Inter 0-2 Real Madrid: Zidane’s men prevail at San Siro, as Vidal sees red

Arturo Vidal-Inter Milan

Inter Milan have been stunned at home by defending La Liga Champions.

Real Madrid have defeated Inter Milan 2-0 at San Siro as Arturo Vidal sees a red card in the first half.

The game was crucial for Nerazzurri to keep their Champions League dreams alive however they got off to the worst start.

Karim Benzema was brought down in the box and as a result, a penalty was awarded to Los Blancos. Eden Hazard stepped up to the plate and converted it successfully. Madrid nearly had their second goal of the game as Lucas Vazquez hit the frame of the goal.

Arturo Vidal was sent off for his rude argument with the referee, thus reducing Inter to ten men.

The Italians’ struggles continued in the second half as Zinedine Zidane’s men doubled their lead around the hour mark. Rodrygo’s strike took a big touch from Achraf Hakimi before it went to the nets.

Inter failed to create hardly any big chances during the game as their winless run continued in the Champions League.

Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku have been quiet for the whole game as they couldn’t inspire Inter unlike the majority of Serie A games this season.

Antonio Conte’s Champions League round of 16 hopes are jeopardy for the second straight season as Inter are currently bottom of their group.

Meanwhile, Madrid have steadied their ship by winning both the legs against Nerazzurri, and they are currently second in the table behind Borussia Monchengladbach.
