Inter took another big step towards the Scudetto this Wednesday by dominating Sassuolo (2-1). This while Juve tamed Napoli (2-1).
No one should catch up with them now in the title race. Nine days from the end of italian championship, and while all the top players have the same number of matches on the clock, the Interiors soar in the standings after their success over Sassuolo in a late match of the 28e lifting of Serie A. Here they are indeed with a lead of eleven lengths on the route of the Scudetto.
The essential Lukaku (10e) and his attacking companion Martinez (67e) struck to ensure this tenth victory in a row for the Nerazzurri within the transalpine elite (2-1) – Traoré having reduced the gap at the end of the game for the Neroverdi (85e). What does it matter for the Milanese, who are looking more than ever at their Rossoneri rivals, who have only one point of margin compared to the Bianconeri.
Vice-champion goal for Juve
At the same time indeed, the Juve disposed of Napoli as part of the famous poster of the 3e act of Serie A given time lost on the green carpet to the Neapolitans (2-1). To do this, as often, the Old Lady was able to rely on Ronaldo (13e), author of his 25e achievement of the season. Dybala having taken charge of spicing up the bill as money time approaches (73e) when Insigne saved the honor of the Partenopei from the penalty spot at the very end of the game (90e).
A result undoubtedly saving for Andrea Pirlo and his players who could see the competition embodied by Napoli, Atalanta or Lazio come back very recently on their heels. Admittedly won in the race for the Scudetto – 12 units behind by Inter – Juventus can certainly seek second place in the Italian hierarchy. A lesser evil.
