Europa League: Inter set up Sevilla final after thrashing Shakhtar

When Shakhtar did manage to put together a long string of passes towards half-time, it was concluded by Marcos Antonio firing just over from the D. Lautaro Martinez almost doubled his tally after the restart, catching defenders in possession and immediately unleashing a lob, but Pyatov at full stretch managed to claw it out of the empty net. Romelu Lukaku curled just wide of the far post, but Shakhtar had their first real chance on 62 minutes when Junior Moraes aimed a header straight at Samir Handanovic, who made an instinctive save from close range. However, Inter doubled their lead moments later, as a Marcelo Brozovic corner found Danilo D’Ambrosio from six yards, barely even jumping, as he just steered the header back across into the far top corner. Lukaku wasted a promising opportunity, but it was only a warning for Inter’s third goal. It was Brozovic who won back the ball with the high press this time, Lukaku and Roberto Gagliardini combining to set up Lautaro for a lovely curled finish low into the far bottom corner from the edge of the area. The Argentine could’ve gone for a hat-trick after skipping past three defenders, but instead he placed a wonderful disguised pass through for Lukaku, who fired in the angled drive with his left foot for 4-0. It was another record, his 10th consecutive Europa League game on target.

Alexis Sanchez made a rapid recovery for a spot on the bench, but Matias Vecino was out, while Shakhtar had Davit Khocholava back from suspension. Inter broke through with practically the first chance of the game after a cagey start. Nicolò Barella’s pressing saw him intercept a loose ball, burst down the right and whip in a cross for the glancing Lautaro Martinez header, his first goal in the Europa League this season. The Argentine did well to get in front of Serhiy Kryvtsov. There were three Inter players flinging themselves at a cross from the left and still couldn’t get it in the net, although at least one was eventually offside.last_img read more

Additionally, the Bruins edged the Trojans in blocks (10.5 to 6.0) and aces (8 to 0).The Trojans started off the first set nicely, up 4-3, but that lead quickly became a 10-5 deficit. Although they recovered with a nice dig by Douglas midway through the set, it was too little, too late. The Bruins took the first set 25-18.In the second set, the Trojans kept pace early. At one point the two teams were tied at 8 apiece, but the Bruins went on to win 3 of the next 4 points to burst out in front, 12-9.

Later, trailing by 13-9, Benesh and freshman Lucas Lossone put up some clutch blocks to pull the Trojans within striking distance. Yoder continued to keep the Trojans alive with some nice kills, but on match point, down 17-24, a UCLA spike deflected off a Trojan and into the crowd. The Bruins swept the Trojans, 3-0.USC now faces an uphill battle as it hopes to make the MPSF conference tournament. However, two out of the team’s final three matches are at home. They finish with UC Santa Barbara and Cal-Baptist at the Galen Center and Cal-Baptist on the road. The Trojans have played well at home this year, going 6-4 after the loss to UCLA tonight. If they can win two more games at home down the stretch, their chances at the conference tournament should be solid.The Trojans will take on UCSB at the Galen Center on Friday at 7 p.m.last_img read more
