Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku equals 70 years Serie A record.
The Belgium striker is the first Inter Millan player in its history since 1950 to have score 15 goals away goals on the road in a single Serie A season.
The striker equals the record for away goals scored for Inter millan after he scored two goals in inter Millan’s 3-0 win at Genoa on Saturday.
Romelu Lukaku gave the Azzurri’s lead on the 34 minutes of the match after he headed pass Gemoa goalkeeper Mattia Perrin from a cross by Christiano Biraghi.
On-loan Manchester United player Alexis Sanchez scored a seond for the Nerazzurri in the second half of the game, the Belgium forward raced clear Genoa defenders to collect a neatly delivered Marcelo Brozovic pass and blasted into the net.
The former Chelsea and Manchester United forward has been in great form since the restart of the league since its suspension due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
Lukaku has six goals in nine league games that have been played from mid-June, the Belgian has taken his total goals to 23 in the league and has 29 goal in 44 appearances in all competitions.
The victory over Genoa on Saturday extended Inter Millan’s streak to six games unbeaten, and they are placed second on the league table with only two matches to play.
Inter Milan are still four points behind league leaders Juventus, who could most likely secure their 36th Serie A trophy and their ninth consecutive title on Sunday if they emerge victorious against Genoa.
Lukaku, after the match, told the press, “On a personal level, I am happy, but I also that as a team, we can do so much more.”
“We have a good team. It is not easy for us to be in second place, because we want to win and go as high as possible. I want to help inter achieve that”
