Inter Milan play out a 2-2 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach.

Romelu Lukaku scored twice, including a 90th-minute equaliser, to give Inter Milan a 2-2 draw at home to Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League where five shots on target produced four goals.

The Belgian put Inter in front with an opportunist goal in the 49th minute but the Bundesliga side levelled in the 63rd with their first shot on target, a penalty converted by Ramy Bensebaini.

Gladbach’s second and only other shot on target also produced a goal as Jonas Hofmann put them ahead in the 84th minute before Lukaku pulled Inter level, scoring in his ninth consecutive European game.

Christian Eriksen, benched for Saturday’s derby against AC Milan, started for Inter, who were missing six players who had tested positive for Covid-19 in the last two weeks.

There was precious little excitement in the first half as Inter battled to break down Gladbach’s defence where Nico Elvedi was outstanding.

Inter had the last laugh when a corner was headed on by Alessandro Bastoni – recovered from Covid-19 – and Lukaku forced it into the net at the far post.
