Absolutely dominant performance. It’s sucks we didn’t put this tie to bed in the first leg, but that’s football. It’s a shame that so many key chances fell to Arnautovic. But he stayed alive and was rewarded for it with some cosmic grace. Lautaro finishing was also terrible, which didn’t help. *sigh* we will need another Herculean effort in Madrid but it was always going to be that way more likely than not.

Masterclass from Inzaghi, we didn’t give them shit and created a lot. He’s the real deal as a coach, I think everyone is seeing that now. Hope we can keep him at inter long term.

Thuram looked like a groin injury, how long do those usually take?

Nice win, played great but a shame we didn't score at least a 2nd.
Depends on grade. 2 weeks to 3 months

I think he`ll be alright. My guess is 2 weeks.

Could’ve easily won 3-0. I’m afraid wasting chances is Inter’s chronic disease. Dumfries should always be the starter and not Darmian.

I have some confidence in our backup strikers performing in this game; just some feelings
I normally don't leave these stupid predictions, but I really felt like it is a game for them to strive, like the reason could be even when they dwell on the ball, it is not like Serie A, that is gets harder, and could even better use of the opponents' momentum.

What a match.

So many polar performances, which is not good enough. Mikhi was mostly shit, Darmian was mostly shit, Calha "as good if not better than Rodri" noglu was mostly shit, Lautaro was mostly shit.

Bastoni, Pavard and Barella were monsters. Carlos Agusto had much more fizz when he came on.

Dumfries has earned his place back. Enough, please.

Arna... well what can you say. Atrocious, but well done lad for the mentality to keep trying despite herculean pressure.

We should have scored more but unfortunately had a bad game in the final third. Martinez should have passed to Dumfries but Arnau was finally lucky to have scored there. We missed too many chances!!!!

Hopefully, Thuram injury is not serious.

Barella had a very good game, along with Dumfries, Augusto as subs.

We should play much better and clinical in the away game if we are to qualify further. Return leg will be a tough one, especially the way we failed in the final third today.

This team is simply performing like one of the elite top teams of Europe. Defence is a rock, no mistakes, gameplay just perfect and difficult to stop. All players know what they are doing, it's exactly what we wanted after reaching the final last year. And thats also thanks to the addition of new players like Pavard that brings you a lot of experience, but also some quality on the bench like Augusto and Frattesi. The only thing i can't understand is how we are still not capable of taking our chances, we should have won AT LEAST 3-0 today, if only they could improve this.... It will get a problem if we are playing against Real or City, you won't have much chances to score. Having also only 2 top strikers is a problem, as we saw today. Arnautovic is simply not good enough, not even for the bench..

Dumfries must start in spain when we will play on counters..
Well, ideally our wingbacks should be Dimarco/ Augusto and Dumfries/Darmian.

Limone did take Mikhi out only because he had a previous yellow so another yellow makes him miss the return game.
Good minutes from Fratesssi anyway. Him and the wingers gave us some good energy.

I think what separates us from the elites IS the fact that we don't take our chances.

You can't be an elite team when you need 4 or 5 clear chances to score.
