Watch Romelu Lukaku score while sitting down as Inter striker nets for NINTH straight Europa League game

ROMELU LUKAKU scored a record-breaking goal as Inter Milan went 2-0 up against Bayer Leverkusen… while lying on the floor.

The Belgian striker, 27, was wrestled to the ground during a tussle in the box following a superb pass from Ashley Young.

But somehow Lukaku – who's been on fire since quitting Manchester United last summer – managed to poke the ball home.

The goal – reminiscent of Lionel Messi's strike against Napoli, in terms of finish if not the sparkling solo run in the build-up – gave Inter Milan a 2-0 lead over the German giants.

And in scoring, Lukaku became the first player to ever score in NINE consecutive Europa League games.

Earlier in the game, Nicolo Barella had given the Serie A giants a 1-0 lead with just 15 minutes on the clock.

Just ten minutes later, Lukaku's floor routine doubled the Italians' lead to put his side on the brink of a spot in the semi-finals.

With no second-leg due to the enforced break, Inter looked dead-set for the final-four.

But Chelsea transfer target Kai Havertz scored a nice goal just moments later to halve the deficit and give Leverkusen a sniff.

Seconds later, Inter went straight up the other end and were awarded a penalty after Daley Sinkgraven was deemed to have handled the ball in the area.

However, after a quick check with VAR, the decision was overruled.

After the frantic start, the teams played out the final 20 minutes of the half with little drama to go into the break with Inter leading 2-1.
