Inter Milan 3 Monchengladbach 2
Inter after their win against Sassuolo Inter took on Monchengladbach in the Champions League. This was a must win as if Inter lost they would be eliminated from European competitions. Here is how things played out. In the first half was full of excitement same with the second but the first half started off dicey for Inter. Seventeen minutes into the half Inter would strike first has Darmian landed a shot from the right of the box after a cross from Gagliardini landing it in the lower right corner making things 1-0. However at the time Monchengladbach were the more dominant side. At the end of the half Monchengladbach would equalize with a goal from Plea making things even once more. But in the second half Inter made adjustments and kicked it into high gear. Fifteen minutes into the second half the main man Lukaku finds the net from the right of the box giving Inter the lead once again. Then a few minutes later Lukaku added to their lead after a shot from the center of the box making things 3-1. But Monchengladbach weren’t going down without a fight as Plea would find the net again with a shot from the center of the box. This made things 3-2. This match could’ve ended in a draw but unfortunately Plea was caught offside and Inter would hold on for the much needed win as they keep their European competition hopes alive.
This was a HUGE win for Inter. This keeps Inter’s European competition hopes much alive. They performed as a much more cohesive unit whereas they were having issues with this since the start of the season this is a massive improvement. But now there needs to be more consistancy in performance level. Yeah there will be more losses for sure but they need to work on bouncing back from those losses and even if they do lose they need to keep the mentality of fighting to the end instead of giving up. The attack really kicked it into gear keeping Monchengladbach chasing after them and trying to stop Inter’s advances. Defensive wise they did a great job keeping up with a majority of Monchengladbach’s chances. The man of the match goes to Lukaku who got Inter back into this match and secured them the much needed win. Next match Inter take on struggling Bologna this should be a win for Inter but next week is a make or break match as Inter take on Shaktar in the final group stage match of the Champions League if Inter lose they can kiss European competition goodbye but for now take this momentum against Bologna and go from there. But very well done from the boys today. As always until the next one Forza Inter.
