Inter comeback against Lazio to enter the top four

Inter comeback from behind against Lazio and move to the fourth spot. Lazio were close to completing a double over Inter but the ‘Lu-La’ duo inspired a heroic comeback. Although Inter had a bright start to the game, a mistake from Acerbi in possession gave the visitors the lead around the half-hour mark. Inter had to chase Lazio, and fired three goals in the end as Lautaro scored a brace and Lukaku provided a couple of assists.

Inzaghi had to make some changes after the Juventus clash. Lukaku, Correa, D’Ambrosio, and Brozovic started this game to bring some fresh legs into the lineup. Provedel was tested by the Croatian midfielder early on. The Nerazzurri were in control, and Mkhitaryan found the net around the 25th minute. But the linesman spoilt the celebrations with a late off-side call for Correa.

The Biancocelesti scored against the run of play as Anderson dispossessed Acerbi. He played a one-two with Alberto to get the lead in the first half. The former Lazio defender got dispossessed again, and Immobile curled a shot towards the far post. Onana made an excellent stop to deny the Italian striker, and Anderson could not capitalize on the rebound.
