Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez struck twice as Inter Milan cruised into the Europa League final by beating Shakhtar Donetsk 5-0, on Monday.

Inter Milan found their breakthrough in the first half as Martinez struck his first in the 19th minute with a perfect header. Inter could have easily doubled it before the half-time had they not missed a couple of chances, thus going into half-time with 1-0 on the board.

The Italian giants continued their offensive approach going into the second half as Danilo D’ Ambrosio doubled their lead with another header in the 64th minute before Martinez was on target again in the 74th minute for his second goal to make it 3-0 for Inter.

Romelu Lukaku continued his dominance in the Europa League as he scored two more goals in the 78th and 83rd minutes respectively, putting an icing on the cake for Inter Milan.

Lukaku became the first player in Europa League history to score in 10 consecutive matches, a streak that dates back to November of 2014 from his days at Everton.

Shakhtar seemed completely outplayed by Inter Milan in every department, as they failed to gain control over the game at any given point on Monday.

Inter Milan will meet Sevilla for the right to be crowned Europa League champions on Friday in Cologne, Germany. Having missed out on the Serie A title by a single point, Inter now has the chance to claim the first trophy since 2011.
