Analysis
Sporting started in the same attacking manner that allowed them to knock out holders Ugra Yugorsk on Friday, but Inter had too much quality and experience to meet the same fate. From 1-0 up they controlled the game as we have seen in so many UEFA competitions from Spanish sides, soaking up pressure comfortably and countering at will. Naturally Ricardinho played his part against his Portuguese countrymen, while the two clever free-kicks early in the second half that sealed Sporting's fate were masterfully executed.
