Former Nigeria international, Victor Moses came from the bench for Italian Giants Inter Milan, as he played a part in their 2-1 victory against Bayer Leverkusen.

Nicolo Barella put Inter ahead after 15 minutes, driving the ball home after Lukaku’s shot was blocked, and six minutes later the Belgian got on the scoresheet when he displayed his strength by holding off Burkina Faso defender Edmond Tapsoba before firing home.

Leverkusen winger Kai Havertz pulled a goal back for the Germans but it was goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky who kept them in the game with a string of fine saves.

Moses joined the action in the 59th minute when he replaced Danilo D’Ambrosio. The 2013 Nations cup winner made 17 touches and made a clearance and tackle each in the match. He also notched up 7 passes with an 87.5% accuracy.

Inter will now face the winner between Shakhtar Donetsk or FC Basel in the semi-final, as both teams are slated to meet Tuesday.
