Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti hassaid that the upcoming Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven remains the most important once since he took over the reins at the Nerazzurri. The Italian tactician guided the club to the Champions League after six years during his debut campaign last term and he is now looking to helping them progress to the round of 16.
Speaking to reporters, he said:“This match is the most important one since I’ve been here and it represents the next step that follows on from Lazio vs. Inter on 20 May.

Inter returned from the previous international break with a comfortable 3-0 win over Serie A minnows Frosinone but they have since struggled with just one draw from the games against Tottenham Hotspur, AS Roma,and Inter Milan.
