Arnautovic scored in Inter-Atletico Madrid after many chances: «Thanks to the fans»- breaking latest news

Coming in to replace the injured Thuram, Marko Arnautovic decided the Champions League match against Atletico Madrid. A big sigh of relief for him after the many failed opportunities

On the night of the farewell of the Inter fans to Brehme, while the packed stadium boils in anticipation of a feat from the «Thu-La», it is the outsider Marko Arnautovic who keeps the Nerazzurri dream alive. The challenge with the Madrid team is still open, but while waiting for the match at the Civitas Metropolitano on March 13th, it is the Austrian center forward’s push that shifts the balance in favor of the Nerazzurri.

What a night. Inzaghi is happy: «We beat a very technical team, it wasn’t easy. Happy for Marko, Thuram felt the adductor pull: I took it out. For what we created, we deserved something more: it will be a difficult return.” All eyes are on Lautaro, captain and soul of a team that is not satisfied with the hunt for the second star. He could have ended up at Atletico as a boy if Diego Milito hadn’t convinced him to accept Inter’s court. «He doesn’t think about what happened or even what will happen» slyly declares his agent Alejandro Camano, who on the one hand winks at the Nerazzurri and on the other keeps all doors open for the future. In the first half, Toro had at least two chances to give the team the lead but first Oblak and then Gimenez opposed his conclusions.

Then Thuram’s exit due to a right adductor contracture during the break sent chills to the fans in the stands. He is replaced by Marko Arnautovic, who misses three chances in front of goal, one more sensational than the other: half-hearted insults abound. Then, with obstinacy, he looked for the game-breaking goal which arrived in the 79th minute with the collaboration of Lautaro. «I’m sorry for Thuram, but these are my opportunities: to come in and make a difference – the protagonist smiles -. I thank the fans, it’s not an easy moment for me, even against Atletico I was convinced that it would go badly, but in the end the ball went in. In the last few games I struggled but my teammates helped me. Let’s move forward, we created many opportunities but it’s not over. In Madrid it will be a very difficult match: we can win. It was one of the most important goals of my career, we are certainly a very strong group. Those who are outside don’t lower their heads.” Mkhitaryan doesn’t stop: “We want the final.”

Meanwhile, Oaktree is working to extend the 275 million euro loan, expiring in May, to president Steven Zhang. As is known, in 2021, to overcome the financial crisis and the lower income due to the pandemic, the Suning group that controls Inter had secured an agreement to obtain financing on a three-year basis. Now the rumor is that Oaktree is negotiating with Goldman Sachs, Suning’s advisor, to extend the loan. «Zhang’s model has given satisfaction and must be recognized» says CEO Marotta. If the team continues its journey in the Champions League, it is even better.
