Inter Milan secured an important victory against Sassuolo at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium, winning 4-2 in the 35th round of the Italian League. The game saw an impressive performance from Inter Milan’s striker, Romelu Lukaku, who scored two goals and played a key role in the team’s victory.
The match started with an early chance for Sassuolo, as David Frazzi got a through ball that he launched into the area before he fell, calling for a penalty kick. However, the referee did not see a violation.
Inter Milan responded with a long pass to Lukaku, who fired a powerful shot, but defender Ruan Tresoldi put his foot to push the ball out of the field. The referee canceled a goal from Sassuolo’s Domenico Berardi, who scored after a cross from the right passed by everyone to reach Francesco Lorient on the left.
Inter Milan continued to push forward, but Sassuolo exploited the absence of defensive control from Inter and created some chances of their own. Matias Henrique met a cross from the right with a header that passed along the left post of Inter Milan’s goalkeeper, Samir Handanovic.
Inter Milan almost took the lead in the 36th minute when Lautaro Martinez received a perfect cross from Federico Dimarco and turned it with a header that passed just above Andrea Conselli’s crossbar. However, the first goal of the match came from Lukaku in the 42nd minute. After a long pass from Danilo D’Ambrosio, Lukaku received the ball outside the penalty area, spun past Tresoldi, and fired a missile into the net.
In the second half, Inter Milan continued to dominate, and Martinez almost scored a goal in the first minutes of the half but fired a shot higher than the goal. Dimarco also came close to adding a second goal with a missile from the 6-yard area, but Sassuolo’s defender, Vlad Chiriches, hit the ball with his foot and went out for a corner.
Inter Milan finally managed to double their lead in the 55th minute when Bellanova hit a weak ball that defender Tresoldi accidentally turned into his own net. Martinez increased the score for Inter Milan with a third goal, with a shot that hit Tresoldi and passed into the net in the 58th minute.
Sassuolo managed to reduce the score in the 63rd minute when Henrique scored a header from an elaborate cross sent by Berardi. Sassuolo came close to their second goal with a double chance in the 76th minute, but Handanovic made an impressive save to block Frazzi’s header.
However, a minute later, Sassuolo managed to score their second goal through Frazzi, while Handanovic just watched it inside his own net. In the 89th minute, Inter Milan organized a quick counterattack that reached Marcelo Brozovic, who passed deep into Sassuolo’s defense to Lukaku. The Belgian striker penetrated the defense and fired a shot to score his second goal of the match and end the game 4-2 in favor of Inter Milan.
