Inter wins thanks to Lautaro Martinez. At Salernitana’s home, the Nerazzurri won 4-0 thanks to the poker of the Argentine striker, who came on in the second half and changed the game: Inzaghi’s team responded to Milan, both Milanese teams are now on 18 points. The Nerazzurri will take on Benfica on Tuesday evening, then there will be the match against Bologna. Many opportunities, yes, but also many errors in precision in the first half to forget. Inter immediately attacked the match by collecting scoring opportunities repeatedly, starting with Thuram’s header extended for a corner by Ochoa: within a matter of minutes Sanchez missed a direct turn from inside the small area, then Dumfries kicked a ball high that arrived on the right following the development of a throw-in. After letting the Nerazzurri let off steam, Salernitana took control of the game by clogging up the spaces and appearing in front of Sommer first with Cabral and then with Kastanos, one step away from the lead after releasing a poisonous left-footed shot from the edge.

Cabral himself, a few minutes before the end of the first half, scared Inzaghi’s band with a violent conclusion from an off-centre position. The usual three substitutions – Mkhitaryan, Asllani and Lautaro respectively for Klaassen, Calhanoglu and Sanchez – gave a shock only after a quarter of an hour: in the 17th minute Lautaro recovered the ball by serving Thuram, the Frenchman put a ball in with his right turns transformed into a goal by the Argentine striker. After four minutes there was an immediate reaction from the Campania team, but Legowski’s equalizer was annulled due to an irregular position by the Pole. The number 10’s magical quarter of an hour came to fruition in the 32nd minute: Barella’s ball slightly behind, perfect for the first-time turn and the 2-0 goal. Then the show, first in the 40th minute on a penalty kick, then in the 44th minute on an assist from Carlos Augusto.

Milan beat Lazio 2-0 thanks to goals from Pulisic and Okafor, confirming first place and leaving the Biancocelesti to lick their wounds after a disastrous start to the season. Sarri has to give up Immobile, who came out battered from the match against Torino, while Pioli focuses on Giroud and Leao up front. Initial study phases, then it’s Felipe Anderson who opens the curtain by doing everything alone, but his left-footed shot ends up on the outside of the net while shortly after it’s Zaccagni who tests Maignan’s reflexes who responds to the central conclusion. Milan grind out the game, but lose Loftus-Cheek to injury just before the half hour mark with Pioli bringing on Musah in his place. The big opportunity for the Rossoneri came almost at the end of the first half: the cross from the right found Giroud ready for the attack, the Frenchman’s turn was blocked by Provedel who didn’t hold back. Rejinders arrives on the rebound and, from two steps away, chews up the ball, taking the post and eating up the lead just a moment before referee Massa blows the whistle twice to send the teams to the locker rooms.
The second half begins under the banner of Pioli’s team, which attacks the match trying to take control of the game. And the work paid off in the 60th minute when Leao went down the left and served a back ball into the area for the onrushing Pulisic. First left from the American and the ball swells the net, bending Provedel’s hands for the Rossoneri’s lead that seals the match. Lazio is unable to react, Sarri tries with substitutions but it is always Milan, first with Musah and then with Pulisic, who cause fear before Okafor, two minutes from the end, closes the score with the doubling goal which gives Milan more three points and Lazio, who also had Pedro’s goal annulled due to Immobile’s offside, another defeat that makes this start to the season even more difficult for the Biancocelesti.

Second consecutive victory for Napoli, who in the first of three advance matches of the seventh day of Serie A, travel to Lecce. At Via del Mare it ends 4-0 for the Neapolitans thanks to goals from Ostigard, Osimhen, Gaetano and Politano. With this success, Garcia’s team reaches 14 points in the standings, momentarily moving to -1 from the top pairing Inter-Milan, while D’Aversa’s men, forced into their second knockout in a row, remain stuck at 11. match is unlocked once the quarter of an hour of play has struck, when from a nice free kick by Zielinski, Ostigard’s winning header arrives which makes it 1-0 for the visitors. The Salento team, however, were not willing and responded first with Krstovic, well blocked by Meret, then with Pongracic who fired high from a few meters from a corner situation. Having escaped the double danger, the Azzurri showed up again around the 40th minute, with Simeone trying from outside the area, narrowly missing the target.

At the start of the second half, Garcia opted to insert Osimhen in place of the ‘cholitò, and the Nigerian immediately made his mark just six minutes after his introduction: cross from Kvaratskhelia from the left, header from the Neapolitan striker and it was 2-0. Lecce immediately tried to respond, but in the 56th minute they saw Strefezza’s goal canceled out (previously by Krstovic) which would have immediately reopened the match. As the minutes pass, the pace drops, the Neapolitans calmly manage the double advantage and in the final they also find some space forward to put the exclamation point on the three points: in the 88th minute it is Gaetano who signs the 3-0 with a nice right foot crossed from the edge of the area, then a few moments later he earned the penalty kick which Politano transformed into the final 4-0.
