Dogged Inter cling on


IT wasn’t pretty, but Inter ground out a goalless draw in Portugal to make the last eight 1-0 on aggregate.

In a match where chances were at a premium, the Italians set their stall out to defend the lead given to them by Romelu Lukaku in the first leg — and it worked. Porto’s best chance came three minutes into second half injury-time as tension inside the Estadio do Dragao grew. After a scramble, Ivan Marcano’s shot was superbly scrambled off the line by Denzel Dumfries. Porto’s night got even worse when Pepe was then sent off for a second booking.
