Inter and Borussia Monchengladbach leveled the scores


Inter and Borussia Monchengladbach leveled the scores

Belgium forward Lukaku put Inter ahead from close range with his eighth goal in eight games for club and country after a goalless first half.

But from the penalty spot, Monchengladbach’s Ramy Bensebaini leveled after Arturo Vidal lunged into Marcus Thuram inside the box.

The referee initially waved play on after Vidal’s challenge before stopping the game moments later and pointing to the spot after watching a replay of the incident on a pitchside screen.

Before Jonas Hofmann kept his composure to fire the German visitors ahead after sprinting clear, Inter substitute Lautaro Martinez hit the bar.

In an enthralling encounter, Lukaku had the last word when he managed to scramble the ball home at the far post with his knee after a corner was headed on by substitute Alessandro Bastoni.
