Romelu Lukaku, scorer in the quarterfinals of the Europa League, breaks a record old from 2005! (VIDEO)

Romelu Lukaku and Inter Milan face Lerverkusen this Monday evening in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Things started very well for the Inters since they quickly took the lead. First via Nicolo Barella from the quarter of an hour (1-0).

It was then the inevitable Romelu Lukaku who doubled the bet in the 21st, on an assist from Ashley Young. The Belgian still played perfectly with his body and his back to finally conclude subtly. Note that the Devil offers himself a new record with this goal: he becomes the first scorer in 9 consecutive Europa League matches (5 with Everton in 2014-2015 and 3 with Inter this season). A first in the history of competition! Lukaku thus beats a record held so far by Alan Shearer. In the 2004-2005 season, the England striker had scored at least one goal in eight consecutive appearances for Newcastle in the UEFA Cup (the former name of the Europa League).

Kai Havertz will reduce the score in stride (25th, 2-1) for Borussia.
