Inter will take a 1-0 lead to Spain following the Austrian's 78th-minute goal


A goal from Marko Arnautovic secured victory for Inter in their first-leg round of 16 clash against Atletico Madrid. At an extraordinarily loud San Siro, which paid tribute to Andreas Brehme before kick-off, Inzaghi’s men dominated the match for long periods, playing some very attacking football against a tough Atletico side who deployed a defensive 5-4-1 formation.

The Nerazzurri really upped the pressure after the break, with both Lautaro and Arnautovic, who had replaced Thuram (a muscle problem for the Frenchman) at half-time, coming close on several occasions. Oblak was finally beaten in the 78th minute: Lautaro saw his effort saved by the goalkeeper, but Arnautovic was there to convert on the follow-up. The Nerazzurri will thus take a narrow lead to Madrid for the second leg, which is scheduled for 13 March.
