MILAN,

MAURO Icardi scored in either half as Inter Milan beat Lazio 3-0 under the rain in Rome to move ahead of Napoli and into second place behind Juventus in Serie A. Inter skipper Icardi tapped in the opener after 28 minutes with Marcelo Brozovic adding a second before the break. The Argentine snatched the third after 70 minutes in the Stadio Olimpico, as Inter with 22 points from 10 games overtook Napoli on goal difference.


Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli were held 1-1 by Roma on Sunday. Inter and Napoli are both six points behind Juventus who beat Empoli 2-1 on Saturday thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo double.
“We’re on the right track,” said Icardi after his side’s sixth straight league win. It was also his sixth league goal this season.


“I’m going through a good period of form along with Inter. We’re playing well, apart from the game with Barcelona (2-0 Champions League defeat), and want to do even better.”
“We’re not the anti-Juventus, as we’re a few steps away to reach what they’ve done in recent years, but we are happy with what we are doing.”
