Inter Milan hardly had any sight of the ball as Zidane’s side kept possession easily with Lucas Vasquez rattling the post once. Inter Milan’s sorrows kept on adding as Arturo Vidal was shown a red card after a fight with the referee over a potential penalty.

He was shown two yellow cards and off he went restricting Inter Milan to 10 men.

Second Half

Both teams looked to make changes as Zidane brought on Rodrigo and Antonio Conte brought in Ivan Perisic. The Nerazzuri did try and make a comeback but that was crushed as Rodrigo secured a goal seconds after coming on.

Lucas Vasquez’s cross is deflected off Hakimi and is actually being registered as an own goal by UEFA. Hazard did have a wonderful chance to make it 3-0 but was unable to do so.

Ivan Perisic came close to scoring a compensation goal for the hosts but fired wide. Thibaut Courtois was called into action late in the match but managed to keep his clean sheet.
