FRANKFURT SHOCK INTER

nter Milan were knocked out of the Europa League at the San Siro as Luka Jovic’s first half goal took Eintracht Frankfurt into the quarter-finals.

The 21-year-old Serbia forward raced clear to lob the ball over Inter keeper Samir Handanovic.

Inter, who were without Mauro Icardi, introduced 16-year-old Sebastiano Esposito, as they chased the game.

However, Frankfurt held on to reach their first quarter-final of a major European competition since 1994-95.

Luciano Spalletti’s Inter side currently reside in fourth position in Serie A, with Frankfurt in fifth position in the Bundesliga.

Meanwhile Slavia Prague shocked Sevilla to win 4-3 after extra-time and 6-5 on aggregate in a thrilling contest.

Napoli lost 3-1 to RB Salzburg in Austria but held on to progress to the quarter-finals 4-3 on aggregate.

Munas Dabbur, Fredrik Gulbrandsen and Christoph Leitgeb scored for last term’s semi-finalists but Arkadiusz Milik’s early goal proved decisive for the Serie A club.
