Lega Serie A Matchweek 23 hits and misses: Inter trash Milan to become clear leaders as Atalanta send warning to Real Madrid beating Napoli; Juve face Crotone tonight

Lukaku and Lautaro lead Inter past AC Milan in top-of-the-table derby (0-3)

Inter have moved four points ahead of city rivals AC Milan in Serie A, with Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez scoring the goals in a 3-0 victory for Antonio Conte's side.

It took just five minutes for Inter to strike first, with Lukaku eventually managing to find Lautaro in the box and with the Argentine heading past Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Although both sides had chances in the remainder of the first half, it was AC Milan who came out flying at the beginning of the second period and Samir Handanovic had to make two great saves to deny Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as well as stopping a Sandro Tonali shot.

After weathering that storm, Inter then doubled their lead in the 57th minute as an Ivan Periic cut back was tapped in by Lautaro against the run of play.

Just nine minutes later, it was 3-0 as Lukaku drove forward and finished well to make Inter's lead in the match even more comfortable.

Their lead at the top of the table has grown now too, as the Nerazzurri now have a four-point lead over AC Milan as they continue their quest for their first Scudetto since 2009/10.

Atalanta fire warning to Real Madrid with victory over Napoli (4-2)

Real Madrid are anxiously awaiting fitness news ahead of their Champions League tie with Atalanta, yet the Bergamo club have given Los Blancos even more cause for concern as they returned to their blistering attacking best in a 4-2 win over Napoli on Sunday.

Having somewhat slipped domestically this term, Atalanta have been doing all they can to rebound from the loss of Papu Gomez in the January transfer window and secure another year of Champions League football.

A convincing victory over Napoli has propelled them back into fourth place, as they took apart the Naples club.

Duvan Zapata is likely to be back to face Real Madrid after a battle against form and fitness, and he opened the scoring after 52 minutes.

Piotr Zielinski equalised six minutes later, all before Robin Gosens, Luis Muriel and Cristian Romero took the game beyond Napoli in a wild second half.

There was concern at the end as Victor Osimhen went down with a head injury, with the forward taken to hospital.
