[VIDEO] Lukaku on fire in Europa League

Romelu Lukaku continues to be on-form as his goal helped Inter to qualify to Europa League semi-finals after beating Bayer Leverkusen with a 2-1 win.

The 27-year-old also set a record by scoring in nine straight Europa League games.

Nicolo Barella put Inter ahead after 15 minutes, before Lukaku scored a winner he displayed his strength by holding off defender Edmond Tapsoba before firing home.

Leverkusen winger Kai Havertz equalised after 24 minutes but the away side failed to find an equaliser until the final whistle.

The win means Inter will play either Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk or FC Basel of Switzerland.

Lukaku however, gave credit to his teammates Barella.

“To me, the man of the match is Nicolo Barella. The way he plays football is simply incredible – maturity, quality. He is truly a great player.”
