The fight for the top 4 in Italy is reaching the decisive moments. After Atalanta was left out of the Champions League almost definitively with a 1:0 loss to Salerno, Milan also failed, losing 2:0 to Spezia. Later, Inter defeated Sassuolo 1:3 and increased the gap from the city rival to five points. The games from the Italian league were broadcast on the ONE2 channel for Yes, HOT Cellcom TV and Partner TV subscribers.
Inter – Sassuolo 2:4
The Nerazzurri continue their wonderful form and recorded their fifth league win in a row and sixth in all competitions. It started in the 41st minute with a huge simple goal from Romelu Lukaku, who broke free of his brake and kicked from outside the box while turning to connect. An own goal by Ruan Trusoldi (55′) and another by Lautro Martinez closed things out for the hosts, who were still under a bit of pressure towards the end when Matheus Henrique and Davide Pratsi scored, but it was too little and too late when Lukaku completed a brace in added time. Inter is tied with Juventus with 66 points and is close to securing a place in the Champions next season.
Spezia – Milan 0:2
It could very well be that the 2:0 loss to Inter in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals was the Rossoneri’s last home game in the continent’s top club for the coming year. Premislav Wisniewski scored Spezia’s first in the 75th minute, with Salvatore Esposito’s simple free kick deciding the game in the 85th minute. Milan is in fifth place and after Inter’s victory, their gap from them is already five points and four from fourth place Lazio. Spezia, on the other hand, is still below the red line but is coming back to life in a big way.
Salerno – Atalanta 0:1
If the visitor dreamed of a place in the Champions League, she received a strong blow in the wing in the final minutes, with a disappointing loss to the bottom team. The host got three very critical points and she will probably stay another season in the top league in the land of the boot. Antonio Canderaba won the game in the 93rd minute.
