CLUJ - Inter have seen off Cluj 3-0 tonight, and storm into the Europa League last 16, 5-0 on aggregate. Fredy Guarin bagged two and Benassi added a third late on, and the Nerazzurri will now meet Tottenham Hotspur for a place in the quarter finals.

Cassano missed a great chance after 10 minutes as he fired over when one-on-one with Felgueiras. After 22 minutes Alvarez showed quick feet before steering it through to Palacio: the Argentine looked up and unselfishly rolled the ball square to Guarin to tuck into the empty net and give the Nerazzurri the lead.

The Colombian didn't stop there however: once again Alvarez was involved, picking up the ball after Felgueiras had fumbled, and his pass gave Guarin another straightforward finish. Cluj found themselves a man down, ten minutes from time, as Camora hauled down Benassi when through on goal. Inter also finished the match with only ten men on the field as a muscle injury forced Ranocchia off with a few minutes to play. On 88 minutes Benassi was celebrating his first professional goal as he poked under the advancing Felgueiras, following a delicious ball from Cassano, and made it 3-0 to Inter.

A late equaliser from Tottenham sent them through 3-2 on aggregate over Lyon and the English side will meet the Nerazzurri in the last 16. The first leg will be played at London's White Hart Lane on 7 March.
