Lautaro Martinez came off as a substitute to net all four goals for Inter Milan as they hammered Salernitana to return to the top of Serie A.

Dominant Second Half Performance 

In an exhilarating match, Inter Milan managed to keep their opponents at bay for the first hour. However, the game took a dramatic turn when Argentina’s star forward, Lautaro Martinez, was substituted in nine minutes after the break. What followed was a remarkable display of skill as Martinez netted an astounding four goals in just 27 minutes, including one from the penalty spot.

Return to the Summit 

Before this match, Inter had slipped three points behind their city rivals, AC Milan, in the Serie A table. AC Milan had secured a 2-0 victory against Lazio earlier in the day. 

However, Inter’s outstanding performance allowed them to regain the top position, tied on points with AC Milan but leading on goal difference, with 18 points from seven matches.

Pulisic’s Contribution 

Christian Pulisic played a pivotal role in Inter’s success, giving them the lead on the hour mark at the San Siro. He capitalized on a bobbling pass from Rafael Leao, netting his third goal since joining Inter from Chelsea.

Late Seal of Victory 

Rafael Leao’s involvement was crucial once again as Inter sealed the victory in the 88th minute. The Portuguese winger made a brilliant run into the area and delivered a precise cutback, allowing Noah Okafor to slide the ball into the net.

Napoli’s Triumph 

In another Serie A fixture, Napoli secured their second victory in just four days. Victor Osimhen, who came off the bench, made an immediate impact by scoring in a convincing 4-0 win against Lecce. This win elevated Napoli to the third position in the Serie A standings.

Inter Milan’s stunning display and Romelu Lukaku’s incredible four-goal haul undoubtedly make this match a memorable chapter in Serie A history.
