Inter show signs of vulnerability despite fine Lazio win

Simone Inzaghi’s message as Inter prepared to go into the second half of the campaign, unbeaten in the league since October, was simple: “I hope the team can pick up from where we left off before Christmas.”

And in many ways, the reigning champions did just that.

A 2-1 victory at home to Lazio – the only Serie A club that beat Inter before they broke out the panettone – on Sunday evening, extended the Nerazzurri’s winning run to eight consecutive league matches. Three points moved Inzaghi’s side back above their city rivals Milan at the top of the table, with the cushion of a point and a game.

However, in an entertaining contest against Italy’s most erratic outfit, the cloak of invincibility that Inter’s blistering end to 2021 had begun to drape over their shoulders showed hints of slipping.

Although at first the two and a half week gap break seemed to have left the Nerazzurri well-rested rather than rusty.
