Lautaro Martínez, the talented forward for FC Internazionale, was in great spirits as he celebrated scoring a goal during the Serie A TIM game against SS Lazio at Stadio Olimpico. This triumph not only boosted Inter’s position at the top of the Serie A standings but also widened their lead by four points.
The lethal striking duo of Martínez and Marcus Thuram played a vital role in securing a 2-0 victory over Lazio in Rome. Simone Inzaghi, the former coach of Lazio, recognized the significance of this match in their quest for the Scudetto, particularly following Juventus’ draw against Genoa on Friday. Inter displayed a precise and efficient performance in the historic city, capitalizing on a disastrous back-pass by Adam Marusic that generously allowed Martínez to score the initial goal. This error occurred towards the end of a first half that had been relatively evenly matched.
Just when Lazio appeared to be regaining momentum with some menacing attacks, Thuram skillfully netted Inter’s second goal shortly before the 60th minute. The Biancocelesti encountered difficulties in breaking through Inter’s formidable defense, which has now maintained four consecutive shutouts. In a further blow to the home team, Manuel Lazzari was issued a direct red card for expressing his disagreement during the final moments of the game. As a result of this loss, Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio now find themselves in 11th position in the standings, having endured their seventh defeat of the season.
