All Inter goals in the 2010 semi-finals against Barcelona

Before him, only Mourinho could do this feat. His first semi-final in 2004 with Porto was just a stopover for the title, after which he was eliminated twice with Chelsea against Liverpool (2005 and 2007).

With Inter Milan, Mourinho prevailed against Guardiolas Barcelona in the 2010 semi-finals and won the pot, but with Real Madrid he should fail three times in the semi-finals. Mourinho reached his last semi-final so far after his return to Chelsea (2014).
