If he manages to convert for Inter in the quarter-final match against Bayer Leverkusen, the Belgian forward will be the first player to score in nine straight games in the competition.
Inter will face Bayer Leverkusen in Düsseldorf for the quarterfinals of the Europa League and in its front it has Romelu lukaku as a scoring guarantee. The Belgian forward is shaping up to be a starter in Germany and is aiming to set an impressive record.
Lukaku scored in each of his last eight Europa League games (11 goals in total), a streak he built between the 2014-15 season, when he was playing for Everton, and the current campaign.
The 27-year-old attacker is the second player to score in eight consecutive UEFA Cup / Europa League games, after Alan Shearer did it in 2004-05. Nobody managed to do it in nine games in a row.
In the current campaign of Antonio Conte’s team in the continental competition, Lukaku has scored three goals: two against Ludogorets and one against Getafe. With Everton he had converted eight in 2014-15.
