Serie A – The Nerazzurri turned the score against Empoli and for now will be the leader of the tournament. Inter Milan needed Lautaro Martinez to win. A result that serves at least until Milan plays its match of the day.
By Facundo Di Bona (@facudibona).
Inter Milan was on the ropes. But finally, they will sleep Friday and Saturday, at least, as Serie A leaders. After coming back from a 0-2 deficit against an Empoli side that made things difficult for them in the first half.
With only two games left in the season, Inter Milan is in the lead with a single point ahead of Milan. They must play their match against Hellas Verona this matchday.

Inter Milan is still alive thanks to Lautaro Martinez. The Argentinian continued his spectacular form. And he scored a crucial brace.
His first goal came on the stroke of half-time. And the second on the hour mark with a great volley inside the box.
Famous evening for Lautaro Martinez. 2 goals that enhance Inter scudetto defense hopes.

A key piece
Martinez has 19 goals in Serie A and 23 in all tournaments. After the goal, the striker took off his shirt and was immediately replaced by Dzeko. Perhaps to save him for Wednesday’s Coppa Italia final against Juventus.
Before Lautaro’s show, Empoli scored two goals. That took advantage of the confusion that Inter Milan had.

The match also had its share of controversy for a penalty disallowed to Inter Milan. Although it was well by the VAR booth. But that saw complaints from Empoli for a previous foul on one of Martinez’s goals.
Anyway, Inter Milan kept looking and found what they wanted. In the final 4-2 by Alexis Sanchez, when the game was already settled, including a ball to the post by Dzeko.
