Sampdoria tactician Domenico Di Carlo has praised his side for the work they have done to claim a point against Inter at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium.
Di Carlo revealed his players had studied the Nerazzurri, and knew how to combat their attacks.
"We were playing against the strongest squad in Europe," Di Carlo explains to Sky Sport post-match. "We had prepared well for the match, knowing not to give space to Inter when they were on the attack.
"We could have put them under more pressure when they played with the ball, but I am satisfied. I am saddened by the injury to [goalkeeper Gianluca] Curci, as I wanted to bring on another striker.
"Inter are a side that when they accelerate, are hard to contain, but we studied them well.
"With every match, we are getting better. The team did their best trying to win without giving too much of the ball away," concluded Di Carlo.
