Inter Milan excited

Internazionale go into this weekend's game at Napoli believing they may have delivered a knock-out punch to Scudetto contenders Roma.

Inter coach Roberto Mancini saw his side grab a 1-1 draw against the Giallorossi on Wednesday night after Javier Zanetti struck late to cancel out Francesco Totti's earlier goal.

The Nerazzuri were below their best in the game, but remain unbeaten to hold on to their nine-point lead over the Eternal City giants with 13 games remaining.

"I am satisfied with the result," said Mancini, whose team were forced to play the final 20 minutes of the game with 10 men after Maxwell was injured following his third and final substitution.

"This draw tastes like a victory especially considering how the game developed.

"We were a goal down, we had to play at a numerical disadvantage for the last 20 minutes of the game, risking another goal. But we showed character and we were able to equalise.

"Now nine points are many and if they haven't beaten us with the many problems we had it's a good sign."
