Lazio vs.  Internazionale - Match Report - October 16, 2021

(AP) – A controversial goal led Inter Milan to lose their first game of the season on Saturday, a 3-1 loss to Lazio.

Felipe Anderson scored the winning goal in the final minutes as Inter central defender Federico Dimarco lay injured on the pitch.

The goal infuriated Inter, but the regulations indicate that the referee should stop the actions only when there is a risk of a major injury, and this was not the case.

Inter’s players were asking Lazio to get the ball off the field when Anderson deflected a rebound off Ciro Immobile’s shot.

Sergej Milinković-Savić secured the three points for Lazio with a header in stoppage time, while Inter remained off-focus.

Immobile tied a penalty after Ivan Perišić opened the scoring in the same way in the first half.

It was a bitter return to the Stadio Olímpico for Inter’s new coach, Simone Inzaghi, who led Lazio for the past five seasons after spending most of his playing career with the capital club.

Inzaghi admitted that “We lost our minds.”

“It shouldn’t have happened, because the referee can allow the actions to continue and there were more than 10 minutes left plus the aggregate. We should have kept playing.”

Inter remained in third position, four points behind Napoli and two units behind Milan. Napoli host Torino on Sunday.

Lazio, who advanced to fifth place, They have been slow to adapt to Maurizio Sarri’s fast-paced style, but they beat Roma last month and are becoming a dangerous opponent.
