Inter have not lost their way at home against Samdoria. The Nerazzurri were ready before half-time thanks to goals from De Vrij and Barella. After the break, Correa put the 3-0 final figures on the board. Lukaku had just over twenty minutes to show himself, but was unable to score.
Who would have thought that Romelu Lukaku would start the match against Sampdoria, was disappointed. Lukaku made his comeback earlier this week with a strong comeback against Viktoria Pilsen in the Champions League, but coach Simone Inzaghi is careful with our compatriot. So Lukaku started on the bench just like against Pilsen.
Enter and score. That was the summary of Romelu Lukaku’s match against Viktoria Pilsen last week in the Champions League. Our compatriot was sidelined for several months with a nasty injury, but immediately showed on his return that he has not forgotten scoring yet. Against Sampdoria, Lukaku hoped to repeat that trick.
Simeone gave the striker another 22 minutes to show himself. Then Inter was already 2-0 up after a header by Stefan de Vrij and a great goal by Nicolo Barella.
Our compatriot didn’t score anymore, but Lukaku did see how Correa put the 3-0 final score on the board. Thanks to the victory, Inter is crawling a little closer to the top in the Serie A. Although it is still eight points behind leader Napoli.
Lukaku still has a few games left to get in top form for the World Cup in Qatar next month.
