SportsLukaku scores 300th career goal as Inter go top of Serie A by Ayomide Arowobusoye February 14, 2021 written by Ayomide Arowobusoye February 14, 2021 Romelu Lukaku scored twice to reach 300 career goals as Inter Milan moved above AC Milan to the top of Serie A with an impressive 3-1 home win over Lazio on Sunday. Lukaku’s brace came in the first half as Inter made the most of their city rivals’ surprising loss at Spezia on Saturday. Inter, bidding for a first Scudetto since winning the treble under Jose Mourinho in 2010, are now one point clear of AC Milan at the top of the table, with Roma six points further back in third. The stage is set for a mouthwatering Milan derby at the San Siro next Sunday. Inter coach Antonio Conte apologised on Saturday for appearing to show the finger to his former club’s directors at half-time of the controversial Italian Cup match at Juventus on Tuesday. At the San Siro, Lukaku opened the scoring on 22 minutes from the penalty spot after Wesley Hoedt fouled Lautaro Martinez. The Belgium forward then moved level with Cristiano Ronaldo at the top of the Serie A goalscoring charts just before the break, as he hit a loose ball first time on the half-volley for his 16th league goal of the campaign.
