Lautaro Martinez has been magnificent this season and carried Inter scoring-wise, but Simone Inzaghi has created a machine that operates just fine even when El Toro doesn’t hit the net, like in the last two matches. He has yet to go three in a row without putting his name in the stat sheet.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Nerazzurri have the best goal difference across Europe (+43) and have been particularly ferocious in big matches. They have prevailed in nine out of ten, drawing the remaining one, and triumphed twice in the Saudi Supercoppa.
Inter have bagged 55 goals, 8 more than the second team in that respect, Milan. They are averaging 2.4 goals per match. The projection indicates they could finish with 91, more than Napoli and the Rossoneri in the past two title-winning seasons.
Martinez tops the capocannoniere chart with 19 goals, but they have spread the wealth too. They have had had 12 different scorers in Serie A, 14 considering all competitions. Marcus Thuram and Hakan Calhanoglu have found the target nine times each.
Inter have been versatile stylistically and timing-wise, as the distribution is homogenous. They usually turn it up near the end of the first half (13 goals) and in the final 15 minutes (15). They are among the teams that run the most. La Beneamata hasn’t gotten much production from their backup strikers Marko Arnautovic and Alexis Sanchez, but their secondary weapons, for instance, Davide Frattesi and Federico Dimarco, have made up for that.
