Lautaro Martinez Should Not Take Penalties For Inter Any Longer After Cagliari Miss, Italian Media Argue

Inter striker Lautaro Martinez should no longer be considered as one of the Nerazzurri’s primary penalty-takers after his miss from the spot against Cagliari, according to Italian media.

This from today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who argue that the Argentine has now shown that he is not reliable on penalty duties.

There were few blemishes on the Nerazzurri’s evening as they dismantled the Rossoblu 4-0 to go top of the Serie A table, and Martinez scored two of their goals as part of an overall excellent display.

However, the 24-year-old did have one poor moment when he stepped up to take the penalty that had been won by Denzel Dumfries and had a poor effort saved by Cagliari goalkeeper Alessio Cragno.

This is not the first time that Martinez has missed from the spot, having had the chance to put his team ahead against AC Milan in the derby in a match which saw the Nerazzurri drop points, drawing 1-1.

The miss against Cagliari proved to be much less costly, but according to the Gazzetta, was once again a demonstration that the 24-year-old should not be taking penalties as long as the more reliable Hakan Calhanoglu is on the pitch.
