Inter 0-1 Real Madrid: Brazilian star substitute Rodrygo snatches late winner

Brazilian star substitute Rodrygo Goes snatches late winner for Carlo Ancelotti’s side in tight encounter as Simone Inzaghi’s men rue missed chances

  • Real Madrid beat Inter 1-0 win away in their opening Champions League match
  • Brazilian Rodrygo Goes, 20, scored Madrid’s winner in the 89th minute 
  • Both sides created several chances but Inter did not make theirs count

The 20-year-old, who now has seven goals in 17 Champions League matches, came on with 25 minutes to go and combined with new teenage star signing Eduardo Camavinga to strike home a volley in the 89th minute.

That goal proved to be the difference between the two sides in an evenly-matched encounter. Inter created several decent chances but were unable to make any of them count, thanks in part to some excellent work from Thibaut Courtois in the Real Madrid goal.

Real Madrid secured a crucial 1-0 win away at Inter in their opening Champions League game
