Great website with good information about FC inter.

What do you think of the result Fenerbahce 1 - 0 Inter?

Thank you for the kind words, Anna.

I believe that the result was predictable. Inter were missing several players, and the Turkish club is always difficult to beat at home. The goal by Deivid was a masterpiece.
