There were plenty of Argentine players on display but only two scored as Inter drew 3-3 against Zenit.
Lautaro MARTINEZ and Mauro ICARDI will form a formidable partnership if these early beginnings are anything to go by. The Inter captain scored Inter’s second of the match as the goalkeeper went the wrong way off a penalty as ICARDI gave his team the lead.

In the 65th minute, Lautaro MARTINEZ was substituted on for ICARDI and it took him just 10 minutes to make his mark. With just over 15 minutes left in the match, Lautaro drew his new club level with a predatory like finish from inside the penalty area.
For Zenit, Leandro PAREDES, Matias KRANEVITTER and Sebastian DRIUSSI all played for the Russian club.
