  • Both sides needed a result on matchday six to progress to the knockout-stages
  • But after a goalless draw, Inter and Shakhtar Donetsk miss out on a last-16 place
  • Lautaro Martinez hit the bar for Antonio Conte’s side, who were largely dominant

Inter Milan were knocked out of the Champions League in the group stage for the third season in a row on Wednesday after being held to a 0-0 draw at home by Shakhtar Donetsk, who were also eliminated.

Lautaro Martinez rattled the crossbar in the seventh minute of the Group B match but Inter created few chances after that, despite dominating possession at a soggy San Siro.

Shakhtar finished level with Borussia Monchengladbach on eight points but lost out to the Bundesliga side – beaten 2-0 by Real Madrid – on their head-to-head record to finish third and will go into the Europa League instead.

Inter, who could have gone through with a win, finished bottom of the group with six points after drawing three of their six games. Real won the group with 10 points.
