Javier Zanetti expressed his delight as Inter overcame a controversial opener from Arturo Vidal to close the gap on Juventus.

The Nerazzurri were stunned after the Chilean’s early goal after just 19 seconds, with Kwadwo Asamoah looking offside in the build-up, but soon took control of the encounter as two goals from Diego Milito and one from Rodrigo Palacio allowed them to close the gap at the top of the table to a single point.

“Yes, it is a historic victory, above all for the strength of our opponents,” said Zanetti after the win.

“We knew Juventus were unbeaten for a long time and deserved to be top of the table. We are aiming to become a great team and I believe the path we are on is the right one.

“We are a new squad who want to be fighting for the Scudetto come the end of the season.”

Inter’s ninth consecutive win in all competitions underlined their title credentials as they ended the 49-game unbeaten run of last season’s champions.

“We knew that we had to face this game with great character, even when things do not go your way. The victory was deserved,” Zanetti added.
