It’s another super save by the Belgian. This time he denies Dzeko from close range. The former Roma captain heads low and hard but Courtois keeps him out. The Uruguayan looks to bend a shot with the outside of his boot from the right-hand side of the box but it flies high and wide.
Modric takes his corner short to Alaba. The Austrian crosses to the near post and Inter clear. Madrid are definitely looking more positive in this second half. Skriniar has been excellent at the back for Inter.
Courtois has kept Madrid in the game. Inter have been the better side and will be regretting their missed chances. Madrid have yet to get going and Ancelotti may look to the bench early in the second half.
Calhanoglu drives forward on the counter attack, Lautaro makes a run across the Madrid defence, before the Turkish playmaker rolls a ball that goes just too far ahead of the Argentinian striker.
Straight up the other end, Barella whips a fine ball into Lautaro, who also sends his header wide. And just seconds later, Brozovic drives a low shot wide of Courtois’ right-hand post. This lifts the San Siro.
Inter have been the better of the two sides in the opening 25 minutes. Madrid are sitting in their own half and struggling to get a hold of the ball. Simone Inzaghi will be pleased with his side’s early display.
The Camavinga and Rodrygo connection on this goal!
