The showdown of two favorites ended with a defeat of Internazionale. Italian guests showed good will to equalise at least, but unluckily for them the match ended with a such a desirable victory for Los Blancos (3-2).

Inter Milan are unbeaten in this year’s Champions League as they drew 2-2(Borussia Monchengladbach) and 0-0 against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Goals: 

  • Karim Benzema 25′,
  • Sergio Ramos 33′,
  • Lautaro 35′,
  • Perišić 68′,
  • Rodrygo 80′.

Inter Milan showed their victorious passion saving the winner mentality and responding to 2 goals of Los Blancos. At the end of the match 19-years-old Brazilian Rodrygo  striker shot it to the nine and made it 3-2

Rodrygo to the rescue:

In fact it was a pretty equal game with 43% of time in the middle of the pitch and ~28% in the thirds of both teams according to Whoscored. With 12-12 shots and 55.3% – 44.7% possession it was an open enough game of two big clubs. Passes: 602 – 486. But in fact Real Madrid was more successful and dangerous in the last third with 7 of 13 shots on target— 54%, while it was just only 25% for Internazionale— 3 of 12. One of the reasons explaining this difference is the absence of the main Milan`s striker Romelu Lukaku.
