They are both very, very young.  Inter has suffered the veteran defense in the league which is not easy to score against but Carles is also a player who has goals in his blood and as for Ansu, he is a born goalscorer.

He also said, “We are very happy that one of the youngest players to have scored in champions League is our player and especially he is the one who has come to the team through our youth system.”

Antonio Conte, the coach for Inter said, “You can clearly see from the group rankings that we played very hard till the end despite it being one of the most difficult groups of Champions League this year. We are very disappointed to have been forced out of the league because we had the chance to advance.”

The only goal scored by the Inter Milan was from Danilo D’Ambrosio during the 5th minute of 1st half but the game was equalized shortly after following a goal from Lukaku.

Barcelona was then able to gain the 2-1 lead over Inter during the 23rd minute after the defender of Inter Milan named Diego Godin was only able to knock pout Antoine Griezmann who had passed the ball at that point to Perez.
