Juventus Back On Top As Lazio Win Inter Milan.

Juventus reclaimed top spot in Serie A on Sunday with a 2-0 win over 10-man Brescia but Lazio moved just a point behind into second after beating Inter Milan 2-1 in a clash between the title rivals in Rome.

Paulo Dybala and Juan Cuadrado scored in both half as champions Juventus rediscovered their winning form at home.

Inter Milan drop from top spot to third, three points behind the champions, after falling to just their second defeat of the season.

Sparks flew at the Stadio Olimpico with Romelu Lukaku threating Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Straskosha early with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic rattling the bar.

But it was defender Ashley Young who broke through just before the break with his first Serie A goal for Inter Milan after his move from Manchester United.

The 34-year-old got his foot to tap-in off a rebound after Straskosha had cleared from former Lazio player Antonio Candreva.

A Stefan de Vrij foul on Ciro Immobile allowed the Serie A top scorer to slot in his 26th goal in 24 games this season, five minutes after the break.

Milinkovic-Savic snatched the winner after 69 minutes amid confusion in front of goal.

Inter’s Lautaro Martinez had a goal ruled offside after 78 minutes as the northerners suffered their second defeat after losing to Juventus in October.

Simone Inzaghi’s Lazio extended their unbeaten run to 19 games as they target their first Scudetto since 2000.
