Romelu Lukaku – and this was perhaps the most awaited event of the evening – was finally unlocked in the Champions League , but to set a record in terms of balls placed on the net is his offensive tandem partner, namely Lautaro Martinez . The news was given by Opta Paolo , who explains that Toro is the second Inter player – after Hernan Crespo – to score a double in the Champions League away.
The former Argentine footballer, in fact, was – until this evening – the only holder of this singular record, dating back to 2002 when Crespo managed to score not one, but three external doublets in a single group stage. That, in fact, of the 2002-2003 Champions League, which Inter ended as a semi-finalist, surrendering only to the primacy of the other two Italian teams – Milan and Juventus – able to finish first and second in that edition of the tournament with strong tricolor colors.
