Real Madrid thump Inter Milan to reach UYL semis

Real Madrid are into the UEFA Youth League semifinals after a 3-0 victory over Inter Milan.

Real will now face Salzburg at the same venue on Saturday, after the Austrian side got the better of Olympique de Lyon in their quarter-final clash. Raúl's team dominated from the off, but the goals all came in the second half from the boots of Marvin Park, Miguel and Ivan Morante.

Morante later remarked: "Inter were really tough opponents, but we controlled things right up until the final whistle. We produced an amazing second-half performance and managed to score three times against a team that's defensively tough to break down. Our daily work revolves around the next game. We're now just thinking about recovering for the Salzburg match and are already focusing on getting through the tie.

"The only thing Raúl wants from us is that we give 100% and that we help each other out. We know that, with the technical quality that we've got, it's easier to win games. I've received a lot of support following my goal. It was a special moment for me, with it being my first goal for the club. I'm really excited and hope to go on and score many more."
