After enduring a lot of pressure in the first half, Real Madrid equalized the game against Internazionale in the final stage and had the individual brilliance of Brazilian Rodrygo to leave Giuseppe Meazza with a 1-0 victory in the first round of the Liga group stage of Champions.
The first half was marked by pressure from the Italians in search of the first goal. Inter Milan kicked Courtois’ goal thirteen times and demanded the Belgian goalkeeper’s attention. Strikers Lautaro Martínez and Dzeko were the most fired. Real Madrid was suffocated and barely made it to the opponent’s goal.
Carlo Ancelotti managed to fix Real Madrid’s tactical scheme at half-time and the Spanish team came back more dominant in the second half, causing problems for Inter’s defense with Benzema and Vinicius Júnior. Inzaghi tried to respond with substitutions in the Italian team, but no one seemed to be able to open the scoring at Giuseppe Meazza. That’s when Rodrygo, who had entered in the 19th minute, shone and scored Real’s winning goal in the 43rd minute, with assistance from Camavinga.
The two teams return to the field for the 2nd round of the Champions League group stage on the last Tuesday of the month (28). First, Internazionale visits Shakhtar Donetsk at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev at 13:45 (GMT). Then it’s Real Madrid’s turn to return to the Santiago Bernabéu and receive Sheriff Tiraspol.
