Inter and Manchester United are the first semi-finalists in the Europa League this season. The two greats went through completely different paths to move forward, but eventually fulfilled their goal and took a step forward in the tournament in which they are considered favorites.The Italians eliminated Bayer (Leverkusen) after 2: 1 in front of the empty stands of “Mercury Spielarena”, where the hosts play Fortuna (Dusseldorf) and the third division Yurdingen. The Nerazzurri took a 1-0 lead after a quarter of an hour when a patiently organized attack ended with a goal by Nicola Barella. Lautaro Martinez played with a fifth long pass on the flank, Ashley Young found Romelu Lukaku, who was busy and shot, and the ball hit Barrela and he opened with a shot with an external rebate for 1: 0. Six minutes later, the tested combination worked and Young passed again to Lukaku, who this time with a defender on his back managed to score for 2-0. Kai Haverz returned a goal for the “aspirins” probably in his last match for the club – 2: 1 in the 24th minute, as the Germans never managed to score again.In the rest of the match, VAR twice canceled penalties for Inter, in the first case Lukaku was already on the white spot. In the last seconds of the match, the exercise was repeated, and then Lukaku was injured again after his goal at the very end was canceled.
