The production of Inter in the Champions League It is, perhaps, the biggest disappointment of the contest so far. Not only could he not qualify for the round of 16, but he also did not get into the Europa League after being in the last position of the group. The team of Antonio Conte He didn’t get the win he needed and said goodbye to European competition until next year. Above, in Italy, they blame Romelu Lukaku.
Alessandro Del Piero, former player and legend of Juventus and the ‘Azzurra’ team, charged hard against the Belgian forward. «He disappeared in the second half. His presence should be more important since, without a doubt, he has enormous qualities. Against Shakhtar, he was the protagonist of a bad page, “said the former midfielder in Sky Sports. No one was saved from criticism in the ‘Nerazzurri’.
Lukaku is one of the greatest figures of the Inter since he disembarked in mid-2019. He had an excellent first season in the Lombard team, where he won the runner-up in the Europa League (they lost to Sevilla). This new campaign is no exception, as the former Manchester United striker continued to provide goals and offensive power: he has 12 victories between Serie A and the Champions League.
His participation in the Champions
However, as Del Piero said, he did not perform well in the key game against Shakhtar, at the close of the group stage. Due to the victory of Real Madrid over Borussia Mönchengladbach, the ‘Nerazzurri’ had enough with a victory to get into the second round of the Champions League. The score was tied at zero and, to top it all, Lukaku he got in the way of a header from Alexis Sánchez that was destined for the net at the end.
The remaining goal
Now to Inter He only has to fight until the end for Serie A and, secondly, the Italian Cup. Currently, it is located in the third step of the standings.
