Yesterday night, Inter welcomed Spanish super club Real Madrid to Milan in their first Champions League game of the season. The game was very close throughout the 90 minutes until the last minute where all Inter Milan fans hearts broke as Rodrygo scored again a late winner, similar to his goal against Inter last year.

The game started off well for the Nerazzuri bossing possession and creating plenty of chances for themselves, chances they couldn’t convert. Inter player and man of the match Marcelo Brozovic even admitted in a post match interview saying “We played too well in the first half, it had to be 3-0 minimum”.
The second half started very differently to the first. Real Madrid were the creators and on the front foot whilst Inter relied on defenders Milan Skriniar and Stefan De Vrij to control the defence. Inter’s substitutions set them back as their rhythm was quickly forgotten and gone. With Real Madrid on the front foot Rodrygo found the opening goal late on in the game in the 89th minute to shatter Nerazzuri hearts.
