Real Madrid 2-0 Inter: Player ratings

    Real Madrid eased past Inter to secure top spot in Champions League Group D on Tuesday night at the Santiago Bernabeu.

    It was a high-quality first half, as two giants of the European game went toe to toe in a worthy setting. Vinicius Junior saw a shot deflected just wide of the post inside two minutes, before Inter began to impose themselves and Marcelo Brozovic’s excellent half-volleyed effort bounced onto the top of the net at the other end.

    The Nerazzurri assumed a degree of control, and Ivan Perisic saw his goal-bound volley blocked by Dani Carvajal. However, Toni Kroos gave the hosts the lead against the run of play five minutes later, collecting a pass from Rodrygo on the edge of the box, shifting the ball onto his weaker left foot and firing the ball crisply across Samir Handanovic and into the bottom corner.

    Perisic and Rodrygo struck the post at each end either side of Luka Jovic lifting the ball into the side-netting when he perhaps should have done better. Rodrygo had another opportunity on the stoke of half-time, but he smashed his shot into the side of the goal too.

    Nicolo Barella spurned an excellent chance to equalise shortly after the break, leaning back and blazing over from inside the penalty area. Jovic then went close to doubling the lead for Los Blancos as he forced a good save from Samir Handanovic ten minutes into the second half.
