Martinez brace fires Inter Milan top of Serie A
Inter Milan leapfrogged Juventus at the top of the Italian Serie A by beating visiting SPAL 2-1 Sunday after the Bianconeri were held 2-2 at home against Sassuolo.
Inter Milan moved above Juventus to the top of the Serie A table with a 2-1 win at home to SPAL thanks to a Lautaro Martinez double on Sunday.
The Argentina international struck with a low finish into the corner and headed in his second goal before half-time to take his tally for the season to 13 in all competitions.
SPAL pulled one back in the second half through a moment of individual brilliance from Mattia Valoti, but Inter hung on to take advantage of Juventus dropping points by drawing 2-2 against Sassuolo earlier in the day.
Inter are now one point ahead of Juve on 37 points, while SPAL remain second from bottom and without a win in their past seven matches.
