Inter Milan scored two goals inside the opening 15 minutes to seal a 2-0 win over AC Milan in the Champions League semi-final first leg on Wednesday in a bid to become the first Italian team to win the competition since 2010.
Inter struck after eight and 11 minutes, Edin Dzeko smashing in a close-range volley, before Henrikh Khitryan doubled the lead from Federico Dimarco’s cross.
Hosts Milan looked dazed and did not attempt to score in the first half.
They showed more attacking intent after the break, but failed to create several clear chances, with strikes from Brahim Diaz and Junior Messias missing the target and Sandro Tonali hitting the post.
The second leg is on Tuesday and the winner will face either Real Madrid or Manchester City in the final.
