Inter Milan is looking forward to winning European football for the first time since 2010. The Nerazzurri also deservedly won the Champions League semi-final second leg against arch-rivals Milan 1-0 (0-0) and can dream of a handle in the final on June 10 in Istanbul. Inter’s rival is the winner of the Manchester City-Real Madrid match (first leg 1-1) on Wednesday.
In the legendary “Derby della Madonnina”, world champion Lautaro Martinez scored the celebrated goal of the evening (74) in front of 75,000 fans at the venerable Giuseppe Meazza stadium. Inter looked more mature and were not in danger. Simone Inzaghi’s side had already laid the foundation with a 2-0 victory in the first leg.
Inter’s return to the final after 13 years – when they won the title by beating Bayern Munich 2-0 – was a huge surprise. In the group stage, the 19-time Italian champions had no chance against Bayern Munich, but then improved in the knockout matches against Porto and Benfica Lisbon – and now against AC Milan.
