Pablo Rosario’s 27th minute goal against Internazionale on MD2 of the 2018-19 Champions League is the only goal that PSV have scored in 270 minutes of competitive action versus the Italian side.

PSV are winless in 12 Champions League away games (D3 L9), losing each of the last four in a row by an aggregate score of 2-12.

PSV have faced more shots than any other side in the Champions League this season (121). They’ve faced at least 21 shots in all five of their matches so far.

Luuk de Jong has scored each of PSV’s last three Champions League goals. The only players to score four consecutive goals for the Dutch side in the competition were Danny Koevermans in 2008 and Ruud van Nistelrooy in 1998.

Inter Milan attempted 24 shots against PSV on MD2 of the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League; the most they have attempted in a match in this competition since November 2010.

Internazionale haven’t lost any of their last 10 European fixtures against Dutch sides (W7 D3 L0), with their last defeat in a game against opponents from the Netherlands coming in April 2002 versus Feyenoord at home (0-1).

Inter have lost two of their last five Champions League home group stage games (W2 D1), as many as they had in their previous 21 at the San Siro (W15 D4 L2).

MILAN - Our journey in the Champions League came to an end against PSV on Tuesday evening, as Inter pushed right up until the very end but were ultimately unable to reach the last 16.

We started the match extremely strongly, with Asamoah firing in a dangerous cross in the fourth minute before Perisic then headed onto Zoet’s post soon after. It was then D’Ambrosio who had a chance, as the full-back just missed the target with a header. However, the Nerazzurri were stopped in their tracks come the 13th minute, as Bergwin capitalised on a lost ball from Asamoah and teed up Lozano to head home at the back post. With Inter still unsettled, Handanovic was then on hand to keep out a good chance from De Jong in the following stages. The home side soon composed themselves and Politano played in Mauro Icardi for his first sniff of goal in the 21st minute, although the Captain could only head over. As the first half came to a close, Bergwin first forced Handanovic into a stinging save in the 37th minute, as the Slovenian shot-stopper turned the ball out for a corner. The teams then headed into the break, with the Nerazzurri well aware that a response was duly needed after the interval.

 

The second half began with a miraculous save from Zoet, who managed to deny Icardi following Borja Valero’s lovely through ball. The miss affected Inter, who struggled to find any rhythm up front for a good few minutes after that. A superb challenge from Skriniar then sparked a quick counter-attack as the San Siro crowd roared the team forward. It ended with Zoet pushing Politano’s strike out for a corner. Life had been breathed into Inter: following this, Keita whipped the ball in for Icardi, who then knocked it down for Borja Valero. The Spaniard’s shot was too weak to really trouble PSV’s goal, however.  Keita was causing the away side problems, but he couldn’t beat Zoet from outside the area after breaking free from  an opposition player. The Dutch side’s goal was leading a charmed life: a shot from Icardi was deflected behind for a corner, before PSV’s no. 1 comfortably saved De Vrij’s effort. Spalletti then tried to shake things up by bringing on Lautaro Martinez, with Perisic being moved to full-back. The team responded: Politano’s magnificent cross was met by Icardi at the far post and Inter were level. But a draw wasn’t going to be sufficient: Inter had no option but to push for the win, although they were quite wayward in their attempts to find a second goal. Keita had a good effort following Perisic’s assist, but it wasn’t enough to find the back of the net. The Nerazzurri then had a final chance to win it, but Lautaro headed over from close range. Thanks to Tottenham’s draw at Camp Nou, Inter will have to settle for a place in the Europa League.

Now and forever, #ForzaInter!
