Bayern Munich, put into orbit by Leroy Sané, made their debut on the right foot in the Champions League on Wednesday by beating Inter (2-0) at San Siro, who will struggle to win this round. counting FC Barcelona. The German champion has dispelled the doubts arising from his two league draws, asphyxiating an increasingly losing Milan, after the defeat in the derby against Milan (2-3) on Saturday. In this borrowed Inter defense, the fast Leroy Sané went all too quickly to score the first goal across the board (25th), then tormented the Nerazzurri on the second and pushed Danilo D’Ambrosio, scorer against his field ( 66 °). Bayern, before receiving Barça in a week, appeared at home at San Siro with this fourth win in four European games in Inter’s lair. Like his fans who, with so many smoke bombs, still colored the south curve red, like the Milan fans last Saturday.
In the door of Inter, the surprise guest of the day André Onana did what he could for his first official appearance in the Nerazzurri, preferring captain Samir Handanovic in a composition extensively reworked by coach Simone Inzaghi in an attempt to shake off his team. men. Nicolò Barella and Stefan De Vrij, other usual owners, were on the bench at kick-off. Against the Bayern army, still impressive despite Robert Lewandowski’s farewell, with Mané, Coman, Müller and Sané, Onana was given a full-bodied baptism. Quickly tested on two low shots by Joshua Kimmich (3rd, 4th), the Cameroonian goalkeeper was then flawless on Thomas Müller’s many attempts (9th, 23rd, 24th).
De Ligt and Hernandez whistled
But under the increasing pressure of Bayern, the flaws widen in front of him and Leroy Sané, launched by Kimmich, rushes to open the scoring after eliminating the goalkeeper in one on one (25th). The Inter defense almost cracked again on a triple chance ended by a too cross shot by Marcel Sabitzer (37th). Inter, for their part, struggled to get their heads out of the water. Lautaro Martinez did not score his best chance (6th), D’Ambrosio shot too slowly (17th). Edin Dzeko had two good chances, on a header (35th) then a too soft shot (50th), but he also multiplied the wrong choices on the front line, without forgetting the conspicuous absent Romelu Lukaku, injured.
Apart from a slightly sharper start to the second half, Inter have only too rarely worried Bayern’s central defender held firmly by Matthijs De Ligt and Lucas Hernandez, undoubtedly the two men most booed by San Siro: the first by ex Turin, the second as the brother of the Rossoneri defender Theo Hernandez. Bayern, without panic, regain control of the game in the second half and logically double the bet, after a number of Leroy Sané and Kingsley Coman, whose double brace ends with the goal against his field of D’Ambrosio . Inter, the last Italian club to win the Champions League in 2010 by beating Bayern in the final, have been able to measure the gap that has since widened with the German champion.
