After scoring against Cagliari, quality goal although one that didn’t give Inter the victory, Lautaro Martinez is now aiming to score in double digit for this season. Not only that, Il Toro is chasing Mauro Icardi’s record in the first year wearing the Inter shirt as the Inter number 9 scored 9 goals (all in Serie A) in the 2013-2014 season (10 goals with Sampdoria in previous year).
It is impossible for Lautaro to reach Milito’s achievement (30 goals and treble in first year) or that of Palacio (22 goals in 2012-2013). It will be difficult for him to get 16 goals by Angelillo (1957-58) and Crespo (2002-2003) or the 15 of Ramon Diaz (1988-1989). But overall, he has already surpassed my expectation in his very first year in Serie A, in a totally different league, country, has to deal with a new language and environment.
