Another victory, the sixth in a row for theInter that launches escape in command. I’m 6 points ahead of Milan, held back by Udinese, after the 2-1 obtained at the Tardini. The postponement of matchday 25 goes to Conte’s team, three points deserved but not easy against Parma penultimate who, conversely, extends his fast from success to over three months (16 games).

The protagonist becomes Alexis Sanchez, brace for the Chilean exalted by the coach on the eve, another arrow of a monstre attack that feeds the march to the top waiting for Atalanta.
The chronicle of the race
There is the return of Hakimi and the relay between Sanchez and Lautaro, which initially rifiata: these are the only touches of Conte who relies on the typical training. Some more news for D’Aversa, who finds Brugman and Bani from suspensions and renews the defense (Osorio and Gagliolo on the outside). That’s not all: in the starting 4-3-1-2, where the attacking midfielder is Kucka, the former Karamoh and Man play in front. Immediately lively Hakimi who engages Sepe, but Parma is a good one in the first 45 minutes: Karamoh finds no luck from a distance, bravo Handanovic on Kurtic’s close-up header. Lukaku does not sting from the outside, while Hakimi is insidious and cannot find the winning assist for Eriksen by centimeters. Before the interval it is Sepe to answer present on Skriniar and Lukaku, final in the first half where Romelu and Man touch the target with their heads.
All Romanian relay between Man and Mihaila after the rest, but it is Inter to snatch with Sanchez at minute 54: Lukaku’s rebound is fortuitous and becomes an assist for the Chilean, good at overcoming Sepe and evading Gagliolo’s rescue. Eight minutes later it is double for Sanchez, which improves last year’s league tally (5 goals against 4) by taking advantage of Lukaku’s progression and perfect assist (eighth in Serie A). D’Aversa resorted to the changes and returned to the game with Hernani, a winning volley on Pezzella’s cross, but not even the debut granted to Pellè gives a draw at the end credits. Three points for Inter that never stops.
