Inter striker Lautaro Martinez is hoping that this evening’s 2-0 win over Venezia can help the Nerazzurri along their way to a second Scudetto in a row.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN following the match, the Argentine stressed the significance of the Scudetto badge in his celebration after he sealed the win with a very late penalty.

Inter looked to be in control for long periods of the match against Venezia, but they also had to protect a slender advantage for long periods and the home side knocked on the door particularly in the second half.

In the end, VAR intervened to give Inter a penalty in the dying minutes of the match, and Martinez stepped up to take the spot kick.

The 24-year-old buried his effort to put the game out of reach for newly-promoted Venezia, and as the striker made clear after the final whistle, the goal and the win were significant for more than just the night.

“We know it would be difficult,” Martinez said, “facing this team here is always difficult. The pitch is small and a bit soft due to the rain, there were many fans. But we’re happy for the three points.”

He went on that “We have to keep working, we are moving up in the table which is important given the points we dropped earlier in the campaign. I touched the Scudetto shield because we have it and we have to hold onto it tightly this year and, we hope, going forward.”

Of the penalty he converted, Martinez stated that “I missed the last one I took, but this sometimes happens. The possibility of an error is on whoever takes the penalty, today I scored and I’m happy about that.”
