Inter avoid upset in Azerbaijan

Published Add your comment

Philippe Coutinho's 10th minute strike set Inter Milan on their way to their first win in UEFA Europa League Group H with a 3-1 success against Neftchi in Azerbaijan.

Inter, who had been held at home in their opening group game by Rubin Kazan, built on their lead with further strikes from Joel Obi and Marko Livaja before half-time. Nicolas Canales scored a 53rd-minute consolation for the hosts.

However, Rubin Kazan kept pace with the Italians with a 2-0 home win over Partizan Belgrade. Gokdeniz Karadeniz opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time and Alexander Ryazantsev added a second just after the break.
