With its tenth consecutive victory, Inter continues to fly towards the nineteenth league title in its history and maintained its twelve-point margin over Juventus, third, who beat Napoli (2-1) this Wednesday with goals from the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo and the Argentine Paulo Dybala.
It was again the offensive couple “Lu-La” who decided the match in favor of the Milanese team, which, despite not shining, again showed their punch and power to the counterattack.
Lukaku celebrated his twenty-first goal in Serie A, while “Toro” Lautaro has been in Serie A for fifteen. They are the protagonists of the great inter-league winning streak.
The goal of the Ivorian Hamad Traoré (m.85) was of little use, a talented midfielder of a Sassuolo who arrived at San Siro without being able to count on leaders such as Manuel Locatelli, Domenico Berardi or Francesco Caputo.
With nine days to go, Inter now have eleven points ahead of Milan, who have been slowing down in recent weeks, and see the end point approaching nine years of Juventus dominance.
