Inter Milan kept pace with AC Milan at the top of Serie A after beating 19th place Crotone 6-2 at the San Siro.

Romelu Lukaku has scored 35 goals in 50 games for Inter Milan
Lautaro Martinez scored a hat-trick as Inter Milan thrashed lowly Crotone to keep the pressure on Serie A leaders AC Milan.
Inter claimed an eighth consecutive league win and are two points behind AC Milan, who beat Benevento.
Romelu Lukaku scored his 50th Inter goal, with Achraf Hakimi on target and a Luca Marrone own goal.
Niccolo Zanellato had opened the scoring for Crotone and a Vladimir Golemic penalty had made it 2-2.
Martinez and Lukaku proved decisive for the northeners, with Lukaku continuing his prolific form for Inter as he set up a goal and scored one to take his goal tally for the season to 12. This makes him Serie A’s joint top scorer with Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo.
“There is great desire and it shows,” said Inter manager Antonio Conte as his side target their first Serie A title since 2010 with their European campaign over this season.
“It’s important to continue like this; we produce and create a lot, we score a lot of goals. It’s a pity for the goals conceded.”
