Inter looked at their best to beat Lazio and take all three points in their first Serie A match back from the winter break according to Italian media.
The Nerazzurri are praised for their complete and controlling display against the Biancocelesti in today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
Inter were good value for the two goals they scored, courtesy of defenders Alessandro Bastoni and Milan Skriniar, while they mostly kept the Biancocelesti quiet on the counter.
A mix-up at the back allowed Lazio striker Ciro Immobile an easy finish to see the Nerazzurri concede their first goal in 587 minutes of Serie A action, perhaps the only blemish on the evening, but otherwise they controlled play and didn’t let the Biancocelesti get much joy on the counter.
Inter created seventeen shots to Lazio’s five in yet another display which saw them control possession and the tempo of the match.
This was the Nerazzurri’s eighth consecutive Serie A victory, and their third against a “direct” rival after wins against Napoli and Roma during that spell, and it took them a point clear of city rivals AC Milan at the top of the table with a game in hand.
