Spartak Moscow 0 – 1 Inter Milan, Champions League Thriller in Freezing Temperatures

November 1, 2006

Spartak Moscow 0 – 1 Inter Milan

Tuesday 31.10.06

Match Summary:

A thrilling match in -2 C (28 F) temperatures as a first minute goal by Julio Cruz, from a Zlatan Ibrahimovic cross, holds up to move Inter to second with 6 points.

The Italian side showed signs of brilliance with some lovely passing, but Spartak dominated for long stretches.

A draw or better would have been a fair result for the Russian side as they will certainly rue missed opportunites. Not the least of which being a 78th minute Roman Shishkin strike from 40 yards that rocked the crossbar, dramatically sending chucks of ice raining down onto the goal line.
