Lautaro Martinez scored twice for Inter in their 3-0 win vs. AC Milan.

Martinez managed goals number 12 and 13 for himself in the season as Inter extend their position as league leaders with four points ahead of second place Milan. Lautaro would give Inter the 1-0 lead following great work by Lukaku as he would cross the ball into the penalty area and Lautaro would score with a header.

The Argentine would make it 2-0 to Inter with a poacher like finish. A ball into the penalty area would find the 23 year old who would score from close range to double Inter’s lead. After having gone goalless in four matches, he now has four goals in his last four league matches.

  1. I managed to watch the lille vs Ajax match and Nico was kicking ass and taking names, the dutch media and fans are singing his praises and are calling for him to be a starter, infact the fans have been calling for him to be a starter all season long, which is good to see.

    Watched the Udinese match and De Paul was a beast, honestly if he was in a team with a competent striker he’d have assists in the double digits, a truly fantastic player.
    Also Molina continues to impress (played an entire half) and his attacking prowess is seriously impressive, now it’s still too early to call him up for the WCQ but if he continues to perform throughout the season he should be considered for copa, afterall it’s not like Argentina is spoiled for choice at the RB position.

  2. Lukaku is currently leading Serie A top scorers with 17 goals. Lautaro is at 13 goals.
    Although… Lukaku gets all the penalties for Inter. 4 of his league goals come from penalties. If Lautaro had taken them and scored those 4, he would be leading Serie A atm

  3. I think given what we’ve seen from Scaloni and all the injuries and suspensions, this is the line-up we could expect from him vs Uruguay

    GK (Armani or Andrada but I hope it’s Emi or at least Musso)

    Montiel Pezzella Quarta Tagliafico
    Paredes
    De Paul Palacios
    Messi Lautaro J.Correa

  5. 1) Those were bullet goals in such a crucial derby & more importantly the juncture of Serie A standings. I think critics of Lautaro try to push this narrative of inconsistency & his conversion rate being low. But in reality the guy is still 23 , does well when stakes are high & easily has another 4-5 years of peak time. With Lukaku being the spearhead , Lautaro has to sacrifice more at Inter . His press is also very good . NT is really blessed to have Lautaro & he is the undisputed starter for us.
    2) It was also heartening to see Aguero now in sub bench at City. With another 1 month to go before WCQ , Aguero should be match fit.
    3) Alario – again a strong sub to have in squad. His scoring frequency is among the best in Europe – just that a NEVERKUSEN has a dumbhead coach & hence lesser minutes.

    At this point – Locelso is a worry . Mourinho in weekend said Locelso is still few weeks away from an injury comeback. Palacios is not getting a minute post injury. Macclister / Lamela may be needed to beef midfield in March. Nico G also is expected to be a miss while Ocampos & Acuna are surely going to miss WCQ march games. So J Correa will be key.
