Champions League: Lukaku scores a brace as Inter Milan draw with Borussia Monchengladbach

Another day, another Romelu Lukaku goal for Inter Milan

Romelu Lukaku rescued Inter Milan by scoring a 90th-minute equaliser against Borussia Monchengladbach in their opening Champions League Group B game.

The Nerazzurri have begun their European journey with a home draw, as they did against Slavia Prague in 2019.

In the 2019 edition, Barella drew Antonio Conte’s men level but this time, Romelu Lukaku took centre stage after also initially giving his side the lead.

After a goalless first half, Belgium forward Lukaku put Inter ahead from close range with his eighth goal in eight games for club and country.

It was a match that almost got away from Inter, despite the fact that Borussia Mönchengladbach only had two shots on target throughout, resulting in two goals.

But  Lukaku had the last word when he managed to scramble the ball home at the far post with his knee after a corner was headed on by substitute Alessandro Bastoni.
