Real Madrid yesterday served their chances of qualifying to the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League with a massive boost as they defeated Inter Milan 2-0 in Italy to go second in Group B.
Former Chelsea star, Eden Hazard opened the scoring in the 7th minute via a penalty before Hakim Achraf conceded an own goal in the second half to put Madrid in the comfortable zone. Zidane’s men are now just a point behind Borussia M’gladbach who lead the group with 8 points.

They have also been joined by Manchester City who defeated Olympiakos Piraeus by a lone goal courtesy a Phil Foden strike.
It is also worth noting that all of yesterday’s fixtures began with the observance of a minute silence for Diego Maradona who passed away yesterday aged 60.
