Inter Milan vs Udinese Full Match Reports

Inter Milan reclaimed their position at the summit of Serie A (SA) with a commanding 4-0 triumph over Udinese at the San Siro, extending their unbeaten streak across all competitions to an impressive 13 matches (W10, D3).

After sending a clear message with a comprehensive victory over defending SA champions Napoli in their previous outing, Inter exuded confidence in the early stages. Lautauro Martínez struck a close-range header against the post, and Marco Silvestri denied Federico Dimarco’s low effort, maintaining the relentless offensive momentum. Hakan Çalhanoğlu nearly broke the deadlock just before the half-hour mark, firing narrowly wide from range.

Unfazed by missed opportunities, Inter continued their relentless pace toward halftime. A golden chance presented itself when Nehuen Perez fouled Martínez in the box, awarding Inter a penalty. Çalhanoğlu calmly dispatched the spot-kick into the bottom-left corner, securing his seventh SA goal of the season.

Emboldened by the breakthrough, Inter accelerated further, securing two goals within three minutes before halftime. Dimarco displayed composure to sweep home from Çalhanoğlu’s precise pass, while Marcus Thuram finished off a sensational team move, tapping in at the back post from Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s deft cross, providing a commanding three-goal lead at halftime.

With victory nearly assured, Inter eased off the gas in the early stages of the second half while maintaining a threat in the final third. Dimarco, a constant outlet from wing-back, kept Udinese on the defensive. As the clock ticked into the final half-hour, Udinese, facing their lowest points tally in a top-flight campaign since 1994/95, sought damage limitation. Lorenzo Lucca briefly believed he had scored a consolation, only to be denied by the assistant’s flag.

In the final minutes, Inter crowned a straightforward evening with a sublime strike from talisman Martínez, securing a historic sixth successive top-flight home win in the club’s history. Udinese, enduring a dismal SA form with one win in 19 matches (D9, L9), will be eager for a rebound against Sassuolo in their upcoming fixture.
