Thanks to a 2-1 victory over Sassuolo, Internazionale is one step closer to the first national title since 2010. Juventus won against Napoli on Wednesday with the same figures, partly thanks to a hit by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Romelu Lukaku (tenth minute) and Lautaro Martínez (67th) made the hits for Inter in the empty Giuseppe Meazza.

It was already the 21st goal of the season for the Belgian striker, who also assisted Martínez's goal.

Sassuolo did not get further than a late connection goal from Hamed Traoré (85th minute).

Stefan de Vrij played the full ninety minutes as a central defender.

The Orange-international played his first game since he became infected with the corona virus in mid-March.

With nine matches to play, Inter has an eleven point lead over fellow city rivals AC Milan.

Ronaldo makes 25th goal at Juve

Juventus is twelve points behind Inter in third place.

The defending champion recorded a 2-1 win over Napoli on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the score in the thirteenth minute.

The Portuguese superstar leads the Serie A top scorers list with 25 hits.

More than fifteen minutes before time, Paulo Dybala signed for the 2-0.

The Argentinian returned to Juventus as a substitute, just like Weston McKennie and Arthur.

The trio had received disciplinary punishment from the club for attending an illegal corona party.

Lorenzo Insigne used a penalty kick for Napoli in injury time, which was awarded after a foul by Giorgio Chiellini.

Matthijs de Ligt played the entire game with trainer Andrea Pirlo's team.

At Napoli, former Eredivisie players Dries Mertens and Hirving Lozano were replaced in the second half.

The South Italian team is three points behind Juventus in fifth place.
