A Inter Milan made the home factor and its greater technical quality count to beat Red Bull Salzurg, this Tuesday, 24th, for the Champions League, 2-1. The game at Giuseppe Meazza, in Milan, was for the third round of Group D. The result kept the Italian team in the qualifying zone for the round of 16, now with seven points and with Real Sociedad as their pursuers for the leadership. Salzburg, with two points, is in a complicated situation and is starting to see a fight for third place (a place in the Europa League) with Benfica as more likely.

Internazionale’s goals came from Chilean Alexis Sánchez and Turkish Çalhanoglou. For Red Bull Salzburg, the Israeli Oscar Gloukh scored.

Inter Milan ahead

The first half was marked by balance and a truncated game, with few scoring opportunities. But good technical quality. However, Inter Milan went into the break with an advantage. After all, he opened the scoring in the 19th minute when Alexis Sánchez received the ball unmarked in the box on the left. The Chilean sent a powerful and accurate shot to open the scoring.

Salzburg draws, but Inter doesn’t mess around and wins

In the second half, the game caught fire. Carlos Eduardo had the chance to score another for Inter. But Salzburg, without fear, started to force the score and, in a great plot in the 12th minute, equalized. Simic played for Kaejgaard to find Gloch unmarked. This one hit to score a beautiful goal. But the joy was short-lived for the Austrians. At 18, Frattesi suffered a penalty from Gouma-Douath and Çalhanoglou took the penalty to put Inter back in front. The game started to have chances for both sides, but with Inter more dangerous and almost expanding with French striker Thuram.
