Reigning champions Inter Milan advanced to the top of the Italian Football League after beating Roma 3-1 on Saturday.
Inter took advantage of the fact that rivals and neighbor Milan will play Lazio on Sunday, and finished top of unbeaten Roma in 12 consecutive league games before playing in San Siro.
Half an hour from the start winger Denzil Dumfries gave Inter a goal, then Marcelo Prosovic added a second goal with a personal effort five minutes before the break.
Argentina’s Ladoro Martinez scored the third goal for Inter after a corner kick in the 52nd minute.
Henrik Michitaryan reduced the deficit for Roma in the 85th minute, but the remaining time was not enough to end the uprising.
With this, he reached his fourth consecutive victory in the Inter League, bringing up 72 points from 33 games, one point behind the same number of struggling Milan. Roma were fifth with 58 points.
