Cameroon’s Andre Onana and Inter Milan, secured a semi-final spot ticket in Benfica on Tuesday 11th, in the quarter-finals of the European Champions League.
The boys of coach Simone Inzaghi had an extraordinary performance, but Benfica did not finish thanks to Barella and Lukaku’s two goals.
Benfica struggle to dictate play in front of their home fans , as Inter portrayed an excellent defensive masterclass in Lisbon.
The Portuguese-born Rafa Silva was denied by Andre Onana’s first- half save before, Inter’s sweeper Denzel Dumfties produced a crucial block from close range as Benfica pushed for a leveler.
The visitors picked a solid victory, when substitute Romelu Lukaku, on loan from Chelsea, scored from the spot after former Inter Joao Mario handled.
Barella’s scintillating net came after an excellent cross by Alessandro Bastoni, with the Italian midfielder heading it back across the keeper and into the net.
There was still time for Benfica to reduce the deficit but Goncalo Ramo’s 88th minutes attempt, was kept out by Andre Onana who has kept six clean sheets in nine games.
