Inter striker Lautaro Martinez’s second goal against Slavia Prague in the 2019/20 Champions League group stage is in the running for Champions League goal of the competition, tournament organisers UEFA have confirmed.
The recently turned 23-year-old Argentine’s second goal of the game against the Czech side was a ferrocious volley which capped off a 3-1 victory for the Nerazzurri in the Czech capital.
Lautaro is one of four players from a Serie A club with a goal in the running with Juventus trio Cristiano Ronaldo, Douglas Costa and Juan Cuadrado all also having goals in the running.
Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry, Lyon’s Maxwel Cornet, Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland, RB Leipzig’s Dani Olmo (who was at Dinamo Zagreb when he scored the goal in the running), RB Leipzig’s Marcel Sabitzer and Barcelona’s Luis Suarez make up the rest of the 10 strong list of goals.
The winner will be announced in a few days time on August 27.
