STADIO GIUSEPPE MEAZZA (Milan) – Inter proved too much to handle for a Roma side who saw their 12-match unbeaten streak halted by the Nerazzurri, who scored three times before conceding a late goal to the visitors.
While the Biscione offered an impressive collective performance, Marcelo Brozovic shone again as he scored a cracker in the first half with a superb finish which showed how complete his set of skills is.
Beyond playing a vital role in Inter’s build-up, the midfielder is giving a major contribution in his side’s offensive production in what is arguably the most delicate moment of the season.
