Inter Milan secured the top spot in the Serie A with a 3-0 victory over reigning champions Napoli, on Sunday night.
The visitors dominated the match, with goals from Hakan Calhanoglu, Nicolò Barella, and Marcus Thuram.
The opening minutes saw Napoli’s Eljif Elmas testing Inter’s goalkeeper, Yann Sommer, with a powerful shot.
However, Inter’s Marcus Thuram was the one who had an early goal disallowed for offside.
Inter’s breakthrough came just before halftime when Federico Dimarco’s cross was met by Denzel Dumfries, who nodded it down for Barella.
The midfielder set up Calhanoglu for a strike into the bottom corner, raising controversy as Napoli claimed a foul in the build-up.
Barella extended Inter’s lead in the second half with a finish from Lautaro Martinez’s pass. Despite Napoli’s efforts, including a near miss by Victor Osimhen and a save by Sommer, Inter remained firm.
Inter sealed the victory with Thuram tapping in a cross from Juan Cuadrado.
