Win, win, win… and win again. Inter’s march in Serie A seems to be stuck in high gear, as the Nerazzurri obtained yet another 3 points in their quest for a Scudetto renewal. To pay the price this time were Edy Reja’s Napoli, who despite coming back late into the 2nd half with a Roberto Sosa goal, could not overcome the two early tallies by fellow Argentine Julio Ricardo Cruz.
Earlier in the day, Atalanta couldn’t do better than a 0-0 goalless draw against visitors Udinese, who were playing without their in-form striker Antonio Di Natale. Riccardo Zampagna had the perfect opportunity to put the home team in the lead, but blasted his 2nd half penalty shot onto the crossbar.
Inter 2-1 Napoli
It was another victory for the Nerazzurri, and another double for an Inter player: following Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s steps, Argentine striker Julio Cruz provided the winning goals for Roberto Mancini’s team today, and continued the Nerazzurri’s 42-match scoring streak. For 80 minutes this fixture was essentially a one-team affair, and when Sosa brought back some hope for Napoli in the 80′ minute mark, it was already too late.
