I prefer him converting the chance from 6 meter regularly to scoring stunning volley from nowhere. Great game afterall, just prefer him being reliable goalscorer rather than streaky highlight maker.

if his finishing was better he would already have 10+ hat tricks with Inter.

his game yesterday was good. I was shocked when he was not the first striker that was subbed.

Notice how in the build-up to his goal, Lautaro pauses his run (while Lukaku attacks the forward space) to provide an option in between the midfield passer and forwardmost attacker.

Like I said during the game, it wouldn't be Lautaro if he didn't make some poor decisions on the ball. And while it's only been a couple of games of course, I feel like it's becoming a more established fixture of how we play I hope to see even more of this.

If his finishing was better, he would already have been sold for big money.
Exactly. I don't get this constant, year in year out moaning about his finishing. Lautaro is what he is, he's not Icardi-level finisher. But he's a lot more in other aspects of the game. If there was the world class finishing on top, we wouldn't have Lautaro anymore, he'd be at Man City etc already.

Let's enjoy what Inter have in him.

Not necessarily, we still have Brozo, Barella, Bastoni, Skrinair, etc, around, for how long remains to be seen, but lets not look for random ways to excuse the mediocracy of Lautoro's game. There're areas where he needs to improve and going by last nights game, he's on the right trajectory.

With Lautaro it's really funny how he scores from crazy angles and tough one touch shots while can't tap in an easy chance. Just built different.

75 goals in 125 appearances? gtfo. he has 75 goals in 183 apps.

Obviously still good but there's a big difference between a 0.6 and a 0.41 strike rate.

One of the few key players that I can't blame tonight.

Brozo, Barella, Bastoni, all were shit, at least Lautaro tried.

I love the way he uses his body, so smart. It's not new since I saw it the year of the Scudetto but it still impress me.
