With the result, the Milan team reached 71 points, 11 ahead of rival Milan, in second place; Juve beat Napoli with goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Dybala
It was not easy, but the Milan Internazionale took another step towards the title of Italian Championship, this Wednesday, by defeating the Sassuolo, 2-1, at Giuseppe Meazza, in a late game of the national competition. With the result, the Milan team reached 71 points, 11 ahead of the rival Milan, second place. Sassuolo remains with 40 points, in ninth place. Already in Turin, Juventus also had no easy work against Milan, but managed three points, taking third place on the table, with 59 points, but with nine rounds to be played, the dream of the tenth consecutive scudetto gets more and more unlikely. O Naples continues with 56, in fifth.
To reach the 22nd victory in the championship, Inter relied once again on the good performance of the Belgian Romelu Lukaku, who opened the scoring in a beautiful header (22nd goal in the championship), after ten minutes of the game, and assist the Argentine Lautaro Martinez to score the second, in the 22nd minute of the final stage. The effort of Sassuolo, who accepted the ‘exchange of blows’ during the 90 minutes and hit the leading team of the championship very well, was rewarded in part with the goal of honor scored by the Ivorian Hamed Traore, five minutes from the end of the game.
In Turin, Juventus and Napoli, who had similar campaigns, had a balanced duel. Cristiano Ronaldo, after losing an incredible chance, opened the scoring, in the 13th minute, when he first caught a cross from the right. It was the 26th goal of the Italian’s top scorer. The second goal of Juventus was scored in the 27th of the final stage by the Argentine Dybala, in a beautiful shot placed. Napoli took a penalty with Lorenzo Insigne from the penalty spot in the final moments.
