MILAN - Inter beat Cagliari 4-0 at San Siro on Sunday evening, their fifth win a row and their fourth without conceding. They're now top of Serie A with 40 points, one ahead of Milan, four ahead of Atalanta and four ahead of Napoli.
Following an emotional pre-match in which the Nerazzurri paid tribute to Peppino Prisco on the 20th anniversary of his death Simone Inzaghi's men got stuck into Cagliari. After Nicolo Barella and Milan Skriniar came close it was Lautaro Martinez who opened the scoring, nodding in Hakan Calhanoglu's corner. The Argentine then had a great chance to double Inter's lead up Alessio Cragno managed to save his spot kick.
Inter didn't let up in the second half: Alexis Sanchez made it 2-0 with a sweet volley from a Barella cross. Calhanoglu scored a long-range beauty to make it 3-0, his sixth goal in Serie A so far this campaign. Lautaro then got a second, finishing off a lovely pass by the ever-influential Barella. Sanchez nearly made it five when his shot crashed off the woodwork, having received a pass from debutant full-back Mattia Zanotti.
