Inter Milan earn an advantage at the top of the table with a statement Milan derby win

Inter Milan managed to extract revenge on their city rivals in the Milan derby that went in their favour, with the scoreline reading 3-0 at the end of the game. Lautaro Martinez grabbed a brace while Romelu Lukaku scored one for himself to put the Nerazzurri ahead at the top of the table, usurping AC Milan who had been at the top since almost the start of the season in itself.

While the goalscorers must be given credit, Inter keeper Samir Handanovic must also be given a special mention due to his heroics between the sticks that kept the clean sheet for Antonio Conte’s mean despite the opposition firing on all fronts since the beginning of the second half. 

AC Milan fielded their first-choice XI, with the likes of Hakan Calhanoglu, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Gigi Donnarumma, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez all making the starting lineup. However, they were bettered by their opponents who also had all their starters chosen. 

The match was a classic display of Antonio Conte’s approach to football, with Inter ripping their rivals apart on the counter on multiple occasions. The most ruthless of the lot were the second and third goals.

Lautaro Martinez’s second goal was an epic display of teamwork from Inter Milan while the third and final goal of the game simply showed how dominant of a physical specimen Romelu Lukaku truly is. The Belgian ran with the ball at the defense from the halfway line before unleashing an unstoppable curling shot into the bottom left corner to beat Gigi Donnarumma. 

That was Lukaku’s 17th goal in Serie A this season, putting the striker at the top of the pile in the race for the Golden Boot for the time being. 

The victory gives Antonio Conte’s team the advantage at the top of the table, and they are currently four points clear of AC Milan, who fall down to the second place.
