Player ratings as Nerazzurri set up all-Milan semi-final
Inter Milan secured a place in the Champions League semi-finals after holding onto their aggregate lead against Benfica on Wednesday night, setting up a meeting with city rivals AC Milan. The Nerazzurri won 2-0 in the first leg and added to their commanding advantage with an early goal by Nicolo Barella at San Siro. Despite a glimmer of hope from Benfica’s Fredrik Aursnes shortly before half-time, Inter extended their lead with goals from Lautaro Martinez and Joaquin Correa in the second half. Even a late flurry of goals from Benfica’s Antonio Silva and Petar Musa did not dent Inter’s lead. The Italian giants will meet in European competition for the first time since the 2004/05 season, and the pairing guarantees a first Italian finalist in the Champions League since Juventus in 2017. The other semi-final will see Real Madrid take on Manchester City. Federico Dimarco was named the player of the match for Inter.
