Internazionale has seized the leading position in Serie A. With a 3-1 victory over SS Lazio, it took full advantage of the defeat of AC Milan. Romelu Lukaku was the great star with two goals and an assist.
Lukaku celebrated his fifteenth and sixteenth league reffer of the season. He has now scored 300 goals for his clubs and country team. Stefan de Vrij played the whole game for Inter. Wesley Hoedt didnt know a happy night. He caused a penalty kick that Lukaku used. Even after several repetitions it was not clear that Hodt actually hit his opponent Lautaro Martinez.
Initially, Hodt thought to start the second half. He was already ready for kick-off, until trainer Simeone Inzaghi decided to change him and Lucas Leiva. Without the duo, Gonzalo Escalante reduced the gap for Lazio. Martinez then restored the margin of two.
Inter now has a point more than AC Milan. AS Roma (7 points) and Juventus (8 points) have fallen further behind. Juventus has played a less duel than Inter.
