They started dreadfully but Inter full value for the win in the end. How they will rue Jorge Molina's penalty miss though.

David Timor aimed for the far post but it goes harmlessly out for a goal kick.
It hardly matters now but Jason is felled by Barella on the right hand edge of the box.
Alexis Sanchez through on goal but his attempted chip is far wide of the target.
GOAL! Eriksen scores within a minute of coming onto the pitch. He played in D'Ambrosio on the right flank and then Djene could only block his cross into the path of the Dane whose shot was too firm for Soria to keep out, though he got a hand to it.
Eriksen on for Inter now replacing Brozovic.
WHAT A MISS! Superb play from Barella breaking into the Getafe box and then winning a challenge before squaring to Lukaku, just outside the six-yard box, but the Belgian striker on his wrong foot pushed his effort wide.
MISSED! Subsitute Jorge Molina walked up to the spot and put the ball a yard wide of the target.
It's a penalty! Wow.
There's a VAR check on a penalty. No one appealed for it. A cross from the right flank caught Godin's hand when it seemed he expected the two players in front of him to clear the ball.
Alexis Sanchez comes on for Martinez for Inter.
Two more subs for Getafe, Mata off for Molina and Jason replaces Nyom.
Best chance Getafe have had since their early dominance. Nyom's cross finds Mata who heads too centrally and Handanovic tips over.
Angel shoots from outside the box but it is high over the crossbar.
Brozovic sends the ball to the back post but it is too high for D'Ambrosio.
Lukaku is pulled down on the right hand side of the penalty area by Exteita.
Getafe needed a change and they're putting their faith in Angel, who replaces Maksimovic.
Lukaku landed awkwardly going for a header. It looks like he might have injured his right arm as he fell.
D'Ambrosio with an audacious scissor-kick at the back post forces Soria to punch away and Mata's crucial interception stops Godin from tucking home the rebound.
Great start from Inter and Barella shrugs off two challenges in midfield before clipping an effort just wide of goal from 25 yards.
We're back underway. Can Getafe get back into this.
Inter looked totally out of sorts for the first 25 minutes but now look firmly in control.
Fairly comfortable for Inter now. The game has really turned.
Dangerous corner swung to the back post by Getafe but though it flies beyond the outstretched punching arm of Handanoivc there is no attacking player to get on the end of it.
GOAL! Lukaku puts Inter in front. A straightforward long ball down the channel from Bastoni and the Belgian striker as he has done so many times, holds off his defender, on this occasion Exteita, and drills a shot into the far corner.
D'Ambrosio meets Brozovic's set piece but Soria comfortably gathers on this occasion.
Martinez again shoots at goal, this time from a central position just outside the box but again Soria is equal to it diving to his left and pushing away the low drive.
Soria is finally called upon to make a save and he does very well diving to his right to deny Martinez who drilled a low drive across him towards the inside of the post.
Straight up the other end and Mata takes a little too long to get a shot off perhaps and he sees his effort blocked. Six shots for Getafe, none for Inter.
Getafe keeper Soria had to come out of goal to clear away after Martinez ran through on goal.
A dangerous corner comes into the box by Suarez and Olivera just cant get a shot on target.
Inter getting more into their stride now passing the ball around the midfield.
Conte has said his side are very tired. He looks it as well to be fair. They will need to be switched on soon, judging by how Getafe have started.
Briliant stop by Handanozic denies Maksimovic. A great move from Getafe who look ON. Suarez put in a cross that the number 20 met with a firm header and the Inter keeper at full-stretch pushed away.
Former West Brom full back Nyom, playing further forward on the right flank today, put a low ball across the six-yard box that Mata couldn't get on the end of.
Inter get us underway.
Both teams out on the field now for this rare one-off European club cup tie, something we'll get very used to over the next few weeks.
Getafe have plenty of motivation after ending up out of European qualification from la Liga in eighth spot, but come into the game in awful form after losing four and drawing two of their last six games.
It will be interesting to see Inter's motivation tonight. They are already in next year's Champions League after a 2-0 win at Atalanta on Saturday ensured they finished second to Juventus in Serie A.
A quarter-final tie with Bayer Leverkusen or Rangers await the winner of tonight's clash.
Romelu Lukaku, bizarrely a figure of fun at Old Trafford last season, is having his best goalscoring season with 29 goals to his name so far. Here's a nice troll of his former trolls...
While the other three ties played their first legs before Covid stopped everything, Inter's game was called off due to Italy being the first in Europe to be struck by the pandemic.
A reminder that unlike the other three Europa League games tonight, this one takes place on neutral ground - Schalke's home, the VELTINS-Arena in Gelsenkirchen.
Here's Getafe's side...
Christian Eriksen will start on the bench for Inter.
