Rafa Benitez’s days are numbered. Today, the Serie champions fell to Lazio, 1-3 as Giuseppe Biava, Mauro Zarate, and Hernanes scored while Goran Pandev pulled one back. Samuel Eto’o is still serving a suspension while first goalie Julio Cesar will rejoin Champions League duty against next week. Inter also lost Dejan Stankovic through injury.
However, full marks to the excellent Mauro Zarate who continues to impress with his very intricate foot skills and terrorized Inter down that left flank. Hernanes has been the pick for Lazio this season and his free kick was all class.
With this loss, Inter are now lagging 10 points behind leaders AC Milan with 33 points while Lazio follow with 30 points. Very impressive performance by the Roman club and if they continue to play this well they might get be able to get that third scudetto, last won in 1999- 2000.
