Argentinian Lautaro Martinez sole goal of the match helped Italian giants Inter Milan reached their first Champions League final for 13 years, after thrashing their rivals Ac Milan 3-0 on aggregate.
Three-time winners Inter, who led 2-0 after the first leg, will face either Manchester City or Real Madrid in Istanbul on 10 June after their composed second-leg encounter to progress into the finals.
Martinez, Inter’s captain, exchanged decent passes with Chelsea’s loanee Romelu Lukaku and drilled a shot from inside the penalty area that Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan could not keep outside his net.
As Stefano Pioli’s team attempted to repair the damage caused by giving up two goals in the span of 11 minutes the previous week, but Theo Hernandez narrowly missed with a fierce shot that was stopped by Andre Onana.
Inter have been European champions three times and their last crown came in 2010 when Jose Mourinho led them to a 2-0 victory against Bayern Munich in Madrid.
