Inter Register A Few New Records in Victory over Empoli

Inter quickly returned to winning ways against Empoli after the stumble against Napoli. They are now 11 points away from clinching their 20th Scudetto. Simone Inzaghi tallied his 100th victory at the club, OneFootball informs.

The Nerazzurri have scored in every matchday, therefore, 30 times in a row. They matched the only other team that did so, 2013/2014’s Juventus. Emil Audero relieved Yann Sommer on goal against the Tuscan side, but the outcome didn’t change. They collected their 19th clean sheet. They have allowed just 14 goals, a club record at this point of the season.

Inter stars Federico Dimarco and Alexis Sanchez had momentous goals. The fullback hit the net for the fifth time, tying his single-season best with eight games to go. In the last 20 Serie A seasons, only Maicon and Achraf Hakimi have contributed to more goals in a campaign counting assists too.

Instead, the veteran became the most prolific Chilean in the history of the Nerazzurri. He scored for the 38th time, surpassing Arturo Vidal. He’s ten goals shy of Mauricio Pinilla’s Serie A leadership.

The only negative note for Inter was Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram once again missing the target. The Argentine hasn’t put his name in the stat sheet in over a month, while the French star last did it on February 16th. They were seemingly the most affected by their Champions League elimination form and morale-wise.
