Inter Milan have qualified for the 2023 UEFA Champions League Final after beating neighbors AC Milan at home and away at the San Siro.
In the first leg at San Siro, which happens to be the home ground of both Italian giants, Džeko and Mkhitaryan each scored a goal to give Inter Milan a huge advantage going into the second leg.
On Tuesday 16 May, Milan and Inter meet on the familiar pitch to finish what they started in the first leg. AC Milan fans flocked to the pitch as usual in the hope that their players could do the trick to overturn the first leg result.
Unfortunately, Inter Milan, who entered the second leg with a two-goal lead, were the most exciting. They played smooth football for most of the game.
AC Milan also tried their best to close the gap but their best was not enough to stop Inter from scoring.
Things went from bad to worse when Inter Milan scored in an exciting encounter thanks to Martinez’s boots.
The Argentinian shortened to Lukaku in the crowded area, and the Belgian striker kept his composure and passed the ball back to his teammate, who sent the ball past goalkeeper Mike Maignan.
The goal is a pinnacle of coffee for AC Milan and a direct ticket to Istanbul, Turkey (site of the 2023 Champions League final) for Inter Milan. They ended Milan’s streak with a 3-0 aggregate victory.
This means Inter Milan will face Manchester City or Real Madrid in the Champions League final on June 10. The return leg between Man City and Madrid will take place at Etihad at 8:00pm Vietnam time, Wednesday, May 17.
