Inter Milan traveled to Sardinia hoping to quickly wipe off their Champions League woes. They went behind in minute 41 despite having the lion share of possession. Sottil scored for Cagliari after finding himself free in the box
Sottil’s initial short was blocked. With the Nerazzuri defenders still lying on the floor from the block,he followed up the airborne ball to volley expertly from an acute angle. The anger from Handanovic was palpable.After the break, Conte brought on Lantauro,Young and Sensi and the siege toward the Cagliari go began. Inter deservedly leveled the scores with a volley from Barella after the Cagliari keeper had thought he had done enough to punch away a corner kick.
Inter seemed to have winner from D’Ambrossio who had been on the pitch for a few minutes. A quickly taken corner kick was crossed high into the box by the impressive Barella. Everyone in Cagliari colors seemed to have stopped. D’Ambrossio nodded in from close range for 2-1 Inter. It was not him who scored the last goal. It was Belgian international striker Lukaku in injury time. The Cagliari keeper had gone upfront to join the attack in a last ditch effort to score the equaliser. Lantauro picked the loose ball near the center circle,fed Lukaku. Lukaku had an open field to run into like an NFL receiver after outrunning the goalie to score the easiest goal he will score all season. 3-1 it finished.
