(EFE) – A goal by the Danish Christian Eriksen twenty minutes from time, signed in added time by the Moroccan Achraf Hakimi, gave Inter Milan a 2-0 victory this Saturday at the Crotone field, already mathematically relegated to Serie B, and left the Scudetto one step away from Antonio Conte’s team.
The official status of the nineteenth league title may already arrive this Sunday, if Atalanta does not win in the Sassuolo field. If not, Conte’s men will have enough to add a point next week against Sampdoria to be champions.
The Milanese team currently has 82 points, fourteen more than Atalanta, who still have one game less, with three games remaining.
At the Scida stadium, Inter needed 69 minutes before they could break the equality, despite creating a lot of opportunities and running into the posts twice in the first half, first with a header from the Belgian Romelu Lukaku and then with a right hand. of the Argentine Lautaro Martínez.
It was Eriksen, with a powerful right hand from the edge of the area after an excellent combination between Lukaku and Chilean Alexis Sánchez, who was in charge of breaking down the Crotone wall.
After starting his stage in Milan with very little prominence, the Dane has achieved an important role in Conte’s balance, which gave way to him this Saturday in the 65th minute replacing Stefano Sensi.
It was the ex-Madridista Achraf who sentenced the crash in the 92nd minute to the counterattack, by overcoming the goal in a heads up with an accurate shot with his left foot.
For Inter, it is only a matter of knowing when the celebrations for their nineteenth league title can begin, the one that ends nine consecutive Juventus “Scudettos”.
