Fiorentina 3-4 Inter: Lautaro Martinez bags new record in dramatic Serie A win

Lautaro Martinez guided Inter to an incredible and last-ditch 4-3 win over Fiorentina in Serie A.

In a game that was full of refereeing talking points, great goals and late drama, Martinez set up Nicolo Barella in the second minute to hand Inter a lead. He got on the scoresheet himself some minutes later to double the advantage. Arthur Cabral pulled one back from the spot and Fiorentina made it 2-2 through Jonathan Ikone. Martinez handed the lead to Inter once again later, only to see Luka Jovic equalise in the 90th minute.

But in the 95th minute, a deflected clearance met Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who grabbed a last-ditch winner for the Nerazzurri to bring them into the conversation for a top four finish once again.

Because of Martinez’s performance, the Argentine has become the first Inter striker to have scored and assisted for the side in the first 15 minutes of a game since Diego Milito did so against Cesena back in January 2011.
