Unstoppable Martinez scores four as Inter cruise past Salernitana

Lautaro Martinez scored all four goals for Inter Milan in their 4-0 victory against Salernitana, propelling them back to the top of Serie A. Martinez came off the bench in the second half and scored four goals in 27 minutes, including one from the penalty spot. This achievement made history as Martinez became the first player to score four goals as a substitute in Serie A since 1994. Inter had dropped below AC Milan in the table but regained the top spot with 18 points from seven matches. Martinez is now the league’s top scorer with nine goals in seven Serie A matches.

Martinez expressed that the most important thing was that Inter won the game, despite his personal achievement. He emphasized the significance of bouncing back after their loss to Sassuolo and stated that winning this match was crucial for the team. In the first half, Inter dominated the game, but Salernitana gradually found their footing and controlled the tempo. However, Martinez opened the scoring in the 62nd minute with a delicate chip over the goalkeeper. Three minutes later, Salernitana’s apparent equalizer was disallowed due to an offside run. Martinez scored his second goal in the 77th minute with a confident finish from a pass by Nicolo Barella. He completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot with five minutes remaining, and then added a fourth goal in stoppage time.

Inter manager Simone Inzaghi praised Martinez’s performance and highlighted his consistency throughout his time at the club. Inzaghi referred to Martinez as the team’s leader and captain, urging him to continue in the same vein. Inter will now focus on their upcoming Champions League match against Benfica and a Serie A home game against Bologna.

Overall, Lautaro Martinez’s four-goal heroics propelled Inter Milan to victory and back to the top of Serie A. His historic achievement as a substitute showcased his importance to the team, and Inter’s manager praised his consistent performances.
