📷 Rodrygo: Match Snapshot

Rodrygo was only on the pitch for 26 minutes and hadn't scored in his last 15 outings for Real Madrid prior to tonight, but he proved to be the difference maker.

⏱️ 80' The match was delicately poised at 2-2 with just over 10 minutes remaining when Vincius broke down the left-hand side of the Inter half and crossed the ball into the path of the in-coming Rodrygo.

Rodrygo, just inside the penalty box, took one touch to steady himself, and promptly smashed the ball into the top corner with his right foot.

It was a wonderfully worked goal that arrived at a crucial time for the home side, who were living dangerously against the Italian side.
