Inter Milan 2-0 Getafe: Romelu Lukaku and Christian Eriksen secure quarter-final spot

Romelu Lukaku scored his 30th goal in all competitions for Inter Milan this season with his opener against Getafe

Goals from Romelu Lukaku and Christian Eriksen saw Inter Milan beat Getafe to reach the Europa League quarter-finals.

Former Manchester United striker Lukaku, 27, slotted into the bottom corner from Alessandro Bastoni's pass.

Getafe's Jorge Molina dragged a second-half penalty wide after a video assistant referee review found Diego Godin handled a cross into the box.

Subsitute Eriksen was on the pitch for barely a minute before punishing Djene Dakonam's poor clearance late on.

Inter will face either Bayer Leverkusen or Rangers in the final eight, with the German side leading 3-1 on aggregate.

The match was played as a one-off tie in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, after the first leg was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It is the first time Inter, who recorded their best league season since 2010-11 as they finished as runners-up to Juventus in Serie A, have reached the quarter-final of a major European competition since the 2010-11 Champions League.

Lukaku's strike means the Belgian has now scored in his last eight Europa League matches, equalling former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer's record in the competition formerly known as the Uefa Cup.

Inter are set to complete the permanent signing of Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez - brought on as a second half substitute against Getafe - in the next 24 hours and expect to have him available for their Europa League 'final eight' tie in Germany.
