Lukaku scored Inter Milan beat Ludogorets to book their place in the last 16 of the Europa League

 Inter Milan 2-1 Ludogorets (Agg. 4-1)

Romelu Lukaku scored as Inter Milan booked their place in the last 16 of the Europa League with a 4-1 aggregate win over Ludogorets.

The last-32 second leg was played behind closed doors at San Siro Stadium because of the threat of coronavirus.

Cauly opened the scoring for the Bulgarian side, before Cristiano Biraghi and Lukaku put Inter 2-1 up.

The Ludogorets players and staff arrived at the stadium wearing medical face masks, as they had done on the way to their hotel on Wednesday, and were 2-0 down from the first leg against Antonio Conte’s men.

Brazilian midfielder Cauly put the visitors in front on 26 minutes with his first goal for the club to level the tie, holding off Diego Godin’s challenge to score off the underside of the bar.

Six minutes later it was all square as former Tottenham man Christian Eriksen sent a through ball to Biraghi to squeeze in at the near post.

On the stroke of half-time Lukaku gave Inter a 2-1 lead – not that the Belgian knew much about it.
