Inter Milan vs Bayer Leverkusen: Lukaku fires Inter to Europa League semifinal

Two first-half goals from Nicolo Barella and Romelu Lukaku were all Inter Milan needed to secure their passage to the semifinals of the Europa League.
The Italian League giants defeated their German League opponent Bayet the Merkur Spiel-Arena on Monday, July 10. Barella needed just 15 minutes before finding the back of the net after spinning the ball into the left bottom corner of the post.
Lukas Hradecky saved Lukaku's initial effort from crossing his goal line before the 23-year-old powered the ball into the back of the net.
The Serie A giants continued to mount pressure on their opponent and they broke-through six minutes after their opening goal. 
Lukaku finally got his chance to register his name on the scores sheet in the 21st minute from close range despite being heavily marked by his opponents. While he was trying to shield the ball, he marked by two players but just before he could fall down, he managed to put the ball in-between the keeper's legs to double his side's lead. Meanwhile, Chelsea's target Kai Havertz continued his impressive run for his Bundesliga side after reducing their deficit in the 25th minute
