Inter squandered their chances and lost their composure after an off-pitch brawl.
Two beautiful battle endings arranged the Champions League Group D victory for Real Madrid, when Inter lost 2-0 in Madrid on Tuesday night.
Toni Kroos and Marco Asensio scored a great goal each in turn.
Inter gave the hosts a good match for a long time. But Real Madrid qualifies for the cup match as the best team in the group, five points behind second-placed Inter.
Only a surprise home loss to young Sheriff Tiraspol in September resulted in the loss of all Whites from the Spanish capital in this group match.
An event far from the defining path became in many ways the path of Inter in the confrontation that they had to win to achieve victory in the group.
– It shouldn’t happen
More than an hour into the match when Real Madrid goalkeeper Eder Militao sent Inter’s Nicolo Parilla to the billboards with a violent push on the side of the pitch.
The visiting midfielder, who was part of Italy’s European Championship-winning side this summer, responded with a kick to Militao’s leg from a lying position off the field.
Judge Clément Turpin received a VAR message on his ear from his assistants about the incident, so there was no prayer for Barilla.

While Militao received the yellow card, there was an early shower on the Inter representative in the hot situation.
– The TV 2 commentator pointed out that the fist in the face should not happen anyway.
He continued, “Talk about losing this situation there, Nicolo Barilla.”
From there, Inter had little to contend with. Real Madrid tied their biggest grip on the match to another player.
And when substitute Marco Asensio played the quarter-finals, the winger did it in the best way.
The 25-year-old took the ball a little inward from the right and pressed it with a really impressive shot into the longest cross.
Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic was completely without a chance to win 2-0.
– Did you see the end of Asensio? Right at the crossroads, praise the commentator.
Kroos in the hook
Inter, who had to win to claim the group win, leapt forward on the field on several occasions in the first 45 minutes.
However, it was the home team that got the net first at the Santiago Bernabeu.
17 minutes into the game, Toni Kroos had a great opportunity to give his team the lead, but the left kick went wide.
The German had enough time and space, and hit the ball into the longest hook behind Handanovics with a straight wrist.
Neither Ivan Perisic nor Lautaro Martinez managed to pay attention to the chances they had before and after the 1-0 goal. This contributed to Inter not getting the result they were hoping for.
