Italian club Inter Milan have progressed to the semi-finals of the Champions League after defeating Russian outfit CSKA Moscow 1-0 away and 2-0 on aggregate.

The Nerazzurri went ahead in just the 6th minute at the Luzhniki Stadium through a Wesley Sneijder goal and then managed to cruise to a win after grabbing the first leg 1-0 at home.

Moscow toiled away but their job was made a lot harder when Nigerian winger Chidi Odiah was handed a second yellow card and sent off in the 49th minute.

The win sees Inter go through to the final four of the competition for the first time since 2003 but they will have to pull out all the stops to defeat Spanish club Barcelona who eased past Arsenal 4-1 at the Nou Camp to reach the semis 6-3 on aggregate.
