The home team won by 2 to 1 and started the league with great result
Playing at Giuseppe Meazza, Internazionale received Tottenham for the other Group B match of the competition. Returning to the continental competition after six years, the Milan team managed a historic turnaround against the Spurs by the score of 2 to 1. In most of the duel, the Pochettino team dominated but did not kill the game. So, it ended up paying dearly, and even coming out ahead with Eriksen suffered the upset. Icardi and Vecino did.
The first stage ended up being disputed, but with the best chances of Tottenham, who did not take advantage of them. Thus, the teams were zeroed for the break.
In the second half, the willing Spurs were able to open the scoring in the eighth minute with Eriksen, in the offside, who deflected defender Miranda and covered goalkeeper Handanovic. After the goal, Tottenham continued dominating the match, and having the best opportunities, even getting one more with Son. However, the flag canceled, indicating an impediment.
The clearest chances of the confrontation continued being of the English team. What was lacking was to enjoy the finals, to set the score. Handanovic continued being the great prominence of the Italians, who produced little, even playing at home.
Attempting at least the equalizer, the Nerazurri threw themselves into everything and got in the 41st minute of the second half. In the cross from Asamoah’s left, Icardi made a beautiful shot from outside the area, leaving everything the same.
There would still be time for a turn. After a corner kick, De Virj set up for Vecino to score and complete the party in Milan. At the final whistle, the players celebrated with the fans as the victory against the English can give a lot of moral in the sequence of the competition. There could be no better return to the Champions League for the team led by Luciano Spalletti.
