Shakhtar welcomed back several of the players who had missed the victory in Madrid because they were in isolation following a coronavirus outbreak in the squad. However, it lost forward Dentinho early on with a hamstring problem and he was replaced by Taison.
Inter almost took the lead moments later. Trubin did well to parry Romelu Lukaku’s effort and the ball came back to the Inter forward who cut it back to Nicolò Barella, but his shot cannoned off the crossbar.
Trubin then did even better shortly before full time with a sensational fingertip save to push Lukaku’s free kick onto the crossbar.
Inter continued to press after the break and should have broken the deadlock early in the second half. Trubin blocked an effort from Marcelo Brozović and Lautaro Martínez incredibly fired the rebound wide from close range.
