He did everything right, just some of his shots (or selection) were mid-to-bad and also he had one really good "shooting while falling" shot that he should've scored.

Also they played against a parked bus the whole game. The only goal came from a Messi free kick

Super Lautaro again tonight. Despite that he didn't score, was still amazing while providing for others and making his own self look like a king.

Incredible performance, for real. He is not even that selfish as he was in earlier seasons. We are so lucky to have him. Great guy, great player and a true leader.

Hopefully he never leaves.

Lautaro evolved so much. I recall his early days, where he mostly tried to pull off some tricks and fell down in every touch, hoping for a foul or a penalty.
Now, he is the real captain and leader of this team. El Toro fights like a bull and working so hard for the team. He never speaks flamboyant words like Lukaka for example, but his actions on the field speak much more.

Scoring 5 goals while Lautaro not being on the goal scoring sheet is an indication of a healthy and unpredictable team. It shows that we're not dependent on our captain and historical goal scorer to score and win games. Teamwork over individuals is what I've seen from Inter today, and Lautaro has done well as a captain to accomplish that.

Lautaro is the type of player that can impact the game without being on the scoresheet. He set such a high standard in the first 3 games, so he's obviously not going to score every game, but he was still very good today. He was never going to be at his best physically as I believe Argentina had a trip to Bolivia a few days ago. Even with that, he set up our 3rd/4th goals, and had a great ball to release Dumfries for the second goal.

Such a mature player.

I liked his composure yesterday. It quite surprised me actually, cause one of the things that annoyed me the most about him was his hasty decision making. But so far this season he looks more mature and calm and if that continues we might see a more consistent Lautaro than the previous seasons.

He still makes some poor decisions - like when he drops deeper into midfield to help with build up but then loses the ball trying to dribble instead of making easy passes - but he's still learning. Ultimately, he's becoming a more complete player which comes at a great timing for us.

Hopefully this fantastic development of his game extends to his consistency as well.

I think he wanted to take the PK (around 8th min mark). Glad Inzaghi finally set his foot down and determined the hierarchy to take PK. I love Lautaro but his PK taking skill is very concerning.

Sumptuous performance. It's hard to say whether he or Thuram has been our best player so far.
