Inter Milan close in on title, Ronaldo on song for Juventus

Inter Milan moved a step closer to ending Juventus’ nine-year stranglehold of the Serie A title by beating Sassuolo 2-1 to move 11 points clear at the top of the table.

Romelu Lukaku headed home the opener for Antonio Conte’s side before Lautaro Martinez made it 2-0 on the counter.

Hamed Traore curled home a late consolation for Sassuolo to set up a tense finale, but the Nerazzurri hanged in for the vital three points.

Juventus also won as they beat Napoli 2-1 to climb into third place, one point behind AC Milan in second.

Andrea Pirlo’s men are however 12 points behind leaders Inter with nine games remaining.

Cristiano Ronaldo fired Juventus ahead against Napoli before Paulo Dybala marked his return from injury with a superb curled finish. Lorenzo Insigne pulled one back for Napoli from the penalty spot.

Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli are fifth on the log, two points off the Champions League places.
