UCL: Inter Draw Shakhtar, Bayern Scrap Win Against Lokomotiv

UCL: Inter Draw Shakhtar, Bayern Scrap Win Against Lokomotiv

UEFA Champions League resumes on Tuesday night as Inter Milan drew blank against Shakhtar Donetsk while Bayern Munich scraped a narrow win against Lokomotiv Moscow with Joshua Kimmich's goal.

AllNews understands that for the second consecutive game, Inter has to settle with one point despite again creating several chances to score.

The Nerazzurri hit the woodwork twice in the first half and missed a golden opportunity with Martínez in the second. Now they will face Real Madrid twice in a row, which is not an ideal situation for Conte's men who will surely leave Kyiv with a bitter taste in their mouth.

Lokomotiv Moscow was the second-best team on the night. However, they played with discipline and desire to get a result that could be called positive. With some luck, their plan has worked and four points from two games is a great outcome for Shakhtar

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Bayern Munich

Sometimes the points are more important than the performance and that is the hallmark of champions.

To grind out wins when not at best. That's exactly what Bayern did on the night with a moment of inspiration from Kimmich.

Bayern opened the scoring in the 13th minute, Tolisso's raked pass picked out Pavard, who squared it first time for Goretzka to head past Guilherme.

Lokomotiv responded in the 76th minute of the second half, in a sort of counterattack the hosts who have been threatening all evening. Zé Luís raced clear down the right and squares for Miranchuk to finish. Anton Miranchuk finished off Neuer in style.

With 11 minutes left on the watch, Kimmich received the ball outside the penalty area with his back to goal but needed just one touch to control - and then turned to fire into the bottom corner.

Lokomotiv came closer to taking a point off the holders than most teams have done in the last 12 months, which will give them confidence for their remaining games.

The dream was alive for nine minutes. It might be said that Lokomotiv deserved to draw the game, punishing Bayern for their complacency and scoring an equalizer. But the champions of Europe turned it on when it was needed and found the winner.
