Inter knocked out after being held at home by PSV Eindhoven (The Star)
MILAN (Reuters) – Inter Milan were knocked out of the Champions League after they could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to Group B’s bottom club PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday to finish third behind Tottenham Hotspur.
Inter would have qualified with a win but, on a fraught night at San Siro, finished level on eight points with Tottenham who squeezed through after drawing 1-1 away to Barcelona due to their better head-to-head record over the Italians.
PSV, with only one point from their first five games, took a shock lead in the 13th minute when Hirving Lozano headed home after Kwadwo Asamoah lost possession in defence.
In a match which Inter coach Luciano Spalletti described as the most important of his 18 months at the club, the visitors then survived incessant Inter pressure until Mauro Icardi headed in from Matteo Politano’s cross in the 73rd minute.
