It was tied. With this, Inter Milan succeeded in advancing to the quarterfinals with an aggregate score of 1-0.

A tight match was expected. Although Inter Milan won in the first leg, it was a one-point match and the second leg was held at Porto home.

As the power difference between the two teams was not large, the direction of the opening goal was important. Accordingly, the two teams engaged in a fierce search battle from the beginning of the first half, and appropriately used ground and fast attacks to put pressure on the opponent.

A week before Inter Milan decided to advance to the quarter-finals, AC Milan, a member of the same family, also played a match in the round of 16. AC Milan, who met Tottenham Hotspur, where Son Heung-min is playing, advanced to the quarterfinals with a 1-0 win in the first leg and a 0-0 draw in the second leg, just like Inter Milan.

The two brothers of Milan, the ‘famous house of tradition’, succeeded in advancing to the quarterfinals together after a long time. In the past heyday, this kind of appearance was often directed, but since entering the 2010s, it has not been easy to see the two teams rise to the UCL quarterfinals. AC Milan reached the quarterfinals for the first time in 11 years since the 2011-12 season, and Inter Milan reached the quarterfinals for the first time in 12 years since the 2010-11 season. It is the first time in 17 years since the 2005-06 season that the two teams reached the quarterfinals together. At that time, AC Milan lost to Barcelona in the semi-finals and Inter Milan lost to Villarreal in the quarter-finals.
