Lazio beats Inter with a controversial goal

Lazio beats Inter with a controversial goal

A controversial goal led Inter Milan to their first defeat of the season, 3-1 to Lazio.

Felipe Anderson scored the winning goal in the final minutes as Inter central defender Federico Dimarco lay injured on the pitch.

The goal infuriated the Nerazzurri, but the regulations state that the referee should stop actions only when there is a risk of further injury, and this was not the case.

Inter players were asking Lazio to get the ball off the field when Brazilian Anderson deflected a rebound after a shot from Ciro Immobile.

Sergej Milinković-Savić secured the three points for Lazio with a header in stoppage time, while Inter remained off-focus.

Immobile equalized from a penalty after Ivan Perišić opened the scoring in the same way in the first half.

It was a bitter return to the Stadio Olímpico for Inter’s new manager, Simone Inzaghi, who has led Lazio for the past five seasons after spending most of his playing career with the capital club.

Inzaghi admitted: “we lost our minds.”

“It shouldn’t have happened, because the referee can allow the actions to continue and there were more than 10 minutes left plus the aggregate. We should have kept playing ”.

Inter remained in third place, four points behind Napoli and two points behind Milan. Napoli host Torino on Sunday.

Lazio, who advanced to fifth place, have been slow to adjust to Maurizio Sarri’s dizzying style, but they beat Roma last month and are becoming a dangerous opponent.


An own goal by Koray Günter completed Milan’s comeback, which beat Verona 4-3.

After Gianluca Caprari and Antonin Barak gave Verona a 2-0 lead after just 24 minutes, Olivier Giroud approached Milan with a header after almost an hour of play, Franck Kessie scored a penalty and Günter deflected a cross to his own goal.

The shot that made the difference came shortly after Zlatan Ibrahimović returned to play after injury. In contrast, center forward Ante Rebić had to leave in the first half due to a physical problem.

In another result, Ukraine’s Viktor Kovalenko – on loan from Atalanta – delivered an assist and scored the winning goal as Spezia came from behind to defeat Salernitana 2-1 and exit the relegation zone.

It’s the first weekend in Serie A since stadium capacity increased to 75%. AP (HN)
