Inter Milan defeated Viktoria Plzen 4-0 at home in their group-stage Champions League fixture. The Nerazzurri made 3 changes to the team for this match. Bastoni replaced Stefen De Vrij and Acerbi filled in for Darmian. Edin Dzeko returned to the squad as Correa stayed on the bench.
Inter vied for the lead in the 25th minute as Dzeko released Di Marco for the shot but it was shut down by a block from Stanek. Henrikh Mkhitaryan drew the first blood as he rounds off a cross from Bastoni through the flanks. The returning Edin Dzeko bagged a brace scoring just before halftime. Romelu Lukaku buried the game in the 87th minute after combing with Correa for a beautiful one-two play.
Barcelona paved their way out of the Champions League with Inter Milan thrashing Viktoria Plzen. This is the second consecutive season that the Blaugrana have failed to make it into the round of 16. The lack of availability of players saw the team topple down in the group stage itself. In a pre-match conference, Barca gaffer Xavi said that the whole team will watch the match together in the locker room. They also promised to go for a good match whatever the result fared back in Milan. the Catalans face Bayern at Camp Nou tonight.
Barcelona fans this season:
Europe will respect Barcelona.
Under Xavi, Gavi is growing well.
Raphinha will cook at Barca.
Ousmanne Dembele is back.
Pedri is better than KDB.
Ansu Fati is back to his best.
Now read the first letter of each line💔😂Advertisement
