Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez are set to become one of Inter’s most prolific attacks ever, as highlighted by a report in the Italian media today.

Despite only being 23 games into the Serie A season, the Nerazzurri’s deadly duo have already combined for 30 goals and are helping Antonio Conte’s side break records which have stood for decades.

Inter have scored 57 league goals already, with Tuttosport’s print edition pointing out that only on two previous occasions had they scored more by this stage of the season, way back in 1949-50 and 1950-51.

Lukaku and Lautaro were both on target last weekend when Inter demolished their title rivals AC Milan with a 3-0 victory in the Derby della Madonnina.

TS explained that the Nerazzurri had almost always relied on two top-quality strikers in their previous Serie A title-winning campaigns, highlighting some of the numbers achieved by previous partnerships.

In the 1988-89 Scudetto season, Inter’s strike force of Aldo Serena and Ramon Diaz combined for 34 league goals under Giovanni Trapattoni, helping them set Italy’s all-time record for points in a 34-game season in the era of two points for a win.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Hernan Crespo scored 29 between them in the 2006-07 campaign, meanwhile, before Ibra and Julio Cruz hit 30 the following season.

Mario Balotelli then joined the Swede to score a total of 33 goals in Jose Mourinho’s first year in charge, while Samuel Eto’o and Diego Milito found the net 34 times during the treble-winning season in 2009-10.
