STADIO GIUSEPPE MEAZZA (Milan) – Inter have their defenders to thank for their 2-1 victory over Lazio, which saw Alessandro Bastoni and Milan Skriniar score in both halves in a hard-fought match in Milan.
Notably, it was the Italian defender who made the difference by opening the scoring against a solid and brave Biancocelesti side, before producing a nice assist which was perfectly met by the Slovakian.

Handanovic 5.5; Skriniar 7, De Vrij 5, Bastoni 7.5; Dumfries 6.5 (76′ Darmian 6), Barella 6 (82′ Vidal n/r), Brozovic 6, Gagliardini 5.5, Perisic 6.5 (82′ Dimarco n/r); Sanchez 6.5 (73′ Correa 5.5), Lautaro Martinez 6 (73′ Dzeko 6).
PLAYER OF THE MATCH – ALESSANDRO BASTONI
After a long series of good and brave displays, the 22-year-old defender got the reward he deserved, finding his first goal of the season in a delicate phase of the game, as well as assisting his side’s second goal of the night.
Bastoni’s offensive presence is becoming a trademark of Simone Inzaghi’s Inter and, coupled with his constant contribution in the team’s build-up, makes the Italian one of the key pieces of the Biscione.
