0 Serie A loss away against Juventus, as he feels they deserved better after an 'excellent' first half.

The Nerazzurri caused their opponents plenty of problems in the opening 45 minutes, but failed to break the deadlock and were made to pay for their inability to score after the break as Martin Caceres and Alessandro Del Piero helped Juventus to the full three points.

"Inter put in an excellent performance in the first half. We managed to do this in Juventus' own stadium, in a place where they are still unbeaten," Zanetti stated to Sky Sport.

"We knew that we could cause them problems, but we were unfortunately unable to capitalise. We also started the second half pretty well, but then Juventus' goal affected us badly."

Inter have dropped to eighth in the Serie A table following this weekend's results.
