Inter beats Empoli 2-0 to make another step towards the second star

Di Marco and Alexis Sanchez

Inter secured a 2-0 victory against Empoli at home, solidifying their grip on the Serie A title race. Federico Dimarco opened the scoring just five minutes into the game with a powerful half-volley from inside the Empoli box.

Throughout the first half, both teams exchanged attacking opportunities, with the goalkeepers forced into action multiple times as Empoli searched for an equalizer.

In the second half, Inter’s performance improved, and they had several chances to extend their lead. Niccolo Barella missed a promising opportunity, and Benjamin Pavard was denied by a superb block.

With just 10 minutes left on the clock, Inter’s nerves were calmed when Alexis Sanchez tapped in a precise cross from Denzel Dumfries, securing the victory.

Despite Empoli’s efforts to respond, they failed to register a shot on target in the second half. Ultimately, Inter comfortably sealed the win.

With this result, Inter maintains a commanding 13-point lead at the top of Serie A. They have the opportunity to clinch the title in three weeks’ time against arch-rivals AC Milan, provided neither team drops points before then.
