Inter Milan unfolds against Plzen and joins the 8th, Barça eliminated from the Champions League

Inter Milan played the double on Wednesday. His qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League and the early elimination of Barça from the biggest European competition, even before the shock against Bayern Munich. The Italians won easily against the Czechs of Viktoria Plzen (4-0) for the 5th day of the Champions League. All was not perfect, however.

Inter unrolled like a diesel, in the wake of Federico Di Marco, omnipresent. Timorous or even rough at the start of the meeting, jostled in the duels, the Milanese gradually took the measure of the event. It was the Italian left side, Di Marco, who woke up his people. At the end of a fantastic three-way game in the area with Martinez and Dzeko, the left-hander came up against the Czech goalkeeper Jindrich Stanek (25th), as well as the Armenian Henrikh Mkhitaryan (25th, 29th), scorer finally at the 35th minute of play, on a pass from Alessandro Bastoni, a very offensive and skilful defender.

The Milanese then showed their superiority. Striker Edin Dzeko scored an easy double (42nd, 66th), the first offered by Federico Di Marco, whose control-center sequence is sumptuous. Romelu Lukaku, back on the pitch two months after his thigh injury, scored the last goal of the game (87th). Thanks to this victory, Inter offers a second qualification in the round of 16 of the Champions League and eliminates Barça.
