 Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi said his side is capable of winning any type of match as it looks to keep up the pressure on Serie A leader AC Milan by beating Hellas Verona on Saturday.

Champion Inter's indifferent form going into its showdown with Juventus last weekend put its title defence in danger but a hard-earned 1-0 win in Turin, coupled with Milan's home draw with Bologna, saw Inzaghi's side close the gap to four points.

"It was a very important win from all points of view," Inzaghi told a news conference on Friday.

"We got it against a very strong team and it allows us to stay close to the leaders and to play the final part of the season in the best possible way.

"I think this Inter team has what it takes to win any type of match. In Turin, we did well, when we had to suffer we all suffered together and this allowed us to win a crucial game in our season. Verona will also be a very important match for us."

Inzaghi also revealed that Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez is injured for Saturday's clash at San Siro.

"Tomorrow Lautaro will be missing but I am lucky to have (Edin) Dzeko, (Joaquin) Correa, (Felipe) Caicedo and (Alexis) Sanchez who are well, available and are training in the best way.

"Not just for the forwards, an important performance will be needed by the whole team.
