The Derbi Della Madonnina left us with intense emotions from start to finish. However, Inter, a team in very good form at this stage of the season, managed to prevail to take a 1-0 victory, this time playing as a local in the San Siro, to seal its qualification for the UEFA Champions League Grand Final.

Milan’s 0-2 deficit going into the second leg was extremely difficult to overcome. However, hope is the last thing to be lost, and, in addition, the Rossoneri could also count on Rafael Leao in their starting XI, who is by far the team’s best player this season.

Everything started balanced, as both teams were trying to make as few mistakes as possible, as they knew that a place in the final of the Champions League was at stake. Milan owned the ball throughout the match (57% of possession) but could not convert any of their scoring chances. In addition, it is worth noting that they only had one shot on goal, which is undoubtedly a credit to the Neroazurri’s defense.

After a 0-0 draw in the first half, Inter came out to propose a slightly more offensive game in the second half, and, in the 74th minute, the Argentine Lautaro Martinez was able to score the goal that gave his team the victory. They qualified for the Champions League final after more than ten years with this result and the 2-0 win in the first leg.

Manchester City crushed Real Madrid 4-0 to move one step closer to the title

Many predictions did not fail in this match, as after watching the first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, there was no doubt that Manchester City was far superior to Real Madrid in this series. Although the match in Madrid ended 1-1, everything pointed to Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City side going all out at the Etihad Stadium, and they did just that.

In an authentic demonstration of good soccer, the Citizens crushed an unrecognizable White House with a 4-0 scoreline. From the start of the match, we could all see that this could end in one of two ways. It could be a tragedy for the locals or an announced death from the visitors.

Manchester City, with the help of Bernardo Silva (scorer of two goals in this match), Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish, and Rodrigo, managed to do to Real Madrid something they do in every Premier League match, crush their rivals. Silva completed The Citizens’ siege with goals in the 23′ and 37′ minutes.

In the second half, the Merengues focused more on the match and came close to scoring. However, the locals regained possession and, in the 76′ minute, scored again thanks to Eder Militao. Finally, with the 3-0 lead behind them, the Whites dropped their arms, and Manchester City killed them off with Julian Alvarez’s goal in the 90+1′ minute.
