Overtaken by Juventus Turin, victorious the day before Cagliari (2-1), Inter took back control of Serie A by signing their fourth consecutive victory, the tenth in twelve days. Simone Inzaghi's team, which ensured its qualification for the round of 16 of the Champions League on Wednesday by winning in Salzburg (1-0), opened the scoring in the 43rd minute thanks to Dimarco. Starting on the counterattack and completely eccentric on the left flank, the Italian international surprised Frosinone goalkeeper Stefano Turati, far from his line, with a 56 m warhead passed just under the crossbar.
Returning from the locker room, the “Nerazzurri” doubled the lead after a slalom in the penalty area from Marcus Thuram, stopped by a foul. Hakan Calhanoglu, infallible in this exercise, converted the penalty, his fourth this season in the championship (48th). With 31 points, Inter are two points ahead of Juventus, the only team to follow their infernal pace. After the international break, Juventus hosts Inter on November 26 for an “Italian derby” resembling a first leg final for the title.
