Inter strengthened their grip on third place, as Keita Balde’s lone marker in the 72nd minute was enough to secure a 1-0 victory over Empoli on Saturday.

With Lazio being held by Torino at home, it was the former Biancoceleste forward who turned the Nerazzurri’s possession into three points with a shot from distance that managed to find a way past Ivan Provedel.

As a result, Inter now hold a seven-point advantage for third spot – a welcome position for Luciano Spalletti’s men as they head into 2019.
