Inter Milan Defeat Empoli 2-0 to Maintain Serie A Lead

Inter Milan showcased their dominance in Serie A by securing a 2-0 victory over Empoli at the iconic San Siro stadium. The match saw goals from Federico Dimarco and Alexis Sanchez, both making crucial contributions to Inter’s triumph.

Alexis Sanchez, who came on as a substitute, sealed the win for Inter with a goal in the 81st minute, converting a well-placed cross from Denzel Dumfries. Earlier in the game, Federico Dimarco had put Inter in the lead with a clinical volley early in the first half, showcasing the team’s attacking prowess.

Simone Inzaghi‘s squad now holds a commanding 14-point lead at the top of the Serie A table, with key fixtures against Udinese and Cagliari coming up. The looming Milan Derby on April 22 presents an opportunity for Inter to secure their first league title since 2021.

Despite moments of imprecision in their finishing, Inter’s early goal from Federico Dimarco set the tone for the match. Empoli put up a fight, with Inter’s lead jeopardized when Francesco Acerbi‘s challenge on Sebastiano Luperto raised penalty shouts but went uncalled by the referee.

Inter’s victory saw Empoli fall into the Serie A relegation zone, trailing behind Frosinone on goals scored. Empoli’s upcoming fixture against Torino becomes crucial in their battle to climb out of the bottom three and secure their top-flight status.

Inter’s performance, although not at their best, underscores their title aspirations this season. With the prospect of claiming the Serie A crown within reach, the team’s focus shifts to maintaining their form in the final stretch of the campaign.
