Ivan Perisic has warned his Inter Milan teammates to learn from past experiences and called for focus ahead of their clash against Benevento.

The winners of the Coppa Italia Round of 16 tie between the two sides will face Lazio in the next round. And Perisic is leaving no stone unturned.

“All games are important. We know from past experiences that if you are not 100 per cent focused, you can lose a Coppa Italia fixture like this,” the Croatia international told Football Italia and Inter TV.

“We are aware of the situation and therefore will be fully concentrated from start to finish so we can bring the result home.”

Inter played Benevento only twice before, winning 2-1 away and 2-0 at home in Serie A last season, but they were far from easy games.

“I remember well that last season Benevento played well here and we scored twice on corners after the break. It’s always difficult if you don’t give your best.
