An 89th-minute goal from Brazil’s Rodrygo Goes through Frenchman Eduardo Camavinga knocked down Inter Milan’s defensive wall on Wednesday and gave Real Madrid a valuable 1-0 win at San Siro, in their debut in the group stage of the 2021-22 Champions League. with the Belgian Eden Hazard on the bench and without minutes, and unbalanced an intense, even game, in which both teams alternated in command of the game, which ended with the thirteen-time European champion taking the three points, to lead group D with the surprise Sheriff Tiraspol.De Vinicius to Rodrygo. On a night in which “Vini” once again gave away details of class and sparked Real Madrid even in the moments of most suffering, but without scoring, he was the other Brazilian jewel of the white team to illuminate the Milanese night. Rodrygo and before the goal Thibaut Courtois, protagonist with a long series of stops of merit, especially in a first half in which Inter put in great trouble the defensive pair of Ancelotti, formed by the Austrian David Alaba with Nacho Fernández, and came to finish up thirteen times towards the rival goal. Carlo Ancelotti, who sat Hazard the whole game, was not satisfied with his team. The interista aggressiveness, in particular with the centers of the Croatian Ivan Perisic and Nicoló Barella, put the Madrid central players in trouble. The Whites, who had won back and forth last year against Inter, also in the group stage, shook off the rival dominance in the resumption, while the Milanese were running out of gas. Bosnian Edin Dzeko and Argentina’s Lautaro Martinez, Inter’s most dangerous, were unable to break down the Courtois wall and little by little the quality and electricity of the Madrid trident emerged. The coaches tried to mix the cards and it was Ancelotti who found the key, with Camavinga, on his Champions League debut, and Rodrygo creating the decisive action to leave Milan with the three points. The Frenchman gave an elegant assist in the area to Rodrygo, who struck Slovenian goalkeeper Samir Handanovic with an accurate cross-shot with his left leg. It was the 89th minute and Real Madrid, who in the last twenty had repeatedly run into the Interista defense, in particular with a Slovak Milan Skriniar, who repelled a very dangerous shot from Vinicius, was collapsing the wall. The Milanese had only one attempt at an epic comeback left, but their options ran out in the third minute of added time, with a centre in which even Handanovic sought glory, without success. It starts with a victory of great international prestige the European Cup of Real Madrid, which seeks to recover the scepter of king after falling in the semifinals last year against Chelsea, ultimately champion.
