- Title : Inter dominates Salernitana to get back on top in Serie A
Lautaro Martinez's hat-trick sent Inter Milan to the top of the Serie A table with a rout of bottom club Salernitana
Defending champions Inter are one point above both Napoli and AC Milan, who meet in a huge match in Naples on Sunday.
Martinez ended a nine-game goal drought with his opener and then hit the second, both created by Nicolo Barella.
He smashed in his third from a pass by Edin Dzeko, who scored the final two goals himself.
They were Martinez's first three Serie A goals of 2022 after his last league strike had been against the same opponents, also in a 5-0 win, in December.
The top three are only separated by one point with 11 games to go - although Inter will be knocked off top spot on Sunday, no matter what the Napoli-Milan result is.
