INTER PLAYER OF THE MATCH – Lautaro Martinez
Despite having put his name on the scoreline during Inter’s previous two games, Lautaro Martinez’s desire to leave his derby penalty miss behind was clear when he was seen discussing with Hakan Calhanoglu about who was supposed to shoot from the spot. The Argentine eventually did his job, scoring his third Serie A goal in a row after a spectacular first half back-heel pass which paved the way for Roberto Gagliardini’s opener.
