Romelu Lukaku produces inch perfect pass to set up Lautaro Martinez in Inter vs Slavua Prague during their Champions League encounter.
Inter Milan played Slavia Prague in the Champions League, still fighting for a place in the round of 16. Both Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund are currently ahead of the Italian outfit in the points table at the moment.
However, Inter Milan can still qualify for the round of 16 and they began their bid for a knockout stage chase in the best way possible. Former Manchester United striker, Romelu Lukaku, helped them score the opening goal with a sublime pass.

Lukaku powered the ball forward after winning the ball. He then proceeded to beat 2 other men before providing the ball inside the box to his strike partner Lautaro Martinez, who made no mistake and placed the ball behind the nets.

Inter Milan have took lead in the match once again after conceding the equaliser in the 37th minute of the match. Romelu Lukaku had appeared to double Inter’s lead in the 35th minute.
However, VAR then cancelled the goal and instead awarded Slavia Prague a penalty on the other side of the pitch. Tomas Soucek made no mistake from the spot and helped his side leave the pitch at half-time with the scores tied.
Some great VAR banter as Inter Milan score a goal, but it is cancelled out for a Slavia Prague penalty at the other end. Was 0-2, now 1-1.

Lukaku though, was not done for the night. The Belgian eventually produced Inter’s second goal of the night after finding the net himself in the 81st minute of the match. Lautaro Martinez also added another goal to his tally to help his side go 3-1 up.
If Inter Milan are to qualify for the knock out stage, they will have to beat Barcelona at the San Siro; or hope that Slavia Prague beat Dortmund. The safer of the two options though, would be to defeat the visiting Barcelona side in the last week of the group stage matches.
