Inter took the lead of the match in the first half thanks to a Lukaku brace. Lukaku then combined with Lautaro to restore the two-goal lead following Milinkovic-Savic’s lucky goal.
These were the thoughts of Antonio Conte after the match:
“We’re showing significant mental strength and a certain consistency.”
“Romelu has shown a significant reaction like the whole team. Lautaro did too, but lots of them did well tonight.”
“Perisic put in a notable performance at both ends of the pitch and our defenders were perfect.”
“Christian is adapting to us and understanding what we want from him. The fact that he’s playing with consistency shows how he’s improving.”
“He was very alert today, not just in the attack, where he brings quality, but also in defense. He’s certainly an extra weapon for us and I’m calmer for having various options.”
“The next match is the Derby. It’ll be a great game between two teams with big ambitions.”
