After a convincing 3-0 aggregate win over rivals AC Milan in the Champions League semi-final, Inter Milan is heading to Istanbul for the Champions League final. It’s hard to believe I’m typing these words after the challenging season Inter has had, but here we are.
Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku displayed some delightful interchange play in the box, sealing AC Milan’s fate late in the second leg. This opportunity gives Lautaro a chance to win a World Cup and a Champions League final within a year of each other.
Having emerged from the group of death, which featured Spanish champions Barcelona and Bayern Munich, Simone Inzaghi’s Inter triumphed over Porto, Benfica, and Milan on their journey to the final. It has been an impressive gauntlet that will forever cement this Inter team as legendary, regardless of the final outcome.
