Inter Milan reaches last 16 of Champions League

AP, Wednesday 23 Nov 2011

Inter Milan advanced to the last 16 of the Champions League despite only drawing 1-1 at Trabzonspor on Tuesday.


The Serie A team went through when Lille defeated CSKA Moscow 2-0 earlier in the day.

Inter midfielder Ricardo Alvarez scored in the 18th minute following an exchange with fellow Argentine Diego Milito. The hosts leveled five minutes later when Halil Altintop’s left-footed shot hit the crossbar and went in after deflecting off Inter defender Walter Samuel.

Inter leads Group B by four points from second-place Trabzonspor. Lille and CSKA are a further point back.

Trabzonspor will play at Lille and Inter will face CSKA Moscow in the last round of the group stage on Dec. 7.
