Icardi two for two

Mauro Icardi has two goals in his first two Champions League games, the first Inter player to achieve that feat since Adriano.

The Nerazzurri captain scored a stunning volley against Tottenham on the first matchday, with his side going on to take a 2-1 win.

Last night against PSV he took advantage of a defensive mix-up to score his second in as many games, having only made his Champions League debut this season.

The last Inter player to score in his first two Champions League matches was Brazilian Adriano, who achieved the same feat in 2004-05.

Indeed L’Imperatore went one better, scoring a double against Werder Bremen before also finding the back of the net against Anderlecht.

He made it three in a row in the following match, scoring the fourth in a 5-1 win over Valencia, and Icardi will look to match that achievement against Barcelona on October 24.
