A goal in minute 89 from the Brazilian Rodrygo Goes A pass from Frenchman Eduardo Camavinga knocked down Inter Milan’s defensive wall on Wednesday and hit the Real Madrid a valuable 0-1 win at the San Siro, in their debut in the group stage of the Champions League 2021-22.

Rodrygo jumped onto the field after the game hour to replace Lucas Vázquez, with Belgian Eden Hazard on the bench and no minutes, and unbalanced an intense, even game, in which both teams alternated in command of the game, which ended with the thirteen-time European champion clinching all three points to lead group D alongside surprise Sheriff Tiraspol.

From Vinicius to Rodrygo. On a night in which “Vini” returned to give class details and spark Real Madrid even in the most suffering moments, but without scoring, she was the other Brazilian jewel of the white team to illuminate the Milanese night.

Rodrygo and before the goal Thibaut Courtois, the protagonist with a long series of worthy saves, especially in a first half in which Inter put Ancelotti’s defensive couple, formed by the Austrian David Alaba with Nacho Fernández, in great trouble , and came to finish up to thirteen times towards the rival goal.

Carlo Ancelotti, who sat Hazard throughout the game, was not satisfied with his team. Interista aggressiveness, in particular with the centers of Croatian Ivan Perisic and Nicoló Barella, put the Madrid centralists in trouble.

The Whites, who had won back and forth last year against Inter, also in the group stage, shook off rival dominance at the restart, while the Milanese ran out of gas.

The Bosnian Edin Dzeko and the Argentine Lautaro Martínez, the most dangerous of Inter, were unable to bring down the Courtois wall and little by little the quality and electricity of the Madrid trident emerged.

The coaches tried to mix the cards and it was Ancelotti who found the key, with Camavinga, on his Champions League debut, and Rodrygo who created the decisive action to leave Milan with the three points.

The Frenchman gave an elegant assist in the area to Rodrygo, who struck down Slovenian goalkeeper Samir Handanovic with a neat cross shot with his left leg.

It was the 89th minute and Real Madrid, who in the last twenty had repeatedly run into the Interista defense, in particular with a Slovak Milan Skriniar, who repelled a very dangerous shot from Vinicius, collapsed the wall.

The Milanese only had one attempt at an epic comeback, but their options ran out in the third minute of added time, with a center in which even Handanovic sought glory, without success.

The European Cup of Real Madrid kicks off with a victory of great international prestige, which seeks to regain the scepter of the king after falling in the semifinals last year against Chelsea, ultimately champions.
