Roma (EFE) – The Belgian Romelu Lukaku, with a double, and the Argentine Lautaro Martínez and the Chilean Alexis Sánchez, with a goal each, raised their voices this Sunday and allowed Inter Milan to overcome an adverse 0-2 against him Torino and prevail 4-2 in the duel of the eighth round of Serie A, before taking on Real Madrid this Wednesday in the Champions League.
The team of coach Antonio Conte was against the ropes, with the San Siro luminous that scored 0-2 in the 62nd, but reacted with pride and found themselves with victory in Serie A after two consecutive draws.
The interista team, without the Serbian Aleksandar Kolarov or the Croatian Marcelo Brozovic, both of them out due to coronavirus, experienced another extremely complicated game after a somewhat brilliant start to the season, with just three victories in the previous ten duels played before the national break.
Although there are only three days left until the meeting with Real Madrid, Antonio Conte did not give up Lukaku and Nicoló Barella, but he did leave Lautaro and Dutchman Stefan De Vrij on the bench at the beginning, who entered the second half.
And the match was uphill for the Interistas, who received the 0-1 ten seconds before the break, the work of ex-Valencianista Simone Zaza, and the 0-2 at game time with a penalty awarded by the VAR and transformed by Argentine Cristian Ansaldi, who did not celebrate being a former Inter player.
The second penalty was awarded to Torino several minutes late and when Inter, who had continued playing, was about to launch a direct free kick on the other side of the field. It could have been a definitive psychological blow, but the reaction from within was immediate.
In the space of five minutes, Alexis closed the gap by first finishing off a loose ball in the penalty area and the Chilean forward himself hung up another center that Lukaku finished off to reestablish the tie.
He attacked with all of Inter in the final stretch and got in the 84th minute, after another long VAR control, the penalty that Lukaku safely scored to complete the comeback.
The Belgian’s seventh goal was followed in the 90th minute by an assist for Lautaro to sign the final 4-2 goal at will.
The “LuLa” returned, as the Lukaku-Lautaro couple is nicknamed in Italy, who celebrated their goals together and told Real Madrid, who will visit San Siro next Wednesday in the Champions League.
