MILAN — Inter Milan were knocked out of the Champions League in the group stage for the third season in a row on Wednesday after being held to a 0-0 draw at home by Shakhtar Donetsk, who were also eliminated.
Lautaro Martinez rattled the crossbar in the seventh minute of the Group B match, but Inter created few chances after that, despite dominating possession at a soggy San Siro.
Shakhtar finished level with Borussia Mönchengladbach on eight points, but lost out to the Bundesliga side — beaten 2-0 by Real Madrid — on their head-to-head record to finish third and will go into the Europa League instead.
Inter, who could have gone through with a win, finished bottom of the group with six points after drawing three of their six games. Real won the group with 10 points. — Reuters
