Inter Milan’s participation in the Champions League started unevenly, but they found better football rhythm during the group stage and are close to obtaining their ticket to the round of 16 with a partial triumph over Shakhtar. Bosnian Edin Dzeko scored a double in the second half and unleashed joy in the Italians.
The match had had scoring chances, although the forwards did not find the peace of mind to break the parity. However, at 60 ′, they devised a clear attack opportunity on the left, thanks to the great overflow that Croatian Ivan Perišić started, starting from the middle of the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium field.
Precisely, Edin Dzeko had been in charge of enabling it and because of that detail he stayed several meters away from the Shakhtar area. Finally, Perišić raised a cross to look for the aerial game of Lautaro Martínez, who could not finish, but the rebound was favorable for Matteo Darmian, who defined the first.
The shot was blocked and the Bosnian striker suddenly appeared to finish with great violence, overcoming the resistance of goalkeeper Anatolii Trubin. Then, at 66 ′, the double of the Inter Milan attacker was completed, again a product of the imbalance that his Croatian teammate generated.
Ivan Perišić won the left baseline and cleared the far post, where Edin Dzeko came free to score with a header. For now, the ‘Nerazzurri’ is leader of Group D with 10 points, followed by Real Madrid with nine and Sheriff Tiraspol with six (both face this Wednesday). Shakhtar closes the eliminated zone with only one unit.
