Despite assist Dumfries, Inter fall at Feyenoord opponent Lazio | NOW

Internazionale faced their first Serie A defeat of the season on Friday. The team from Milan, despite an assist from Denzel Dumfries, lost 3-1 at Lazio.

Dumfries provided the assist for Lautaro Martínez’s 1-1 early in the second half. The Orange international headed the ball in a messy situation after a free kick towards the goal, after which Martínez gave the last push.

Five minutes before half time Felipe Anderson had given Lazio the lead. The Brazilian headed in from close range after a beautiful pass from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Luis Alberto gave the home team the lead again fifteen minutes before the end with a beautiful goal. The Spanish substitute shot the ball into the corner with the outside of his foot fifteen minutes before the end. In the final phase, Pedro, who had also come in, decided the match.

Dumfries was substituted a few minutes before Lazio’s 2-1. Stefan de Vrij played the entire game at Inter, which is now fourth. Lazio leads the Serie A with seven points from three matches. Several teams can pass the Romans later this weekend.

Earlier in the day, Lazio was linked to Feyenoord in the draw for the Europa League group stage. FC Midtjylland and Sturm Graz are the other teams in group F.
