Atletico Madrid defied the odds to knock out Inter Milan from the 2023/24 Champions League, MySportDab reports.

It was a cracker as the two sides locked horns in the return leg of the Champions League round 16 clash.

Inter Milan went into the game with a slender 1-0 lead in the first leg and needed a draw to reach the last eight of the competition.

However, they faced a uphill task edging out the LaLiga giants in Spain, having gone winless in all their last 10 meetings with Spanish clubs.

It was seven defeats and three draws for the Nerazurri against Spanish opponents in Spain.

They nearly broke the jinx at the Civitas Metropolitano on Wednesday when Di Marco scored in the 33rd minute to give the away side the lead.

Atletico Madrid responded immediately with an equaliser from Antoine Griezman in the 35th minute. It ended 1-1 at the break.

Inter Milan were close to running away with a 2-1 aggregate win but were suddenly pegged back by the hosts three minutes before regulation time.

Substitute Memphis Depay scored in the 87th minute to give Atletico Madrid the lead and pegged back the 2022/23 finalists to a 2-2 aggregate draw.

The game was dragged into extra time and then to penalties. Inter Milan missed two penalties while Atletico Madrid missed only one to emerge with a 3-2 victory and qualify for the quarterfinals of the competition.
