Lautaro Martinez’s header for Inter against Torino might have been the goal that secured the Serie A title for the Nerazzurri, according to former Juventus midfielder Alessio Tacchinardi.

El Toro got on the end of an Alexis Sanchez cross near the end of the match at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino and headed home to give Inter a 2-1 win, their eighth straight victory in Serie A.

Thanks to the win in Turin, coupled with second-placed AC Milan’s defeat to Napoli, Antonio Conte’s side moved nine points clear at the top of the Serie A table with 11 games to play.

“There are moments that can change a season,” Tacchinardi, who was Conte’s teammate for several years at Juventus, told TMW Radio on Monday night.

“Inter’s last two games haven’t been pretty but they’ve brought home two hugely important wins.

“Lautaro’s goal might have won Inter the title, considering the defeat of AC Milan.”

The 23-year-old scored his 16th goal across all competitions this season on Sunday, while also equalling his previous best tally of 14 goals in a single Serie A season.

A report in the Italian media on Tuesday argued that Lautaro’s winning goal highlighted three of the greatest strengths Conte’s Inter side possess.

Lautaro is reportedly close to signing a new contract at Inter after lowering his original wage demands.
