For a few weeks now, thanks to the case of Mauro Icardi and how he has quit his own team in the middle of the season, Lautaro Martinez has been the man in the attack of Inter.
It is no coincidence that he was the only one that had a decent performance at Cagliari by scoring his 5th goal in Serie A (8 goals overall) and sacrificing for the team. In Cagliari, as pointed out by the Corriere dello Sport, Il Toro also struck the post that could have given Inter a 2-2 draw. He also had 10 shots attempted on goal: 8 from inside the box, 2 outside. The Inter number 10 did a lot of running as well and had 35 touches of the ball.
He must continue to grow especially in terms of team game because Lautaro only completed 7 passes but overall, he is showing that the burden of replacing Inter’s former captain is not unbearable. Very important not only for the present but also the future: Inter can count on the former Racing striker. Another test for Inter and Lautaro is this Thursday away at Eintracht Frankfurt, important for European ambition of the Nerazzurri.
