Inter coach Antonio Conte matched his record of 28 points in the first 11 games of the season thanks to the Nerazzurri’s tough 2-1 victory over Bologna on Saturday night, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper la Repubblica.
The report details how former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku was instrumental in driving the Milanese side forward. His mental strength to not falter when asked to take the penalty in the dying minutes of the game show how much confidence he has playing with the Nerazzurri under the 50-year-old Italian coach.
Furthermore, the impressive performance of 22-year-old Argentine forward Lautaro Martinez cannot be forgotten, even if he didn’t touch the score sheet. His quick feet in the last minutes of the game drew the foul from Bologna forward Riccardo Orsolini, giving Inter a penalty at a vital moment.
Finally, the report touches on the impressive first start of Austrian midfielder Valentino Lazaro. The 23-year-old impressed, finally showing why Inter took the punt on him in the summer transfer window.
