2 – 5
Inter Milan vs Schalke
Quite a stunning defeat of the defending champions! I am so bummed I overslept and missed this game L
Looking at the numbers, I think this was a very quick-paced game. Because I overslept and missed the match, I’m imagining that it was like the Bayern Munich vs Inter Milan game in the Round of 16. German-style football vs Italian style football, with the Germans winning this time.
Talk about fast-paced, Inter scored the 1st goal just 1 minute into the game. How did that happen? Was Schalke caught off guard? But good thing they were able to equalize 16 minutes later.
With an “own goal” and a 2nd-yellow-card-send-off in the second half, was this desperation on Inter’s part? It seems like they just caved in to the pressure. And even if Inter were down to 10 men I don’t think this was a factor as it happened at the 62nd minute where all the goals were already scored. More than anything, it would seem that out of desperation, they made more and more mistakes (which maybe Schalke capitalized on).
I am definitely watching the replay of this game.
