Inter in blood form heading for Champions League final, Lazio secures spot two
Inter are working toward the Champions League final in blistering form. With the win over Torino (0-1), the Milanese have now won 11 of their last 12 official duels.
Lazio secured spot two in Serie A by winning on a visit to Empoli (0-2).
A special moment at Inter was the crowd change for Samir Handanovic. The Slovenian goalkeeper (38) was supplanted under the crossbar by André Onana this season and seems to be on his way out after eleven years of loyal service. Marcelo Brozovic popped the only goal on the board from distance.
Furthermore, the revived Romelu Lukaku applied for a starting place. The Belgian striker is getting better and better in form and, as a result, seems to have the best papers to start alongside Lautaro Martínez against Manchester City a week from now.
Enough to take over spot two from Lazio, however, Inter’s win was not.
Indeed, the Romans won their season finale 2-0 through goals by Alessio Romagnoli and Luis Alberto. Lazio was already certain of participation in next season’s Champions League, as were champions Napoli, Inter and AC Milan.
