A rare goal for Matteo Darmian ended Cagliari’s stubborn resistance and ensured Inter Milan continue their remorseless drive to the Serie A title.
Just minutes after coming on as substitute, Achraf Hakimi exchanged passes with Romelu Lukaku and drove towards the by-line before driving a ball across goal which the former Manchester United full-back Darmian slid in to turn home.
The goal was harsh on Cagliari’s stubborn defence and goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario who made a number of stops after coming in for Alessio Cragno who contracted Covid-19 on international duty.
