Inter 2-5 Schalke

Frustrating game. Home advantage. Early goal. But then we fell apart. It was a terrible performance that was utterly despicable really. Herein you will find some noteworthy points concerning Inter, both positive and negative.

Stankovic. Unbelievable early goal from a half-field volley while the keeper was caught off his line.

Milito. Now returned from injury, scored a goal.

Chivu. Double yellow. He’s all done for the next two games due to his Serie A sending off this past weekend.

Ranocchia. Own goal. Embarrassing. It happens, but embarrassing nonetheless.

César. Good job in goal. Too bad his defensive line forgot to show up to the game today.

We really need to buckle down in the defensive end. But our Champions League run is over. We would have to score 6 goals next week to advance, and I sincerely doubt we are capable of such a feat.

Real Madrid 4-0 Tottenham

Real Madrid took care of business today in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, beating Tottenham Hotspurs 4-nil. Adebayor netted a couple of headers. Di Maria had a beautiful far post side net goal. Ronaldo scored on his return from injury. Not a bad performance. While they have to go to England next week, it seems that this matchup is already determined. Real Madrid seem extremely likely to go on to the semis.
