Inter’s 2-1 victory over Bologna last night had multiple areas of contention, with the Rossoblu protesting dramatically after the full-time whistle.

A report from today’s paper edition of the Milan based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport analysed the most contentious moments.

The first moment the report highlighted was after 33 minutes, when 22-year-old Argentinian striker Lautaro Martinez scored after dribbling past the Bologna goalkeeper Łukasz Skorupski, but a correct offside call was made that nullified the goal.

Then, five minutes later, Romelu Lukaku hit the net after receiving a cross from Valentino Lazaro, but again the goal was nullified due to the ball exiting play before the cross came in, the report adds.

Furthermore, at 47 minutes Lazaro went down after a foul from Bologna defender Mattia Bani, but it was called as a free kick rather than a penalty, with VAR not seemingly used to confirm the exact location of the challenge.

The final two contentious moments were late in the game. First there was Matteo Politano’s contact on Rodrigo Palacio that saw the Bologna man go down, but the referee didn’t call a foul. Then, in the dying minutes of the game, Lautaro Martinez’s feet were too quick for Riccardo Orsolini, who fouled the Argentine and allowed Lukaku to win the game with a penalty.
