Inter Milan conceded their first defeat of the season at Lazio Rome (3-1) on Friday during the 3rd day of Serie A, trapped by the Spanish entrants Luis Alberto and Pedro who tipped the match in the last fifteen minutes. Simone Inzaghi will still have to wait to bring back a point as Inter coach on the field of Lazio, the club where he spent most of his career as a player and then learned the trade of technician. Like last year (already 3-1 defeat), Inzaghi took a lesson in efficiency from his successor on the laziale bench, Maurizio Sarri. The latter aimed justly by launching Luis Alberto and Pedro just before the hour mark, while Inter Milan had just equalized by Lautaro Martinez (51st), in response to the opener from Felipe Anderson (40th) .
Luis Alberto restored the advantage to Lazio with a superb shot without control which left Samir Handanovic without reaction (75th). Pedro bent the meeting with a wrapped shot after a confused action in the Milan area (86th). With two wins and a draw in three matches, the capital club temporarily takes the lead in the standings (7 pts), one point ahead of Inter, who won their first two matches. In the other game of the day, Monza continued their difficult learning curve for their top flight debut with a third defeat in three games, at home to Udinese (1-2).
