With his goal against Milan, Edin Dzeko became one of the oldest players to score in a Champions League semi-final.
Inter Milan are in very high form recently, they are on a streak of 5 consecutive victories in all competitions. The Nerazzurri away from home is also very impressive. They have won all of the last 4 trips, each match has scored 2 or more goals. In particular, in those 4 trips, Inter kept a clean sheet at home.
Impressive results help them show confidence in their trip to Milan in the first leg of the 2022/23 Champions League semi-final. Right in the 8th minute of the match, the away team took the lead through Edin Dzeko’s goal.
From the corner on the left wing, Dzeko kicked a high-class one-touch ball into the net of Milan. The extremely fast kick of the former Man City star made the Milan goalkeeper just stand and watch the ball fly into the net. Dzeko (37 years and 54 days) became the second oldest player to score in a Champions League semi-final, after Ryan Giggs (37 years and 148 days in April 2011).
Edin Dzeko has now become Inter’s top scorer in the Champions League this season, he has just scored his fourth goal, one more than Barella and Romelu Lukaku.
3 minutes later the visitors got their second goal. From Dimarco’s down the line and in on the left wing, Mkhitaryan picked up the ball in the middle, burst into the box and then launched a decisive kick in the face to beat the keeper. Maignan.
Mkhitaryan scored his second goal in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League – his first came in February 2014. 2-0 was also the score after the first 45 minutes.
