Inter Milan survived a late scare to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League

Inter Milan reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 2011, after a goalless draw in Porto, to secure its progress.

A Romelu Lukaku goal four minutes from the end of the first leg was enough to get Inter through, as they joined city rivals AC Milan.

Mehdi Tarimi came within inches of forcing the equalizer into extra time when he hit the crossbar in the dying minutes.

The Portuguese side cut down to 10 men in the seventh minute of stoppage time when winger Pepe received a second yellow card.

Chelsea striker Lukaku, loaned to Inter, entered 20 minutes from time to replace Edin Dzeko, who was closer to scoring for Simone Inzaghi’s team, with a low gift saved by Diogo Costa.

Napoli could reach three Serie A clubs in the quarter-finals on Wednesday, taking a 2-0 lead over Eintracht Frankfurt from the first leg.
