Round of 16 - the second leg
Summary: Inter - Spezia 1:2 (Sport1)
The Champions League Round of 16 second leg matches continue tonight (Tuesday) as Inter try to complete the task, with a 0:1 advantage over Porto from a Romelu Lukaku goal from the first meeting between the clubs, and qualify for the quarterfinals for the first time since the 2010/11 season.
The Dragons are hosting the Nerazzurri and after successfully knocking out Juventus and Roma in the knockout stage in recent years, they aim to continue their positive balance against Italian teams tonight as well on the way to the last eight of Europe.
Sergio Concessão has to manage without Otavio who was sent off at the San Siro, and in his place Pepe Aquino, Avnielson and Hedi Tarmi will look to force at least extra time in the battle for the quarter-finals.
On the other hand, Simona Inzaghi decided to leave the scorer of the winning goal in the first game, Romelu Lukaku, on the bench, with Edin Dzeko again on the edge next to Lautro Martinez.
Federico DiMarco and Denzel Dumfries started on the wings.
Without Milan Schriniar remaining on the bench, the Italian coach went with Matteo Darmian, Francesco Accerbi and Alessandro Bastoni in the defensive trio.
