(EFE) .- A goal by Italian full-back Matteo Darmian with fifteen minutes remaining gave Inter Milan a 1-0 win at San Siro against Hellas Verona and reinforced their leadership in Serie A, momentarily with thirteen points ahead of Milan, second, with five days remaining.
Antonio Conte’s team remains intractable at San Siro, where they have not lost a league game since last October, when they surrendered in the derby against Milan, and it is only a matter of time before they lift their nineteenth league title.
The officers could arrive next week and will culminate an excellent season at the national level for the Interistas, already very close to ending a nine-year dominance of Juventus.
The victory is particularly important for Inter, who had come off two straight draws, against Napoli and Spezia, which also kept their direct rivals with some options.
Conte’s men were clearly superior to Verona, but they lacked a punch, with Argentine Lautaro Martínez who forgave a great chance after three minutes, and also a bit of luck, when Moroccan Achraf Hakimi, a former Real Madrid player, crashed a free kick. direct on a pole.
But the visiting wall collapsed in the 76th minute, when Achraf, after a great play by Chilean Alexis Sánchez, gave Darmian a good ball so that he entered the area and surpassed the goalkeeper with a shot with his right leg that surprised Marco Silvestri.
It was the conquest that gave Inter three points and that increased the pressure on Milan, second, who visit Lazio this Monday.
