Lukaku gets his revenge on Zlatan with style
Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic went head-to-head again on Sunday, weeks after their ill-tempered clash during last month’s Milan derby.
The former Manchester United teammates were involved in a furious altercation during Inter’s 2-1 win over AC Milan back on January 26.
Zlatan opened the scoring in that match but was later sent off. Inter went on to seal all three points thanks to goals from Lukaku and Christian Eriksen.
Inter and AC Milan went into this weekend’s derby first and second in the Serie A table, respectively.
But Inter outclassed their opponents on this occasion. Two goals from Lautaro Martinez put the Nerazzurri 2-0 up by the 57th minute.
Lukaku then made it 3-0 with 25 minutes remaining with a brilliant solo effort.
The 27-year-old, who has been hugely impressive since leaving England for Italy, picked the ball up just inside the AC Milan half and powered his way towards goal before unleashing an unstoppable low effort past Gianluigi Donnarumma.
