Milito: Anger at offside goal motivated Inter comeback

Two-goal hero Diego Milito attributed Inter Milan's 3-1 victory over Juventus to the rage inside the visitors' dressing-room during the half-time interval.

Andrea Stramaccioni's side was angered by the decision to allow the Bianconeri's opening goal a matter of seconds into the contest, after replays showed that Arturo Vidal was offside in the build-up. Inter recovered from falling behind to register a ninth consecutive victory in all competitions, leaving Milito happy that justice had been served.

"It was a very tough game against the reigning champions," he told Sky Sport Italia. "We went behind early on, but after the goal we grew in confidence and in the end deserved the win. We came back out for the second-half with so much anger after the offside goal, which motivated us to deliver a fantastic performance.

The win reduces the gap between the two sides to a solitary point at the top of Serie A, and the 33-year-old striker is confident his side can usurp Antonio Conte's men as Scudetto champions.

"We have to continue along our path, try and make life difficult for Juve and the other opponents," Milito said. Then, we'll see what happens."
