Goals by striker Lautaro Martinez and midfielder Nicolo Barella helped Inter Milan ease to a comfortable 2-0 home win over Salernitana in Serie A on Sunday.
Inter opened the scoring in the 14th minute through Lautaro, who lashed a shot from outside the box and the ball bounced in front of Salernitana keeper Luigi Sepe before finding the bottom corner.
The Argentine striker netted after a goalless streak of five league games.
Barella doubled Inter’s advantage at the San Siro in the 58th minute, controlling the ball superbly in the box and placing a shot into the bottom right corner.
Inter, last season’s runner-up, moved up one place to seventh in the standings on 18 points. It is one point behind AS Roma and two adrift of fifth-placed AC Milan, which has a game in hand and play at Verona later on Sunday.
Salernitana remained 12th on 10 points.
