Inter maintained their 100 per cent record in Serie A as Antonio Conte’s side recorded a 1-0 win over Lazio at San Siro on Wednesday.
The hosts, fresh from a 2-0 derby triumph over AC Milan at the weekend, opened the scoring with the first effort at goal when Danilo D’Ambrosio headed home after 23 minutes.
Lazio ought to have been level before the interval, with Joaquin Correa guilty of wasting two excellent opportunities against an in-form Samir Handanovic.
The second-half introduction of Ciro Immobile, benched after his adverse reaction at being substituted in the 2-0 win over Parma on Sunday, failed to prompt a Lazio comeback.
Conte’s men have now won five from five to mark themselves out as the most likely challengers to Juventus’ top-flight supremacy.
