Inter orchestrated a remarkable turnaround as they beat AS Roma in a six-goal thriller, extending their Serie A lead to a commanding seven points. They managed to halt Daniele De Rossi’s impressive start in the capital. De Rossi, who stepped in temporarily for Jose Mourinho last month, has led Roma to three consecutive victories. So the stage was set for a challenging clash against an Inter side undefeated in Serie A since September.
The match unfolded dramatically with the rain in the capital. Francesco Acerbi handed the visitors the lead with a powerful header after 17 minutes. However, Roma responded swiftly, with Gianluca Mancini nodding in a free-kick. Later then, Stephan El Shaarawy’s effort bouncing off both posts and into the net, putting them ahead just before halftime.

Inter changed their game style and emerged in the second half, quickly restoring the lead through Marcus Thuram’s close-range finish. Thuram’s relentless pressure then forced an own goal from Angelino, handing Inter the advantage. Despite Benjamin Pavard’s spectacular volley hitting the post and Romelu Lukaku missing a clear opportunity, Inter’s sturdy defense held firm against Roma’s late surge.
In a week that showcased their versatility, Inter demonstrated their ability to triumph over top Serie A opponents in contrasting styles. Their recent Derby d’Italia victory was a strategic finesse. The match against Roma showed their capacity to score goals when needed and respond resiliently to adversity in hostile environments.
This win was a significant test of Inter’s credentials as title contenders, and their performance reaffirmed their status as frontrunners. With a commanding seven-point lead over Juventus and their impressive form. Inter’s dominance in Serie A appears unyielding, firmly establishing them as the team to beat this season. With their exceptional display against Roma, Inter sent a clear message to their rivals: they are on course to clinch the Serie A title.
