Dzeko double leads Inter temporarily

Posted in: 24/11/2021 – 20:48

        Milan (AFP) - Veteran Inter-Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko scored his team's two goals and led it to victory over its guest Shakhtar Donetsk of Ukraine 2-0 on Wednesday, to temporarily top Group D in the fifth round of the Champions League.        

The Italian champions waited until the second half to net Shakhtar within 6 minutes through the 35-year-old striker in the 61st and 67th minutes.

Inter raised its score to 10 points in first place temporarily, one point behind runner-up Real Madrid, who will visit the third Moldovan Sherif Tiraspol later with 6 points.

And the fate of “Niratsuri” is in the hands of the royal club, as the latter’s victory or a draw with its host will give Inter the pass to the final price.

The Italian champions regained their balance on the continent by defeating Sheriff Tiraspol twice in the previous two rounds, with a total of 6-2 matches, after he started his adventure with a 0-1 loss against Real and a goalless draw against Shakhtar.

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi paid defender Andrea Ranocchia instead of the injured Dutchman Stefan de Vrij, and the Croatian duo Ivan Pericic and Turkish Hakan Calhan Ogulu instead of Federico Demarco and Chilean Arturo Vidal (entered in the 78th minute instead of Nicolo Barilla).

And Dzeko and Argentine Lautaro Martinez (he was replaced by his compatriot Joaquin Correa in the 68th minute) played in the attack.

At the Giuseppe Meazza stadium, Inter dominated the first half without division with its guest, but was unable to open the scoring after a festival of missed opportunities and 15 shots, including 5 on goal, during which the goal of Pericic was canceled for offending his colleague Matteo Darmian (24), and Dzeko’s header was blocked Goalkeeper Anatoly Turpin (27), to intervene once again to take a shot from 30 meters from Calhan Ogulu (30), while international defender Alessandro Bastoni’s shot went past the post (45).

The second half did not differ from the previous one, so the referee canceled a second goal for Inter, scored by Martinis, against the backdrop of paying defender Mikola Matvienko before he kicked the ball (58), but the landowners released the jinx that followed them through Dzeko, who followed a ball from a quick attack to hit the penalty area line with a through ball. In the net (61), to return and add the second header after Pericic manipulated Brazilian defender Dudu on the left arcade and passed a perfect ball to his Bosnian colleague (67), before the Croatian came out in the 86th minute and replaced him with Demarco.

The right-hand post tackled the guest’s most prominent opportunity after a joint game and a shot from Dodo (85), so the referee blew the whistle at the end of the match, announcing that Inter had not lost against Shakhtiar during six confrontations between them in European competitions (two wins against 4 draws) and without conceding his net only once.
