Romelu Lukaku produced a fabulous display, scoring two goals that helped under-pressure boss Antonio Conte and gave his side with a fighting chance of making it into the knockout phase of the competition.

📷 Romelu Lukaku: Match Performance

Lukaku has started the season brightly, scoring six goals in Serie A before tonight's game.

However, the Belgian striker had previously failed to score in any of Inter's Champions League games.

He broke his duck for this season in this corker of a match, which swayed from one side to the next throughout the 90 minutes.

⏱️ 64' His first goal exhibited all the hallmarks of a classic Lukaku strike: strength, pace, remarkable precision. Running on to Marcelo Brozovic pass, Lukaku held off his marker as he entered the penalty box, the No. 9 took aim and hammered in a low shot with his right foot that crashed into the bottom corner.

⏱️ 73' Lukaku added his second of the evening when he found himself in acres of space. Achraf Hakimi's cross from the right-hand side found the Belgian, who let the ball run across him before he smashed it home with his left foot to give Inter a 3-1 lead.

Lukaku: What Next?

The Belgian striker is close to hitting top form once more. He has been let down as of late by the worrying form of strike partner Lautaro Martinez, who appears to be struggling.

Personally, the Belgian is playing his part in attempting to keep some stability to Inter's erratic start to the season.
