Ten man Inter beat their counterparts 1-0 in Italian Serie A action on Sunday 7 October 2012 at the San Siro Stadium in Milan, despite playing the full duration of the second half with ten men after the sending off of defender Yuto Nagamoto.
In the end though, Strammacioni was left to celebrate a strong win and afterwards, he praised the spirit his players showed in collecting the win.
- I've said it before and I'll say it again. Let's not worry too much about the table, what matters is the progress these lads make, both psychologically and in terms of organisation. I think the fact we conceded so little space this evening is a sign of mental strength.
- These days it's very tough to play when you're a man down.
- We need to be more consistent in taking the game to our opponents. This is our biggest weakness at the moment, but I now feel I have a well-organised team, capable of hurting our opponents. More than the coach, tonight was all about the players on show, he told the club's official website.
Inter's win see's them move to just four points behind leaders Juventus atop the Serie A table.
