    Opportunities galore for Inter

    Inter is currently comfortably in the lead in Serie A. It was also in control in the 1/8th finals of the Champions League against Atletico.

    They got off to a good start, but were unable to immediately translate their dominance onto the scoreboard. Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram missed the best chances.

    Atletico (with Witsel in the starting line-up and Vermeeren on the bench) created some nice combinations. Creating goal chances was a different matter.

    Axel Witsel and Atletico’s defense have to work hard in Milan.

    Substitute Arnautovic converts one

    Same game pattern in the second half. Now it was Marko Arnautovic, he replaced the injured Thuram, who missed the chances. The Austrian managed to aim the ball over the goal, face to face with Oblak.

    After three misses, Arnautovic still scored. On the rebound he knocked in an attempt from striker Martinez.

    The return match will take place in Madrid in 3 weeks.
