Even playing away from home, Antonio Conte’s Internazionale continues achieving good results. This time, the Nerazzurri team visited Brescia at the Mario Rigamonti Stadium and once again counted on their decisive front-duo composed by Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez to grab an away win over Brescia 2-1. Lautaro opened the scoring, Lukaku augmented the Nerazzuri advantage, but Inter’s Skriniar with an own goal gave Brescia a late hope. But at the end, 2-1 Internazionale in Matchday 10 in the Italian Serie A.
The visitors from Milan began the game up to score and almost did so through Lukaku, who nearly opened the scoring in the opening minutes. Then, it was up to Lautaro to do all the work. At the 23 minute mark, Lautaro received from De Vrij, powered home and tried from outside the box. The ball deflected off a Brescia defender and went over the goalkeeper and to the back of the net. 0-1 Internazionale.
After the break, Brescia came back better and pressed Inter for the equalizer, and when the home side seemed to be closer to level, Lukaku was keen to put a brake on the momentum of the home owners. The Belgian striker received down the right flank, cut inside to the middle and released a beautiful left-footed shot, with no chance for the goalkeeper. 0-2 Inter with 63 on the clock.
Brescia did not get discouraged with the second goal conceded and kept pushing for at least a goal. It came out on 76 mins as Bisoli came face-to-face with Handanovic as he tried to round the Milan keeper, but Milan Skriniar’s desperate clearance attempt ended up in an own goal, reducing Inter’s advantage.
Surely Brescia went on to get the equalizer and absurdly pressed Internazionale. However, the Milan team could hold the hosts and get away with the three points.
