Romelu Lukaku annexed an exclusive club as he scored Inter’s first of two goals in a 2-0 Europa League victory over Getafe.

This is the first time Lukaku has eclipsed the 30-goal mark in his career as his previous career-high of 27 goals came in 2017/18, his first season with Manchester United.

Having hit the 30 goal mark, the striker became the first Inter Milan player to score the many goals (30) since Samuel Eto’o in 2010/11 when the striker famously netted 37 times in one season after Inter claimed a historic treble.

Lukaku also joined the likes of Diego Milito and Ronaldo as players to have scored 30 goals for Inter over the last 30 seasons.

Just like Ronaldo, Lukaku reached the 30-goal landmark in his first season with the club, with the Brazilian firing 34 goals in his first season after joining from Barcelona.

Additionally, to equal the legendary Eto’o, Ronaldo, and Milito, Lukaku also equaled a mark last set by Newcastle and Blackburn icon Alan Shearer.

With Wednesday’s goal against Getafe, Lukaku has scored in his last eight Europa League matches equaling the record for the longest streak in the competition set by Shearer in 2005.

The striker’s streak extends back to his time with Manchester United. But, his three-goal haul this season makes him the first player to score at least three goals in the competition since Rodrigo Palacio in 2014/15.

In total, the Belgian International has been involved in 35 of Inter Milan’s 104 goals scored this season across all competitions.

Having taken down Getafe, Inter looks ahead towards the quarter-finals round. They will either face Bayer Leverkusen or Rangers with the German side holding a 3-1 lead from the first leg.
