UDINE – Despite the heavy absences of Lautaro Martinez and Samir Handanovic, Inter managed to win in Udine, with a brace from Lukaku , and recovered second place in the standings. The Nerazzurri have responded to the victories of Juve and Lazio and have gone to two more on the Biancocelesti (who will recover the home game against Verona next week) and less than three from the league leaders Juventus.
Inter, Conte wins with the changes and with the Lukaku show. Out the disappointing Eriksen and Esposito.
Inter took more than an hour to unlock the Udine match. In the first half, the Nerazzurri did not play well and at the beginning of the second half they devoured a comfortable scoring opportunity with the baby Esposito. Eriksen has yet to enter Conte's schemes, he has taken a lot of goodwill but he has not been able to affect the Udine match. The turning point was close to 60 'when Conte guessed the changes by calling on the bench the disappointing Esposito and Eriksen to put Sanchez and Brozovic on the field, two players who knew how to change the face of the match.
Shortly after their entry on the field, Inter unlocked the match with the usual Lukaku. The Belgian center forward received the ball from Barella and beat Musso with a large left foot at the far post. At 70 ', Sanchez won a rebound and presented himself in front of Musso who could not help but spread him. Net penalty. From eleven meters, Lukaku scored his sixteenth goal in the championship displacing the extreme defender of Udinese.
Thanks to this success, Inter remains in the running for the Scudetto but new purchases have yet to integrate into Conte's schemes. Udinese is knocked out but was still the protagonist of a good performance. The Bianconeri have a reassuring advantage of eight points over the relegation zone.
