After Sunday’s 2-1 win over Sampdoria, Romelu Lukaku gave a rallying cry to his Inter teammates as they moved six points behind Serie A leaders Juventus.
During the main half at San Siro, both Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez were on goal as Inter skipped back in the semi-finals from their Coppa Italia aggregate misfortune to Napoli.
In the opening 45 minutes, Antonio Conte’s side was smooth, yet after the interval, they took off their foot from the gas, and Morten Thorsby pulled one back to battle Sampdoria.
The success, be that as it may, saw Inter stay in Juve’s touching distance and Lazio ‘s second-placed, five points above the Nerazzurri with 12 remaining games.
“Win was really important as it’s 12 finals from this point until the finish of the season, they ‘re all last chance,” Lukaku told Sky Sport Italia ahead of Wednesday’s clash with mid-table Sassuolo.
“We presently have to concentrate on Wednesday and get started up. Starting now and into the foreseeable future all games are tough and they won’t be easy for anyone. We have been functioning admirably in training, the team is physically fit as a fiddle, however, we have to continue onward and get considerably more grounded because it will be a game like clockwork,” he added.
Lukaku ‘s tenth-moment opener took his tally to 18 goals in his first season in Serie A since 1990, a number that just Ruben Sosa, Ronaldo, and Diego Milito have recently achieved in their presentation campaigns with Inter.
Rejecting two different chances, he was liable of when Inter were well on top. Conte was frustrated because his team didn’t end the game earlier.
“You have to kill the adversary whenever you have the chance,” added Conte, who was as yet disappointed with Inter’s second-leg draw against Napoli eight days earlier.
