Inter striker Pazzini: Except for the big teams, all clubs in Serie A defend with 10 or 11 men behind the ball

The Italy international has voiced his frustration with the defensive tactics employed by the majority of Serie A outfits, although claimed none of the big sides are guilty
Inter striker Giampaolo Pazzini has stressed that the Nerazzurri will have to be careful in Friday's Serie A encounter against Bologna as he feels the majority of Italian clubs play on the counterattack.

The 2010 Champions League winners were beaten 1-0 by Novara in their last encounter, and Pazzini has warned that they can not afford to make the same mistakes again versus Bologna.

"All the teams who play against us defend deep and try to get the ball forward on the counter, we know it and we're prepared for it," Pazzini said to Inter Channel.

"The only teams who don't do that are big clubs; all the others defend with 10, 11 men behind the ball and attack on the break.

"Novara did it and they scored with their only chance and then it was hard. We'll definitely have to be careful not to give them space on the counter tomorrow."

Friday's match at the Giuseppe Meazza kicks off at 20.45CET.
