Lautaro Martinez scored again but Inter Milan had to be content with a share of the spoils as the Serie A leader drew 1-1 at second-place Juventus on Sunday (Nov 26). Martinez’s 13th league goal of the season canceled out Dusan Vlahovic’s opener in the Derby d’Italia. Inter remained two points above Juve. Third-place AC Milan is six points behind its city rival, with defending champion Napoli two points further back in fourth. Both Milan and Napoli played on Saturday. Inter face another tough trip next weekend when it visit Napoli.
Lautaro Martinez ensured that Inter Milan kept hold of their two-point lead at the top of Serie A as he struck in Sunday's (Nov 26) scrappy 1-1 draw at closest rivals Juventus.
Argentina forward Martinez swept home Marcus Thuram's low cross in the 33rd minute following fine play down the right flank from his strike partner, to keep second-placed Juve at arm's length in the title race. His 15th goal in all competitions brought Inter level six minutes after Dusan Vlahovic broke a two-month scoring duck with a similar first-time finish at the Allianz Stadium in Turin.
The stalemate ended a six-match winning streak in all competitions for Inter, who are favourites to claim a 20th Scudetto ahead of AC Milan who have also won the league 19 times.
Simone Inzaghi's side have come through the first of a series of tough tests with a Champions League trip to Benfica next up on Wednesday before they face Napoli in Naples next Sunday.
They have already reached the last 16 of Europe's top competition but are battling with Real Sociedad for top spot in Group D with the Spanish outfit travelling to Milan next month.
