In the 24th minute, Perišič’s shot ended up in the net, but the goal did not apply to the offside. Džek eliminated two occasions with excellent interventions by Trubin
At the start of the second half, Inter did not recognize another goal when the referee judged that Martinez had helped himself with a foul. With 61 minutes played, the visitors broke through on the right after some poor defending. Džeko got the ball and was crossed by Trubina. The Bosnian gunner was in a taste and increased to 2 – 0 in the 67th minute, when he was left alone in the back pole. The guests could lower in the end, but Dodo only hit the pole.
Real repaid the sheriff’s shocking home loss 1: 2. Moldova took the lead 20 minutes into the game, making the score 0 – 1 after some elegant movement down the middle. David Alabu was the scorer. Toni Kroos increased the lead to 2 – 0 just before the break.
Karim Benzema added a third goal in the 56th minute In the final round, Real and Inter “will share” the first place in the group at the Santiago Bernabeu.
