Diego Milito assures Inter are “confident” ahead of Europa League qualifiers against either Hajduk Split or FC Skonto Riga.
“They will be two very difficult games and we know both sides are further ahead than us in terms of pre-season preparations,” Milito told Inter Channel.
“In physical terms, we will face a bit of a struggle. However, we are confident and have belief in our capabilities, so we await these matches to do well, as we want to progress.
“We are accustomed to facing teams who give their all against us. In that sense, the next few friendlies will be important so we can prepare as best we can.”
On Saturday evening Inter are in the traditional Trofeo TIM, where they will face Juventus and Milan in 45-minute matches.
“It is always enjoyable to play against Juventus and Milan, hopefully in a stadium with many people. We will try as always to do well while keeping an eye on our fitness levels.”
The mini-tournament is at the Stadio San Nicola in Bari.
