Salernitana vs.  Internazionale - Match Report - December 17, 2021

(EFE) – Inter established itself in the leadership of Serie A after beating bottom side, Salernitana, 5-0 with goals from Ivan Perisic, Denzel Dumfries, Alexis Sánchez, Lautaro Martínez and Roberto Gagliardini; at the beginning of the eighteenth day.

Inter will remain in first place at the end of the day, whatever Milan does. At the moment, waiting for the clash that he has to play against Napoli, he is four points away. Salernitana did not surprise and Simone Inzaghi’s men continue with their great streak of consecutive victories: they already have six.

The bottom was no rival. In any moment. From the beginning, he dropped to his knee. Perisic’s early goal, with a great header at eleven minutes, put an end to the resistance of the last classified in Serie A, who definitively lost his way shortly before the break with a great goal from Dumfries.

The Dutch player has definitely established himself on the right wing and Achraf Hakimi has definitely passed into oblivion. With a shoe at the end of a play started with a great pass from Brozovic that Dzeko closed with an assist, he showed that he is a first-line player and very important at Inter.

After the break, there was no mercy for Salernitana. Inter demonstrated practicing internalized football, playing with constant first-rate touches with which Salernitana succumbed without being able to do anything at all.

With that script, the rest of the goals came cascading. Alexis Sánchez, in the middle of a wave of rumors about his departure from Inter, made the third after signing a great personal move; Lautaro Martínez, in 78, made the fourth with a shot from the penalty spot; and, almost at the end, on the horn, Gagliardini closed a win by a team that passed the steamroller.
