Inter Player Ratings vs Lazio: Lukaku Sets Up Epic Comeback

Against Lazio, it was the Romelu Lukaku show as the striker helped Inter storm back to win 3-1 at the San Siro. The comeback overshadowed a terrible performance from Francesco Acerbi, who committed several turnovers on the backline in his worst match in an Inter jersey.

Andre Onana – 8

The goalkeeper made several strong saves, but he had no chance to stop Felipe Anderson’s close-range opening goal.

Danilo D’Ambrosio – 6

D’Ambrosio had a decent first half and was not at fault for Lazio’s first-half goal. However, Inzaghi removed the defender at halftime, shifting Matteo Darmian into his position and bringing on Denzel Dumfries.

Alessandro Bastoni – 6.5

Even though Bastoni was not as influential in the attack as usual, the defender had a quiet but effective day on the backline.

Francesco Acerbi – 3

Despite having a strong season so far, Acerbi had perhaps the worst match of his short tenure with the Nerazzurri. The defender turned the ball over on the backline multiple times, leading to an easy goal for Felipe Anderson, and he struggled to deal with the Brazilian’s pace and agility.

Matteo Darmian – 5.5

During the first half, Darmian looked uncomfortable in his right wing-back position. He struggled to influence play on the wing and ultimately returned to centre-back in the second half.

Federico Dimarco – 7

On the left wing, Dimarco had a solid showing, putting himself in dangerous positions and building attacks for Inter in the channel.

Marcelo Brozovic – 7

In a box-to-box midfield role, Brozovic provided vital support for his side. He was a constant presence for Inter, helping the hosts dominate possession while progressing the ball vertically.

Nicolo Barella – 7

The diminutive midfielder was one of the hosts’ most consistent players, attacking with vigor and creativity in the final third.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – 6

In the attacking midfield, Mkhitaryan took a few well-struck shots, but he was unable to find the back of the net. Otherwise, he fared decently in the midfield, though his age showed at times.

Romelu Lukaku – 8

While the striker managed few good shooting chances, his hold-up play and layoffs were integral to Inter’s successful comeback. Lukaku created chances for his teammates throughout the match, setting up Lautaro Martinez’s late equalizer and Gosens’ game-winner.

Joaquin Correa – 4

At striker, Correa had an uninspiring performance. While he seemed to register an assist on a goal that was called back, he otherwise did little for his side. When the Argentine got on the ball, his passing was poor, and he never truly threatened the Biancocelesti defense.


Denzel Dumfries – 4

After taking the field in relief of D’Ambrosio, Dumfries made a truly baffling decision. When Lukaku squared the ball to the wing-back in the box, he seemingly had a free chance at the back-post, but he instead fired the ball aimlessly back across the face of the goal.

Hakan Calhanoglu – 5

The Turk never quite got into the rhythm of the match, taking several ill-advised shots when there were better options available.

Lautaro Martinez – 8

Just when it seemed Inter were doomed to drop out of the top six, Martinez struck with a wonderful sliding goal to equalize, and he later picked up a brace with an easy one-on-one conversion.

Robin Gosens – 7

The wing-back truly put his body on the line, injuring himself as he scored an epic game-winner late in the match.

Stefan De Vrij – N/A
