Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen scored his first goal for the club since last month’s move from Tottenham Hotspur to set up a 2-0 win at Ludogorets Razgrad in the Europa League on Thursday.
Manchester United were held 1-1 at Club Brugge and Getafe pulled off a surprise 2-0 home win over last year’s Champions League semi-finalists Ajax in other round-of-32, first-leg ties.
Inter were frustrated by more than an hour by their Bulgarian opponents until Eriksen fired a low shot into the net from just outside the penalty area in the 71st minute.
Romelu Lukaku sealed the win with a stoppage-time penalty, the Belgian striker’s 22nd goal of the season after Anicet Andrianantenaina was judged to have handled following a VAR review.
United were quickly in trouble in Belgium when Emmanuel Dennis lobbed the ball over Sergio Romero to give Brugge a 15th- minute lead. But Anthony Martial levelled in the 36th minute when he raced through to place a shot past Simon Mignolet.
