Lazio came from behind to beat Inter Milan and take second place in Serie A.

It was a battle between second and third in Serie A, and Lazio came out on top.

Not only are they now firmly in second place, but they are also only one point behind league leaders Juventus too.

Despite havig home field advantage, Lazio were dominated by Inter in terms of possession.

That possession paid off in the 44th minute.

Former Manchester United defender Ashley Young got his first for Inter and the opening goal on the day for the visitors.

Young was the quickest to react to the ball pushed out by a save from Strakosha in the Lazio goal.

Only five minutes after the restart, Lazio was awarded a penalty.

Immobile drew the foul from Stefan de Vrij.

Ciro Immobile stepped up to convert from 12 yards out.

Lazio 1 – 1 Inter Milan game on.

While Inter continued to dominate and create chances, things just didn’t appear to be going their way.

Lukaku missed a couple of chances. While De Vrij failed to atone for his earlier mistake and blew the chance to score with a misguided header.

Lazio was not out of this game though and Simone Inzaghi’s side kept calm and waited for their chance.

That came by the way of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the 69th minute.

The corner came in and it was a scramble by Inter to clear the ball. A shot blocked on the line and the rebound falls to Savic.

He spins his man and fired in a left-foot shot.

2-1 Lazio lead and there was no looking back from there.
