Former Arsenal football club of England midfield maestro, Henrikh Mkhitaryan was incredible yesterday for Italian Serie A giant Inter Milan in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals ties against AC Milan at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in San Siro.
The 34 year old Albenian international was handed a role to play for the visitor in the starting XI line-up following his outstanding performance for the team in their previous game, and he was able to replicate another top notch delivery at the heart of the centre-field where he played more of the offensive role.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the game displayed a man of the match performance as he was instrumental in helping to get the ball advanced upfront which as such got him directly involved in one of his team's two goals of the night.
Edin Dzeko in the 8th minute of the game got the score sheet opened as he gave the visitor the lead to make it one nil, before Henrikh Mkhitaryan got the lead doubled in the 11th minute to make it two goals to nil going into the half time break.
The tempo of the game between the two sides got tensed up as they both put up some physical, tactical and technical displays but none was able to found the back of the net with all attempts to add more to the tally proving abortive as it ended two goals to nil at full time.
After the game, Henrikh Mkhitaryan was named as the winner for the Man of the Match award following his astonishing performance which was a well deserved one.
He will as such be hoping to keep the tempo and momentum going for his team in their next game as they continue their pursuit in the competition.
