UCL: Martinez scores as Inter Milan book final spot after 13 years
Inter Milan eased into the Champions League final with a 3-0 aggregate victory over AC Milan as Lautaro Martinez’s goal sealed a 1-0 second-leg win over their rivals at the San Siro.
Three-time winners Inter will now face either Real Madrid or Manchester City in Istanbul on June 10 in their first final appearance since 2010, when they beat Bayern Munich to lift the trophy.
Striker Martinez sealed their passage, beating AC Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan with an angled finish in the 74th minute at a raucous San Siro, with Inter the designated home side at the stadium they share with their rivals having triumphed 2-0 as the away team in last week’s first leg.
