Inter fell to a late 1-0 defeat to Real Madrid in their opening match of Group D in the Champions League at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Wednesday.

A tight match with few clear cut chances was settled in the dying minutes as Eduardo Camavinga’s cross was rifled home by Rodrygo to leave Inter stunned.

Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez were both denied by Thibaut Courtois early on, whilst Marcelo Brozovic came close with a fizzing shot from the edge of the box. Eder Militao squandered Real Madrid’s best chance in the first half meanwhile, as he headed wide when free from a corner.

Inter came close as Dzeko met a corner after the break, whilst Milan Skriniar could not get the ball out of his feet to apply a finish from close range. Skriniar produced two wonderful blocks to deny Vinicius Junior and just as it appeared to be heading for a stalemate, Rodrygo’s well-taken finish sealed the points for the Spanish club.
