Inter have qualified for this season’s UEFA Champions League finals after prevailing 2-0 in the first leg and 1-0 in the second leg against arch-rivals AC Milan.

The second leg, played on Tuesday evening, at the “Giuseppe Meazza”, started with a first half in which AC Milan had the better opportunities. Hernandez, Diaz and Leao took turns to open the scoring, but Inter escaped each time without conceding a goal. The hosts also missed two big chances at the end of the first half, through Barella and Dzeko. After a first half in which AC Milan managed to create some danger at the opposing goal, in the second half Inter played an impeccable game and closed perfectly. The “Rossoneri” didn’t have a single shot on goal in the last 45 minutes, and a quarter of an hour before the final whistle, the penalty kick came. Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku combined perfectly in the box and the responsibility to finish fell to the Argentinian. Lautaro set up Maignan with a stunning shot at the short corner and snuffed out any hope AC Milan might have had.

After winning 2-0 away, Inter Milan also won the return from “Giuseppe Meazza” and became the first finalist of this season’s UEFA Champions League.

In the last act, which will be contested in Istanbul, Turkey, Inter will be waiting for either Manchester City or Real Madrid. The latter’s round match ended in a tie, score 1-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu, and the return leg at the Etihad is scheduled for Wednesday, May 17, from 10:00 p.m.

Lautaro Martinez, confident his team can win the grand final

Lautaro Martinez, the scorer of the only goal for ‘Giuseppe Meazza’, had a warrior statement at the end of Tuesday night’s derby:

“There is a lot of history in this derby and I felt it. I did a great job, I told that to the boys in the dressing room. Team unity made the difference, we experienced it at the World Cup as well. If the team is united and everyone is shooting for the same goal, anything is possible. We proved that Inter deserves to experience such moments.

Every day I try to improve myself and give a helping hand to my colleagues, even from this position, that of world champion. The final? We’ll see who we meet in Istanbul. What is certain is that we will play and give our best. They say finals aren’t played, they’re won! So it will be”said Lautaro Martinez, after Inter – AC Milan 1-0, at the Sky Sports microphone.
